Pelvic floor myth busting with physiotherapist Taryn Hallam

THE Taryn Hallam (physiotherapist, educator and WHTA founder) joins the podcast in this episode to bust some big myths about pelvic floor dysfunction.

Myths she addresses include:

  • The Oxford scale as a measure of PFM strength
  • Levator ani muscle function as a major factor in stress urinary incontinence
  • Detrusor overactivity and overactive bladder as the same thing
  • Caffeine as a major bladder irritant
  •  Relaxin as the cause of ligament laxity in pregnancy
  • Are crunches bad for the pelvic floor?

And more!

For those of you who don't know Taryn Hallam, she is one of the most brilliant women we know. Not only does she run the most comprehensive education on the pelvic floor in Australia through WHTA, she now travels world-wide and online to share this. The annual research updates are insanely popular and not to be missed. (No, this is not an ad or paid).

Hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did.
