- A quick little tangent into tips for toilet training your little one

- What kinds of products Intimate Rose makes and what purpose they serve

Break the stigma about keeping pelvic health talk behind closed doors. Join us, Flyte Therapy @flytetherapy, in chatting with pelvic health experts about all things pelvic floor and beyond.

We are a product (known as Flyte, we strengthen the pelvic floor when used for 5 min daily x 6 weeks, and rid of bladder leaks) and service company focused on meeting women where they are, empowering and supporting women in their pelvic health journeys, and increasing access to pelvic health. Check us out at www.flytetherapy.com

Now let's get to the Core of the Pelvic Floor! Hosted by Shravya Kovela, PT, DPT, OCS and supported by Flyte by Pelvital.

Dr. Gretchen Walsh is a virtual and in-person pelvic health physical therapist as well as the Director of Clinical Excellence and Leadership at Agile Virtual Physical Therapy. Agile Virtual PT provides virtual care for all types of conditions, from back and shoulder pain all the way to...yep, pelvic health!

We talk about...

- What does virtual physical therapy even look like? Especially for the pelvic floor (AKA do you need to be getting naked on camera? Spoiler: no)

- What subset of the population is most likely to seek out virtual care and why?

- Is virtual physical therapy effective? What does the research say?

- When is it better to see someone in-person versus via virtual pelvic floor physical therapy?

We constantly want to be bringing attention to resources and treatment options that are legitimate and evidence-based in the pelvic health world. Virtual physical therapy is a fantastic option. Receiving pelvic health care does not have to be all or nothing.

It's for this reason we are so thrilled to be partners with Agile Virtual PT. Via our Ask A PT service, we help guide our customers with tips and tricks, education, and support - while using or not using Flyte. But if you need additional individualized care, we are armed with resources - virtual and in-person. And we absolutely love referring to the fabulous pelvic PTs at Agile Virtual PT.

Who are we? We are a product (known as Flyte, clinically shown to strengthen the pelvic floor when used for 5 min daily x 6 weeks, and rid of bladder leaks) and service company focused on increasing access to pelvic health care that is evidence-based, can fit into your lifestyle, AND connects you to a wealth of resources and experts. Check us out at www.flytetherapy.com

Now let's get to the Core of the Pelvic Floor! Hosted by Shravya Kovela, PT, DPT, OCS and supported by Flyte by Pelvital.

Dr. Ginger Garner is an integrative PT, eucator, and longtime advocate committed to making physical therapy services accessible, affordable, and equitable, especially for pelvic health. She is the CEO of Living Well Institute, author of Medical Therapeutic Yoga, and owner of pelvic and orthopedic practice EudeMOMia in Greensboro, NC.

So basically a total power house. We talk about:

- What the voice even has to do with the pelvic floor?

- How your voice quality may indicate some pelvic floor involvement (and what kind of voice qualities to keep your eye on)

- Up to date research on how accurately people think they are using their pelvic floors vs how they actually are doing

- A fabulous case study showcasing the fact that it's about HOW we use our voice more so than how often, that is related to our pelvic floor

And so much more. Listen to this episode to learn about something you probably haven't thought about before, either as a clinician or simply someone who uses their voice all day (calling all singers, teachers, educators, doctors, and any other frequent voice users!). If anything, just listen for Ginger's casual musical voice because she for sure has that.
