Newly Appointed PPSIG Director

We are delighted to welcome our newest PPSIG Director Kristi Kliebert, to the Academy of Pelvic Health Physical Therapy!

Since then, she has earned her CAPP-OB Certificate, Prenatal Yoga Certification and completed a Birth Doula course. She is currently building an Outpatient Obstetric Physical Therapy Program for Sarasota Memorial Hospital. 

She enjoys volunteering for the Academy of Pelvic Health as the Lead Reviewer for the CAPP-OB Case Review Committee and is the Southeast Regional Representative for the Membership Committee.

      The Role Of Trauma In Chronic Pain: Maximizing Our Skill Set For Mind-Body Healing

      Sign up today for the The Role Of Trauma In Chronic Pain: Maximizing Our Skill Set For Mind-Body Healing

      This 3.5 hour online, pre-recorded course examines the literature on Autonomic nervous system response to trauma and the parallels between trauma (PTSD, abuse, ACE scores) and chronic pain and then goes a step further to look at a multi-dimensional treatment approach through manual, exercise, breathing and the actual anatomic mechanics that make this approach successful. It is evidence-based and the instructor incorporates a newer concept of heart rate variability into the conversation. With the stress on PNE/TPE, we can do better than tell people to breath and walk. This course examines how we do this well and why we, as Physical Therapists (PTs), are the best suited for this role.

      Media Echoes Profession's Call for More Physical Activity

      National Physical Therapy Month may be drawing to a close, but that's no reason to ease up on promoting the importance of physical activity.  It's a message that APTA will be emphasizing throughout our centennial year in 2021 — and one that PTs, PTAs, and physical therapy students are uniquely positioned to deliver as movement experts.

      Even better, we're not alone in delivering it. Here's a roundup of recent coverage of physical activity in the media.
