About this Consult:
Betsy is a Personal Trainer who is 6 months post partum vaginal birth with vacuum extraction.
She has been having bladder prolapse symptoms and pelvic pain since her birth. Her attending OBGYN dismissed her concerns when she brought it up at her appointments after the birth.
Betsy saw a Pelvic Health Physio who suggested yoga, but Betsy prefers lifting weights and strength training. She didn’t receive specific guidance on how to get back into those exercises.
Betsy has done a lot of research online and has been trying to incorporate those rules and recommendations into her workouts. This differs from how she used to train, when she would hold her breath as she does her heavy lifts.
Betsy is afraid of doing more damage through her pelvis with her lifts, because that could impact her ability to care for her child and do her job.
Betsy doesn’t feel like herself. She feels like she doesn’t have any control over her post partum symptoms, when normally she likes to feel in control of everything.
Betsy says her symptoms can be all consuming, and also influences her intimacy with her husband.
What does Antony uncover in the subjective interview that is key to Betsy’s beliefs around her symptoms?
What strategies does Antony use to help Betsy eliminate her symptoms with squatting by the end of the session?
How is Betsy doing 2.5 years after the consult?
