Did I say the pelvic floor has something to do with your neck and throat? Crazy talk? No. You have to listen to this. It is not airy fairy crap. This info is my ultimate musculoskeletal-women's health combination I think everyone needs to hear.

Susan Clinton, DPT, woke up bright and early in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to join Antony and I in Australia. Whilst she drank caffeine, I had red wine. We had such good time, we had to break this podcast up into two parts!

Susan discusses her background in neurological physiotherapy, musculoskeletal physiotherapy, how she got into pelvic floor work and how she combined them all to drop knowledge bombs.

We delve into the diaphragm, the glottis, intra-abdominal pressure, breathing, swallowing, vagus nerve, trigeminal alarm system, pelvic pain and how forward head posture and cervicothoracic stiffness affect the pelvic floor.


Future podcast ideas are discussed but as always, don't forget to send your questions or topics into either Antony or myself, as well as subscribe to the podcast and leave us a review in iTunes.
