In this episode, I sit down with fellow physiotherapy clinician, researcher and educator, Katie Kelly to discuss:

  • Similarities in acute care needs between limb surgery and cesarean birth
  • How can abdominal compression support help after c-section
  • What does the research tell us about compression after cesarean birth?
  • People are looking for a black/white answer “is it good or bad”?
  • Do you recommend people talk to OBGYN before using?
  • When is it recommended to start use?
  • Recommendations for type of band/compression
  • Suggestions for how long in the day and how to know when to discontinue
  • Suggestions to mediate recovery other than compression

Following graduation in 2010, Katie completed her first post-graduate pelvic health course in 2011 and has been treating pelvic floor patients ever since. She is happy to work with a variety of patients – women, men, transgendered and non-binary people, of all ages with a range of pelvic floor conditions. Katie opened her own practise in 2017, and expanded to her co-owned multidisciplinary clinic at Reconnect Health Centre in Moncton, New Brunswick in 2020. Katie is often a guest lecturer for the School of Physiotherapy at Dalhousie University, with a focused knowledge on pregnancy, and pelvic health. She is an active contributing author to the Canadian Physiotherapy Association’s Women’s Health Division Newsletter. Katie has formed a relationship with Mount Allison University’s Sexual Health Laboratory to research chronic pelvic and genital pain conditions. She has developed coursework for Cesarean section rehabilitation that is available through Embodia Academy and Uro-sante. She has also created The Vulvar Image Collection, a collection of photographs of vulvas of varying ages, sizes and skin tones, undergoing vaginal exams. These images are for purchase and used in lecture for anatomical learning, and for graded imagery exposure in patient assessment and treatment. Katie received both her BSc and MSc in Physiotherapy from Dalhousie University, is a member of the New Brunswick College of Physiotherapists, the Canadian Physiotherapy Association’s Women’s Health Division, the Canadian Sex Researcher Forum and the Canadian Obesity Network. Her latest goal is to help expand the knowledge of her peers.
