Free pelvic floor strengthening classes open to community

Approximately one-third of women in the U.S. suffer from a pelvic floor disorder, a condition caused by the weakening of the pelvic muscles. Providing support and solutions, Fyzical Therapy and Balance Centers has partnered with the National Association for Continence to offer the community free pelvic floor strengthening classes: “Be Strong: Building Strength from the Inside Out!” on Saturday, Oct. 28 and Thursday, Nov. 2.

The informative pelvic health seminars will take place Oct. 28 from 10 to 11 a.m. at Fyzical’s Fort Myers location at 13010 Metro Parkway, and on Nov. 2 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Fyzical’s Bonita Springs location at 25241 Elementary Way, Suite 200. While the event is free and open to the public, an RSVP is requested to attend the event by emailing PelvicHealth@fyzicalswfl.com or calling 1-833-783-4778 (PTFIRST).

A nationally recognized expert on pelvic health, Dr. Cindy Neville, PT, DPT, WCS, director of pelvic health and wellness for Fyzical Therapy and Balance Centers, will host the seminars and provide education on the anatomy of the pelvic floor, also teaching the proper moves for building and maintaining strength for optimal pelvic floor health.

“At some point in life, often after giving birth or as we age, women are likely to experience incontinence or some form of pelvic disorder throughout their lifetime,” said Neville. “During our free seminar, I’ll be teaching the proper moves for building and maintaining pelvic strength in a supportive and comfortable environment. I’m looking forward to addressing questions and empowering attendees to improve their overall wellbeing.”

A board-certified Women’s Health Certified Specialist by the American Physical Therapy Association and a published author, Neville provides outpatient clinical services at Fyzical’s Bonita Springs location, servicing women and men with pelvic floor disorders such as urinary incontinence, constipation and pelvic pain, and women with musculoskeletal impairments related to pregnancy and childbearing. In addition to authoring and co-authoring several published works, Neville also serves as clinical faculty at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville and an online instructor for MedBridge Education and PhysicalTherapy.com, teaching classes in functional anatomy of the pelvis and pelvic floor, and topics in pelvic health physical therapy.
