In our weekly feature section, Pelvic Rehab Report is proud to present this interview with newly certified practitioner Marci Marshall, PT, PRPC
If you could get a message out to physical therapists about pelvic rehabilitation what would it be?
Thinking “out of the box”…I always say to my patients that there are many pieces to a puzzle and we just have to find the right pieces to fit together for them to be on the path to healing. I believe that pelvic rehabilitation requires a multidisciplinary approach. There are many complementary services; such as, dry needling, visceral therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture, mindfulness meditation and yoga that need to be considered. Be open to try something new and to explore as many avenues as feasible. It is so important to give patients back some control in their lives in a positive and empowering manner.
What has been your favorite Herman & Wallace Course and why?
Myofascial Release for Pelvic Dysfunction taught by Ramona Horton, MPT. Her techniques helped to further refine my ability to load tissue in multiple planes and allow the tissue to direct me to the restrictions both externally and internally. I found that my fingers could be “softer” and I just needed to “feel & follow” to be just as effective! She provided me with a new tool to put in my tool bag! She is a very captivating instructor and provides a wealth of information!
