The Pelvic Health Podcast Tidbit Tuesday – Antony Lo on Test-Retest


The Home Page of The Pelvic Health Podcast With Antony Lo and Lori FornerI thought it would be a good idea to get from the awesome people in pelvic health that we interview some tidbits and clinical throwaways for people to implement immediately.

Short in duration for maximum impact and accessibility, these tidbit Tuesdays will hopefully give clinicians some ideas to try as well as discuss in the pelvic health world.

Today's podcast, I talk about test-retest. This is a passion of mine because it has changed my practice significantly. Being able to test the cues we use in function, not just a pelvic floor or core contraction is a useful tool.

So the "test" is the automatic sequence that the patient currently does. How are their symptoms? You can monitor internally or externally. THEN you give your cue for the pelvic floor or core and "retest". Ideally the best cue is the one that leads to the best results without bearing down on the pelvic floor or poor motor patterns.


So sit back, enjoy the podcast, and give one of these clinical tidbits a go!

Below the podcast is the description Lori has provided...make sure you subscribe to The Pelvic Health Podcast on iTunes or Soundcloud or Stitcher.

So Antony came up with a great idea! Small, bite-size podcasts on practical or useful information you can test out or use in your clinical reasoning straight away.

We are hoping to keep these segments 10 minutes or less and have them out every Tuesday. The tips will come from ourselves, as well as from the amazing experts we interview.

I won't be writing a blog post for each one so you should subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and you won't miss them as they automatically upload.

To subscribe, if you have already downloaded the podcast on iTunes, just click on the little round, squiggly thing meant to be some "tool" I suppose. Then you can change a setting to "subscribed". If you have not yet downloaded it on iTunes, search for our name and then there is a big button that says "Subscribe".

The episdoes are available in iTunes, Stitcher and Soundcloud (click on the underlined word and you will be taken to where you need to be)

Also, we would love for you to leave us a review. This process is easy but less user-friendly. Even if you have subscribed and/or downloaded the podcast, you have to enter in the podcast name into the "search" field again. Once it comes up, there is a "reviews" section. Click on that and then at the bottom there is "write a review" to click on.

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.

Thanks for listening!!
