Facebook LIVE with Ignite Wellness: prevention vs. reaction

On Wednesday, October 31st, Dr. Nazari spoke with Ignite Wellness on prevention vs. reaction as it pertains to pelvic floor health.

“Sometimes we wait for crisis to hit before we take action. For example, you have lingering back pain that comes and goes and you try out yoga classes to help. However, the pain never really goes away. Then one day, you’re bending over to help your son with homework, and all of a sudden you can’t move. Crisis has hit. Now you are forced to react and make choices when you are in an anxious state, just to survive. Usually in this situation, the choices are not desirable, and you have limited options.

How can you avoid this scenario? By working on prevention techniques. What might these be, you ask?” Take a look at the recorded version of the conversation to learn more about the answer.
