Physical Therapy for Pelvic Pain
Interstitial Cystitis Support & Education Meeting
Many people with interstitial cystitis are turning to physical therapy to ease pelvic pain and bladder symptoms.

At Urology San Antonio’s upcoming IC Support & Education Meeting, pelvic floor physical therapist Carissa Pool Parish will join nurse practitioner Peggy Francis to explain the techniques physical therapists use to relax and lengthen tight pelvic floor muscles and release trigger points.

Carissa will describe the pelvic floor anatomy, a typical assessment and treatment plan and stretches and exercises to do at home to improve pelvic pain and bladder, bowel or sexual dysfunction. 

Then we will open the floor for your questions and insights about pelvic floor physical therapy and any IC-related topics such as diet, exercise, pain relief, alternative therapies, medical treatments, clinical research, advocacy and sexuality. We know you will benefit from the information and the opportunity to network with others with IC. 

AUDIENCE:         Individuals diagnosed with interstitial cystitis or chronic pelvic pain or those experiencing symptoms.
Spouses/guests are welcome accompany attendees.

Exercises for Bladder Control
Us Too Prostate Cancer Education & Support Meeting
Having a fit pelvic floor can help men who've had prostate cancer improve their urinary function and quality of life.

Carissa Pool Parish, a physical therapist who focuses on the pelvic floor, will teach us about the exercises that men can do before and after prostate cancer treatment to minimize bladder leakage.

Carissa will help us understand the anatomy of the pelvic floor and the functions of the different muscles found there. Then she'll explain how prostate cancer treatment affects the muscles and how to correctly identify and exercise them.

She'll review what you should be doing on your own and when you might want to enlist the expertise of a physical therapist. She’ll also describe the results you can expect from your efforts.
