Episode 5 of PT TV will be live Thursday December 5 at 5:30 PST / 8:30 EST. We will be talking postpartum PT with Stephanie Prendergast, MPT, a myofascial pelvic pain expert. In 2013, she will be the first PT to serve as the president of the International Pelvic Pain Society.
Most new moms think that postpartum symptoms are all part of a new normal they must learn to live with and their complaints are often dismissed by both the medical community and society. Stephanie will explain why it’s time to treat new moms right.
