Jane Blair Johe is Our Featured Practitioner!

Congratulations to Jane Blair Johe, PT, PRPC on becoming one of the newest Certified Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioners! Read our interview with Blair below.

Tell us about your clinical practice
I work in a free standing outpatient PT center of a large 4 hospital affiliation. 70% lymphedema 30% pelvic floor rehab.

How did you get involved in the pelvic rehabilitation field?
I was already the lymphedema PT (LANA cert.) when I moved to WV. The women's health PT was moving to another state and asked me to please pick up her bladder incontinence patients.

What patient population do you find most rewarding in treating and why?
I do like pelvic pain clients as I can work with other PT’s on staff to problem solve . Both patients and their doctors are so grateful.

If you could get a message out to physical therapists about pelvic rehabilitation what would it be?
That you cannot ignore a very important group of muscles (PF) whether you are treating backs, hips etc. or pain and weakness or balance issues…. it plays such a vital role in wellbeing. Any of these clients should be questioned about bowel and bladder issues.

What has been your favorite Herman & Wallace Course and why?
I took my first course from them in September and was so impressed (compared to other courses)

What lesson have you learned from a Herman & Wallace instructor that has stayed with you?
the PT pelvic floor assessment. Correct postures , breathing and “safe” effort of bowel movements.

What do you find is the most useful resource for your practice?
MedBridge Courses

What motivated you to earn PRPC?
If I only had one pelvic floor referral, I would like to give the best service possible to that client. My referring MD’s are very happy too.

What makes you the most proud to have earned PRPC?
I thought it was a many faceted subject and combined many aspects of my 45 years of physical therapy practice. It made me feel that I do know my profession that I love.

What advice would you give to physical therapists interested in earning PRPC?
Have a broad back ground in multiple areas of PT then I highly recommend Herman and Wallace courses as the best path.

What is in store for you in the future?
A urologist in town contacted me today to set up referring for pre surgery PT (prostate surgery).
