Kegels Aren't The Only Answer to Pelvic Floor Problems: With Flyte Therapy
In this episode, Kaitlin McGreyes, founder of Be Her Village talks with Shravya Kovela, pelvic floor PT and business development manager for Flyte by Pelvital.
We’ve said it before and we’re going to keep saying it: you don’t have to go through your life peeing your pants every time you sneeze, sex doesn’t have to be painful, and you don’t have to live with discomfort. There is help available no matter if you’re newly pregnant, 4 months postpartum, a year, or 10 years postpartum.
The subject of pelvic health and urinary incontinence can be embarrassing, uncomfortable, and since it hasn’t been talked about enough, some women just don’t know that there are tools for pelvic floor health.
If you didn’t get PT or didn’t know about PT after birth— it’s not your fault.
Unfortunately we don’t have the standard for pelvic floor that we do for other parts of the body and other procedures. If you have any other health event: there is a follow up procedure afterwards. The pelvic floor is this place where all of the major muscles in our body come together, so why are we ignoring it after pregnancy and giving birth?
Many women don’t have the access or the time to get the pelvic support they need, so Flyte is a tool for women to train their pelvic floor in just a few minutes a day.
Not only is this company developing tools and research, they’re also widely connected to Pelvic floor PT’s so they can ensure each person who needs this kind of support can find a provider that works with them. Flyte by Pelvital is making it comfortable and easy to get assessed and get the tools needed to begin the journey to a healthy and strong pelvic floor.
The Actual Product:
Flyte is an internal device using mechanotherapy— using light mechanical pulses or oscillations to put load on the pelvic floor. It tells you if you’re contracting and relaxing your muscles correctly. We didn’t have a way to load our pelvic floor muscles, until Flyte. You don’t need a prescription, and all it takes is 5 minutes a day to make lasting changes.
