In this week’s episode we talk to Abigail’s Physical Therapist, Dr. Kaite Davenport. Katie specializes in dysfunction and disorders of the Temporomandibular Joint and pelvic floor. She is also certified in Trigger Point Dry Needling. If you are feeling a little clueless about what all this means, you are not alone. The good news is that Katie talks to us about pelvic floor health, its connection to the jaw and why all this matters. All the information that Katie shares with us is definitely not isn’t commonly talked about and that’s exactly why we had her on the show. Even better, she tells us what we need to look for and how we can find a PT like her to help us reach optimal health.
