Prolapse Awareness & Management for Fitness Professionals

5th May 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


About the Study Day:

Over 40% of over 50s experience pelvic organ prolapse, and childbirth increases a woman’s risk 11-fold, yet it’s another women’s subject that’s stuck in the 1950s – just not talked about enough! This course aims to bust myths, explore the latest research, explain anatomy and give some practical guidance on how to identify those clients who might be suffering. With fascinating theory that extends way beyond the pelvis, up and coming techniques like Hypopressives, pessaries and practical adaptations to your exercises, this study day will give you the knowledge to support your clients both in your sessions, and in their daily lives.

About Kathryn Peden:

Kathryn Priest found her passion for physiotherapy after working in corporate training, photography, and social care and health for a number of years. Having worked with older people, she developed a passion not just for rehabilitating people with a wide range of injuries, but for encouraging knowledge and interest in the human body and promoting wellness for life.

This has come to the fore even further with her specialism – Women’s Health Physiotherapy. Determined to tackle society’s mantra to women’s troubles – “That’s just being a mum” – she helps women both pre and post natal understand their own bodies, why they are in pain or having issues with their bladder, tummy or back, and guiding them down the road to full post-natal recovery, putting the woman first and securing knowledge for future pregnancies. Kathryn also works with ladies who don’t have children but still encounter specifically female issues, perhaps with painful sex, post-surgery scars or rehabilitation, or urinary leakage on activity.

Kathryn does public speaking on a range of physical health topics such as posture, wellbeing and post natal education, and is a contributor to the Henpicked: Wisdom for Women website, as well as regularly writing her own blogs. She has recently published a book to help women tackle and manage their menopause.
