The Pelvic Floor – Bringing Research into Practice Presentation:

The presentation was conducted as an interactive workshop at the 2008 APMA National Conference. Melinda will present theoretical suggestions of pelvic floor muscle function and relate this to current research findings, common beliefs and practices. Melinda will share results from her research on pelvic floor muscle function in women with and without symptoms of incontinence or prolapse. She will lead the participants to incorporate this knowledge into their practice of the Pilates Method. Case studies will be introduced as an avenue of transferring the knowledge to situations that are relevant to the participants
