Specialist Chartered Physiotherapist in Women’s Health & Continence, Maeve Whelan will be marking World Physical Therapy Day on September 8th 2014 with a Master Class titled Where’s My Pelvic Floor?!

The title of this year’s World Physical Therapy day is “Fit to Take Part” and women throughout the world lose out because they are not fit to take part with one in four women suffering from pelvic pain and one in three women suffering from pelvic floor dysfunction including pelvic organ prolapse, bladder or bowel control problems. Possibly not surprising with those statistics, fifty percent of women contract their muscles the wrong way. Further studies report a prevalence of sexual difficulties in up to 50% of women worldwide. The Where’s My Pelvic Floor?! Masterclass combines the need to educate women to look after their pelvic floor and at the same time raising funds for Deirdre Holland who tragically lost both lower legs through a rare strain (“Y”) of meningococcal septicemia in April 2013 and is currently in the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Dun Laoghaire learning to walk again. This class is for all women who would like to learn more about their pelvic floor. Registration is online at www.deirdreholland-recoveryfund.com/upcoming-events/ Further classes take place throughout September.
