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.

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.

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.

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.

Stacey McKenzie 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.

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.

Guest Post by Jennifer McKenzie, owner of Crossfit Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah

It’s called Exercise Deficit Disorder.

And it’s a problem, especially for our children.

Changes in our lifestyle over the last few generations (consuming more high calorie, low nutrient food and moving less) are the primary cause of increased obesity rates in our kids. It’s far more than genetic. And it’s not slowing down anytime soon.

Sedentary behavior is contributing to the decline of health indicators in children and adults, with behavior patterns beginning to emerge as soon as age 6 and worsening into adulthood. The shift in activity pattern has now been coined “Exercise Deficit Disorder”. We believe that being healthy is more than having good physical markers. It’s also having the ability to learn new things, focus, control emotions, make friends, and feel generally happy. As parents, we want our kids to be healthy in mind and body.

The youth program at  Crossfit Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah specifically addresses these issues. As a Crossfit Kids Affiliate, “The program is comprised of elements designed to reduce Exercise Deficit Disorder and poor lifestyle choices: laying the foundational movement patterns, providing children with a portion of the prescribed amount of exercise for the week, improving muscular and cardiovascular fitness, discussing the roles of food, and providing endless opportunities for success – all while keeping the class and it’s information fun and engaging.” From Crossfit Kids Training Guide.

The purpose of the Hyperformance Youth program is to attack the prevalence of Exercise Deficit Disorder. Classes for rising 1st through 5th grade students happen every Wednesday at 3:30PM and Saturday at 10:15AM.

Join Crossfit Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah for a free trial class today.  Email jen@crossfithp.com or call 912-335-3615.
