Product information Fitness for the Pelvic Floor

"Although it is common to exercise many parts of the body to stay fit, very little attention is paid to exercising the pelvic floor. Perhaps we can prevent ending our lives in diapers if we devote some time to keeping the pelvic floor muscles fit." The Authors

Pelvic floor disorders affect some 200 million people worldwide and can cause debilitating symptoms in men, women, and children.

For over 17 years, Fitness for the Pelvic Floor has been an essential guide for physical therapists and patients alike, with its practical approach to navigating pelvic floor dysfunction.

The 2nd edition features new concepts for clinical applications by renowned physical therapist, Beate Carrière, and significantly benefits from contributions by co-author Dawn-Marie Ickes, an expert in integrative health and wellness, who adds new topics targeted at physical therapy students.

Key highlights:

  • Clinical pearls that aid therapists in their evaluation of pelvic floor disorders
  • Anatomical and physiological content as well as definitions of essential terminology
  • Easy-to-follow exercise routines that focus on activating and/or relaxing pelvic floor muscles
  • Over 50 instructive videos depicting various breathing and corrective functional exercises that have proven to be the most efficacious treatment methods for many patients

 

This is an essential resource for physical therapy professionals, patients seeking to reduce or eliminate symptoms of urinary urgency or pain in the lower abdomen and pelvic cavity, as well as individuals looking to improve their overall pelvic health.

What is an e-book?

An e-book is an electronic edition of a printed book that is available as a file. The content does not differ from the printed edition of the book. Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats. For both formats, you need software to display the documents on your reading device. This software is not part of the e-book download.

What is the PDF format?
Adobe PDF format (Portable Document Format) is a standard format in MAC/PC area. Free programs for reading a PDF are available for all common operating systems (e.g. Windows, Mac OS, Linux) and for almost all e-book readers such as e-book readers, tablets or smartphones.

What is the EPUB format?
EPUB (electronic publication) is a standard format for e-books that enables dynamic adaptation of the text to the size of the display device. It is particularly well suited for displaying e-books on tablet PCs, smartphones, and e-book readers.
EPUBs can also be easily displayed on MACs/PCs via the free ADE (Adobe Digital Editions) software, for example.

Is an Internet connection required to read an e-book?
An Internet connection is required only to download the e-book to the reader. Once the download is complete, you can view and read the e-book without an Internet connection.

Are e-books copy-protected?
E-books from Thieme Publishing Group are provided with DRM (Digital Rights Management) protection from Vitalsource

On how many devices can I read the e-book?
You can read an e-book on up to six different (mobile) devices. These devices must be authorized with the same Adobe ID.

Can I exchange/return an e-book?
E-books are products that are not suitable for return due to their nature. Just like downloads of other electronic files (movies, music or software), e-books are excluded from the right of withdrawal. A return or exchange is therefore not possible.
