Optim Health Therapy Savannah

The following is one of a series of weekly guest posts for SouthernMamas.com by Stacey McKenzie, Physical Therapist
Optim Therapy in Savannah
Pelvic Health & Wellness Program

See more of these guest posts here.

Are you having pelvic pain?  Urinary incontinence? Overactive bladder?  All of the above? These symptoms could be related to your pelvic floor muscles, which are basically a bowl-shaped set of muscles that support your bladder, bowel, rectum and uterus.

The good news is that physical therapy could be the answer. Yes, that’s right.  There are physical therapists who specialize in treating the pelvic floor and I’m proud to be one.

At Optim Therapy’s Pelvic Health & Wellness Program, our goal is to provide a comfortable environment with excellent treatment programs individualized to make sure you receive the most from each of your visits.

At your first visit, I’ll meet with you for an evaluation in a private, closed-door environment. We’ll talk one-on-one and go over all your treatment options.

Although pelvic conditions are not life-threatening, they can have a huge impact on your quality of life. Our approach to patient care is to achieve the highest possible outcomes for you. Treatments may include:

• Manual and soft tissue techniques

• Education on proper contraction of pelvic floor muscles, posture, body mechanics, positioning, and more

• Strengthening and stretching exercises

• Techniques and modalities for pain relief

• Biofeedback

__________________________________________________

Optim Therapy recently launched their Pelvic Health & Wellness Program and Physical Therapist Stacey McKenzie can work with you one-on-one to make sure you are successfully activating your pelvic floor.  It can be accomplished in as little as one visit.

Stacey is one of Optim Therapy’s dedicated therapy professionals, all of whom utilize a multi-disciplinary approach to providing patients with the best treatments and outcomes. She earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Armstrong Atlantic State University and says that the most rewarding aspect of being a therapist is making people feel and move better.

If you are interested in improving your pelvic health, please talk to your personal physician about a referral to physical therapy. If you have any questions, or need help with a referral, feel free to contact Stacey directly at smckenzie@optimhealth.com(912) 644-5333.

CrossFit Hyperformance in Savannah guest post on improving sleep routines

Thursday, August 16th, 2018

Crossfit savannah hyperformance

Below is a guest post from CrossFit Hyperformance in Savannah:

What’s your Sleep Routine?

This month at Hyperformance Kids we’re showing off our sleep routines! We’re talking about the benefits of a good night sleep and how having a routine can help. The better you sleep the better you feel.

Sleep is also imperative to maximize learning. Our brains processes both new physical tasks (like coordination) and information during sleep. Your body’s recovery processes and growth hormone release are heightened during deeper stages of sleep.

Here are some tips to try:

1.) Cut off overhead lights at dusk. As it gets darker outside, cut back on the brightness inside too. It signals their bodies to start winding down. My boys love lighting candles and dimming the lights.

2.) Cut off devices and screens at least 30 minutes before bedtime. In the summertime I like to take a walk outside in the natural changing light with my boys. They are also less tempted to go back to the screen.

3.) Reflect. Our family has “couch time”. Each person gets a minute to talk about the best part of their day. It forces us to stop what we are doing and just be together for a couple of precious minutes.

4.) Prep the next day. Not just laying out clothes and making lunch, but ask your kids what they are looking forward to the next day. They will start to connect the things they want to do with a desire to feel ready and well-rested for it.

Of course, lots of exercise and time outdoors during the day helps too! And nothing is wrong with a little power nap from time to time either.

Pelvic Health & Wellness Program

Summertime for moms often means family vacations. It should be an exciting time, getting in the car, setting the GPS and heading out for a fun-in-the-sun getaway.

Unfortunately for many women, any trip longer than around the block can be a journey filled with calculated pit stops including some seedy gas station bathrooms and a few close calls.

If you’re dreading a road trip because you suffer from urinary incontinence or an overactive bladder, the good news is that physical therapy could be the answer. Yes, that’s right. There are physical therapists who specialize in treating the pelvic floor muscles, which support your bladder, bowel, rectum and uterus. The pelvic floor is very important and plays a key role in urinary continence, core stability, and sexual health.

Optim Therapy recently launched their Pelvic Health & Wellness Program and Physical Therapist Stacey McKenzie can work with you one-on-one to make sure you are successfully activating your pelvic floor.  It can be accomplished in as little as one visit.

Pelvic Health & Wellness Program

Imagine if your shoulder and arm muscles were weak and you couldn’t lift or hold your child. You would do something about that, right?

Now, what if weak muscles caused you to leak urine when you run, laugh, cough or sneeze? This could mean you need to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, which are a group of muscles that support your bladder, bowel, rectum and uterus. Just like your other muscles, you need to work on getting them stronger. As a physical therapist specializing in pelvic floor therapy, I can assess your pelvic floor muscles and make sure you are firing them correctly.

At your first visit, I’ll meet with you for an evaluation in a private, closed-door environment. We’ll talk one-on-one and go over all your treatment options.

At Optim Therapy’s Pelvic Health & Wellness Program, our goal is to provide a comfortable environment with individualized treatment programs to make sure you receive the most from each of your visits.

Now is the time to address your urinary incontinence because, unfortunately, this problem can get worse. As we age, our ligaments, tendons, and muscles get weaker.

If you are interested in improving your pelvic health, please talk to your personal physician about a referral to physical therapy. If you have any questions, or need help with a referral, please feel free to contact me directly: Stacey McKenzie, , (912) 644-5333.

Crossfit Hyperformance Summer Kids’ Classes, Savannah

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

CrossFit Savannah Kids

Below is a guest post from CrossFit Hyperformance in Savannah:

Let’s Jump!

All kids love to jump – up, down, and sideways. (Maybe off of something we as a parents would wish they wouldn’t).

Did you know that when it comes to skeletal development jumping is very important? Actually, the landing is even more important. When you land, a wave of impact is sent through the skeleton that signals bone cells to lay down more mineral deposit making them denser. Bones react according to the forces put on them.

Between the ages of 12-14 years old bone density is increasing at its fastest. That is a huge window of opportunity for pre-pubescent children to have a positive effect that will linger well into adulthood. To get the most benefit, the speed of loading (such as in jumping or bounding) is more important than slow or static loading (standing, walking, weightlifting). We call this rapid force changing impact loading – and it’s a part of every Crossfit Kids class. No external load needed; these activities are self-scaled by ability to reduce the risk of injury.

Impact loading activities are a priority for all age groups within Hyperformance Youth programs, for the benefits they provide the growing skeleton as well as the improvements they bring about in such physical skills as power, speed, and strength.
