“Squats vs Kegels- Can we all just work together?”
That is the magic question these days. Join us for our January meeting as Marie Woerner, PT, DPT shares with us exactly what we should know about squats, kegels & your pelvic floor.
Marie Woerner, PT, DPT, is one of the few physical therapists in Tarrant County who treats pelvic problems in both men and women. She and Charles Nichols, DPT, are the new physical therapists at the Alliance Clinic in north Fort Worth/Keller. Nichols has extensive experience in orthopedic therapy, especially spine rehabilitation and sports therapy.
Woerner specializes in women’s health, including care during pregnancy and postpartum; and fibromyalgia, osteoporosis and lymphedema. She also uses a biofeedback unit for some patients, to allow them “to see and monitor what their pelvic floor muscles are doing with specific tasks.” The patient is connected to this unit with surface EMG electrodes, and can move around freely with the machine in place. She also treats patients with general orthopedic conditions ranging from low back pain to post-surgical issues.
