Pelvic Health and Living with Parkinson's
with Michelle Spicka, DPT
Tuesday, September 20, 2022
12 pm MDT (11 am PDT, 1 pm CDT, 2 pm EDT)
Many people living with Parkinson's have trouble with bladder overactivity that causes urinary urgency, frequency, and incontinence (unintentional leaking). Weak voiding and constipation are two other symptoms that have a significant impact on someone's ability to live well. In this webinar, Michelle Spicka will talk about the causes of pelvic floor dysfunction, how non-motor symptoms related to the pelvic floor may show up for you, and how to gain control of your pelvic floor so you can manage and mitigate some of your symptoms.
