I just returned to Los Angeles after completing an amazing eight day trip to Beijing, China. There I had the opportunity to work with the Chinese Olympic Committee,their rehabilitation staff and athletes. I gave two lectures with hands-on labs to their physiotherapists on Hip Impingement and Cyclist's Syndrome (Pudendal neuralgia in cyclists). Did I talk about the pelvic floor muscles in both lectures? You bet I did! Monica is my awesome Mandarin translator pictured standing next to me below.

One thing I learned is that the training of physical therapists in the US and the training in China is very different. And I am not just referring to my discussions on pelvic health. This collaboration with physical therapists from the United States is an effort to elevate the care elite athletes are receving.

As I know the value of a "pelvic floor physical therapist" in the big picture of optimizing an athlete's care, I introduced concepts of training this muscle group in preparation for initiation of the desired movment with the larger muscle groups. Coordination and timing are EVERYTHING, and it all starts with the pelvic floor. In discussions of Cyclist's Syndrome, I provided the staff with practical education and manual techniques that could be performed externally should an athlete present it's the signs of symptoms.

I also had the opportunity to work with many of the olympic athletes and olympic hopefuls during my stay. Below is me with Ban Ban Yang, point guard for the Chinese national basketball team. You can check out more photos of me with the athletes on my instagram feed @TheLadyPartsPT.

And here is me getting away for one day to walk the Great Wall. Honestly I was so deconditioned I'm still sore 4 days later, but I am proud that I made it all the way to the top at Mutianyu (in the pouring rain, no less!). Thankful for the rain, as it clearly kept the crowds away.

      I just wanted to thank you for everything you've done for me for the past 19 months. I literally could not have reached my goals without you and your practice. You gave me the courage to keep moving forth with my treatment no matter how afraid and anxious I was. You were always there to answer questions and made this whole process so much easier than I expected it to be. It's because of you that my marriage is on the right track, that I can get pregnant and that this part of my life is finally...

      "I had a severe tear during childbirth that was not stitched together correctly and therefore healed poorly. Even after having a surgery a year later to remove the scar tissue, I was still having pain, and no one could explain why -- there was no overt 'reason' to explain the pain. I had tried other 'specialists' and even saw another physical therapist who had me do hip / leg stretches -- what a joke! I was about to give up and just 'live with it' until thankfully I kept searching online and...
