On This Date In History…

November 29, 2022

As I was starting to think about what to write for a blog on November 29, 2022, I did a quick Google search to see if any important historical events happened on this date. I found that one big event did happen that involves the state of Nebraska. According to www.thepeoplehistory.com, the Louisiana Purchase happened on this date. Meaning that the land that currently forms Nebraska was bought from the French in 1803 for 15 million dollars. This was the important first step for the ability for Nebraska to become a state 64 years later.

After reading up on the Louisiana Purchase, I also searched for other important information about the month of November, as it is about to end. I learned that November is National Bladder Health Awareness month, among other things. This caught my attention as we have a Pelvic Health therapist, Natosha, who has learned how to help with and treat several bladder issues. Many of us think of pelvic health and bladder issues as mostly affecting women, but 13 million Americans suffer from incontinence and 33 million have an overactive bladder. Another 81,000 are diagnosed every year with bladder cancer. All these issues can cause a variety of problems for the patients that they affect.

Physical therapy can help with your bladder issues. Natosha works with our patients on addressing these concerns through pelvic floor muscle training, biofeedback, urinary diaries, nutritional concerns, and other factors. She works to set up an individual treatment plan that is based on your needs and is constantly adjusting and implementing changes to help our patients earn their best results. Whether you are a man or a woman, if you are having incontinence, bladder issues, or other pelvic pain, Witte Physical Therapy can help you address these concerns.
