Why every new mom needs Physical Therapy

Women’s Health article published in Fox News: Why every new mom needs Physical Therapy

After she gave birth to her son, Valerie Orsoni knew what to expect: a prescription from her doctor for 12 sessions of Physical therapy to rehabilitate her pelvic floor muscles.

 “Even when you’re a little girl in France, your mom always tells you to stay stretched and to always tuck in your tummy and contract your abs. When you do that, naturally it leads to contracting the perineum,” Orsoni, 45,  the founder of Lebodychallenge.com, said.

After the birth of her son, now 19, Orsoni underwent biofeedback, a treatment that uses an electrode or probe inserted into the vagina to measure the strength of the pelvic floor muscles and to help ensure that Kegel exercises are done correctly.

Although she was prepared for it, Orsoni admits she was a little embarrassed. “At first, it’s pretty surprising. They’re putting something in your vagina,” she recalled.

Orsoni, who now lives in San Francisco, Calif., said Postpartum rehabilitation is so important in fact that doctors in France won’t give women the green light to start exercising again without completing the two-to-three month program.

“The worst thing that you could do would be to go back to doing regular exercises after giving birth without doing perineum rehab,” she said.

Rehab for your pelvis and abs:

After giving birth, it’s common for women to deal with issues like urinary incontinence, diastasis recti— a separation of the rectus abdominis muscle— and pelvic pain.

In fact, approximately 85 percent of women have pain the first time they have sex after childbirth and nearly a quarter of them still do at 18 months postpartum, a recent study in the journal BJOG found.

“Most moms are in pain after birth and they just figure it’s common and normal but there is treatment for it. They don’t have to live with it,” said Marianne Ryan, a Physical therapist in New York City and author of “Baby Bod: Turn Flab to Fab in 12 Weeks Flat.”

In France and other countries like the Netherlands and Australia, postpartum Physical therapy is a common treatment to help women recover from the rigors of childbirth. Yet in the United States, women have a 6-week postpartum check-up and are told to resume their normal activities.  

“Not only do we do nothing in the U.S., but also if a woman goes to her physician, particularly her obstetrician, with these complaints after delivery it’s written off as ‘Well, you just had a baby,’” said Stephanie Prendergast, co-founder of The Pelvic Health and Rehabilitation Center in Los Angeles, Calif. and author of “Pelvic Pain Explained.”

“While that’s true, there are still musculoskeletal implications that come with both pregnancy, labor and delivery and of course, C-section,” she said.
Although they might be well-intentioned, OB-GYN’s are not trained to identify pelvic floor or abdominal problems like physical therapists are, Prendergast said.

Another issue is that although women are encouraged to do Kegel exercises, doing so can make perineal tears worse. What’s more, a study in the journal Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery found that 23 percent of women who said they knew how to do Kegel exercises did not do them correctly.

If problems are left untreated, over time they can lead to low-back pain and hip problems, urinary and bowel function issues such as urgency, frequency, burning, constipation, anal pain, and infection and pelvic organ prolapse, a condition in which the bladder, uterus or other organs descend into the vagina, Prendergast said.

What’s more, studies show that even if women feel fine after childbirth, it could take between 6 and 10 years until these issues become a problem.

How Physical therapy can help:

“In an ideal world, everybody should have an evaluation to identify what their particular issues are and get a specialized home program,” Prendergast said. 

A Physical therapist can help identify impairments in the tissues, muscles, nerves and joints and evaluate the abdominal wall and the pelvic floor muscles to determine what has changed during pregnancy, labor and delivery.
Once the issues are identified, women are given an individualized program to help the muscles heal, improve urinary, bowel and sexual function as well as the overall stability of the pelvis so they can do things like pick up their babies, Prendergast said.  

Physical therapists can also help moms do daily tasks in a way that doesn’t put pressure on the abdominal muscles, or even teach them how to have a bowel movement without straining the pelvic floor muscles, Ryan said.

Biofeedback, the therapy Orsoni used, can help, especially for those women who have recently given birth and find it hard to pinpoint their pelvic floor muscles. It can also help identify a temporary neuropathy, or damage along the nerve that controls the muscles.

“They may need electrical stimulation to help those muscles fire if the nerve can’t direct the muscle to do so itself,” Prendergast said.

Caring for a new baby can leave little time for sleep, a shower or a workout, much less multiple physical therapy sessions. Yet experts agree it’s one of the best things women can do for their health, both right after childbirth and in the future.

“Women deserve treatment,” Ryan said. “Your body is not going to just magically snap back together.”

Physiotherapy Policy Statements

Cricket injuries: a longitudinal study of the nature of injuries to South African cricketers

Objective: To determine the incidence and nature of injuries sustained by elite cricketers during a three season period in order to identify possible injury patterns.

Methods: Thirty six physiotherapists and 13 doctors working with 11 provincial and the South African national teams completed a questionnaire for each cricketer who presented with an injury during each season to determine anatomical site of injury, month of injury during the season, diagnosis, mechanism of injury, whether it was a recurrence of a previous injury, whether the injury had recurred again during the season, and biographical data.

Results: A total of 436 cricketers sustained 812 injuries. Bowling (41.3%), fielding and wicketkeeping (28.6%), and batting (17.1%) accounted for most of the injuries. The lower limbs (49.8%), upper limbs (23.3%), and back and trunk (22.8%) were most commonly injured. The injuries occurred primarily during first class matches (27.0%), limited overs matches (26.9%), and practices (26.8%) during the early part of the season. Acute injuries made up 64.8% of the injuries. The younger players (up to 24 years) sustained 57% of the first time injuries, and the players over 24 years of age sustained 58.7% of the injuries that recurred from a previous season. The injuries were mainly soft tissue injuries predominantly to muscle (41.0%), joint (22.2%), tendon (13.2%), and ligament (6.2%). The primary mechanism of injury was the delivery and follow through of the fast bowler (25.6%), overuse (18.3%), and fielding (21.4%).

Conclusion: The results indicate a pattern of cause of injury, with the young fast bowler most likely to sustain an acute injury to the soft tissues of the lower limb while participating in matches and practices during the early part of the season

Physiotherapy News by Physiotherapy Jobs Portal -Update on April 9 2016

Physiotherapy News-National:

1.  Running man: Milind Soman: It’s about wanting to do something. It’s like a daily metaphor, like planning for a normal day and doing various things. So, you plan similarly for an event of a different nature; it becomes symbolic of that. We will not have a doctor as part of the travelling crew because we have the experience of running long distances. But we will have a physiotherapist.

2. Andhra Pradesh will soon have its own statutory physiotherapy state council on the lines of Medical Council of India and Dental Council of India.Poonam Malakondaiah, Principal Secretary, Medical and Health Department, assured members of Physiotherapists’ Federation of Andhra Pradesh that a council would be in place soon when federation president Naga Satsih, vice-president B.V. Hari Krishna, secretary Subani Shaik called on Ms. Malakondaiah in Hyderabad recently.“The absence of a physiotherapy council has made difficult for colleges to get recognised. For instance, Bachelors of Physiotherapy is recognised by the Indian Association of Physiotherapy but courses like Masters in Physiotherapy has no recognition. The absence of recognition is a stumbling block for those aspiring for posts in government and private health sectors,” said federation president Satish. Mr. Hari Krishna said that physiotherapy has emerged as a important rehabilitative medicine and is connected with neurology, orthopaedics and paediatrics etc.Federation convener N. Rajesh Roshan said that sports physiotherapy was now an emerging and popular field and was in high demand. Physiotherapy councils are in place in Delhi, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra and Gujarat. A council is being formed in Telangana also.-Update by Physiotherapy Jobs Portal

3.  '6 out of 100 suffer from rheumatic diseases': Rheumatolgist Dr Saurabh Malviya pointed out that people often consume painkillers to treat swelling and get rid of backache, which is not advisable by doctors. "About 50-60 patients visit OPD everyday. It is very easy to treat rheumatic disease given the condition that they are treated on time. The medicines and physiotherapy have proved to be very effective. In case of complications, surgery is performed to treat the problem. If the disease is not treated on time, it can affect other body parts like kidney, liver and lungs," added Dr Malviya.-Update by Physiotherapy Jobs Portal

World Health Day April 07 2016

World Health Day April 07

World Health Organization (WHO): Goal of World Health Day 2016: Scale up diabetes prevention, strengthen care, and enhance surveillance.

More and more people are getting diabetes around the world. The increase is in great part driven by rising levels of overweight and obesity and physical inactivity, including among children.

About 422 million people worldwide have diabetes, a number likely to more than double in the next 20 years.

In 2012, diabetes was the direct cause of 1.5 million deaths. More than 80% of diabetes deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries.

Type 2 accounts for around 90% of all diabetes worldwide. Reports of type 2 diabetes in children have increased worldwide.

A healthy diet high in fruits and vegetables and low in sugar and saturated fats can help prevent Type 2 diabetes, and also help people to manage Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes if they have it.

Being physically active – through at least 30 minutes of regular, moderate-intensity activity on most days – can help prevent Type 2 diabetes and its complications, as well as help people to better manage Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes if they have it.

Symptoms for diabetes include thirst, hunger, weight loss, fatigue and blurred vision. However, many people who have diabetes do not have symptoms. If people think they might have the disease, consulting a health-care professional is recommended.

A range of treatments exists to manage diabetes and control blood glucose, including through eating healthy, being active, taking prescribed medication, controlling blood pressure, and avoiding tobacco use. People with diabetes can live well if they follow a treatment plan developed together with their health-care provider.
