We would like to give out a big shout out to one of our very own Section on Women’s Health members, Vicki Lukert PT, PRPC, who has been featured recently in an interview for the Move Forward PT radio podcast:
Pregnant and Postpartum Exercise
Because pregnancy is a core element of the life cycle, it´s easy to take for granted. A woman becomes pregnant, gestates the developing child for approximately 9 months, gives birth and then moves into motherhood. But the naturalness of pregnancy can cause even the most of athletic of mothers to overlook the inherent physical trauma involved.
In this episode of Move Forward Radio, physical therapists Christy Martin, PT, DPT, SCS, who specializes in sports physical therapy, and Vicki Lukert, PT, PRPC, who specializes in pelvic health, outline how pregnant and postpartum women can exercise safely, and how to spot warning signs for problems that might require medical attention.
Vicki Lukert, PT, PRPC is a certified Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner, and her areas of expertise include women´s and men´s pelvic health, pregnancy and post-partum dysfunction, pelvic and abdominal pain (including dysmenorrhea and dyspareunia), colorectal dysfunction, fecal and urinary incontinence, endometriosis, infertility, coccygodynia, temperomandibular joint dysfunction, and headaches.
