    Do you suffer from bowel, bladder, sexual health or pain related issues? If so, you will want to attend RiverView Health’s Oct. 26 health luncheon on pelvic floor dysfunctions and rehabilitation.

    “Pelvic Floor Disorders and Therapies’’ will address the very important pelvic floor muscles that give you control over release of urine, feces, and flatus, among other things. The pelvic floor is the sling of muscles, ligaments, and nerves that run from your tailbone to your pubic bone.  The pelvic floor functions to support the pelvis and pelvic organs, control bladder and bowel release, stabilize and mobilize the pelvic organs (the bladder and bowel in men and the bladder, bowel and uterus in women), and assist in sexual processes.

    Those who suffer with pelvic floor dysfunctions often deal with incontinence, constipation, Irritable Bowel Syndrome or hemorrhoids. They may also experience pain in their lower back, tailbone, hip or genital area.

     Help is available for those who suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction. Attend the noon luncheon to hear RiverView Physical Therapist Lindsey Ebertowski, DPT, explain pelvic rehabilitation. Ebertowski offers pelvic floor therapies in RiverView Clinics in Crookston and East Grand Forks. At the luncheon, she will share information on treatments ranging from exercise, manual therapies, behavioral strategies, education and functional retraining.

    The luncheon will be held in Meeting Room #1 of RiverView Health in Crookston.     

    All men and women interested in improving their health are invited to attend. Each luncheon starts a few minutes past noon and luncheons are kept under one hour so those needing to return to work can attend. Pre-registration is required. A boxed lunch can be purchased for $3, but must be ordered while pre-registering for the event. Call Holly Anderson at 281-9745 for additional information and to pre-register.
