Canadian physiotherapist Kelli Berzuk, PT, has just published, through the assistance of Nova Physiotherapy & Sports Fitness Clinic, a serious and thorough treatise on pelvic floor health and rehabilitation with her first book, I Laughed So Hard I Peed My Pants! (2002). The author lends extraordinary warmth and insight to discussing the value of the pelvic floor muscle functionality – sphincteric, supportive, and sexual – so that women of all ages can be motivated to protect and strengthen this essential element of their health. When a 30-second explanation of how to properly "do a Kegel" isn't enough, – and for the majority of all women it isn't enough – this is the handbook to have for encouragement and instruction. In understanding what the pelvic floor was designed to do, Kelli Berzuk's book allows women to better grasp how to keep the pelvic floor muscles functional. There is ample coverage on relaxation techniques, toileting posture, urge delay techniques, and much more.
