Dr. Merci Ortenzi Treaster has a lifetime of women’s health education. Joining her mother when treating women’s issues, Dr. Treaster discovered that the physical therapy aspect of women’s health was lacking.

Weakened pelvic floor muscles can be aided by proper breathing. The pelvic floor should relax on the inhale and contract on the exhale.
Dr. Treaster also recommends posture correction. Focus on achieving a neutral pelvis in daily activities.
