Rebecca's Consult

About this Consult:

Rebecca is experiencing bladder leakage when she attends CrossFit-style fitness classes.

Specifically with skipping, tuck jumps and box jumps.

Rebecca recalls her vaginal birth 2 year ago as traumatic.

Her husband was unable to be in the room while the epidural was placed and superfluous medical staff spectating as she was pushing.

Since the birth of her son, her husband was deployed for 8 months and they have moved house numerous times. This has resulted in a new job for Rebecca as well.

Rebecca has a known grade 2 bladder prolapse which is no longer bothersome for her. She does picture what this would look like when doing her pelvic floor exercises.

Rebecca is a Women’s Health Physiotherapist so she has been managing her symptoms with her own assessment and treatment.

She is also seeing a counsellor regarding her birth experience.

Rebecca feels she cannot do her pelvic floor exercises in sitting with good quality contractions at this stage, so does them in supine only.

She is trying to prioritize exercise and increase her social circle as ways to help manage anxiety and depression.

Rebecca’s goals are to be able to fully participate in her exercise classes without worry or modification. 

What pattern does Rebecca demonstrate in her squats and jumps in this assessment?

What ideas does Antony bring up to help Rebecca reach her goals?

How is Rebecca feeling 2 years after her assessment?

It’s like you’re there with Antony, watching him work with someone just like your clients and being able to reflect and ask questions about the consult.
