Health & Fitness
In this incredibly practical episode, we interview Teresa Waser and ask her for her top tips for helping female athletes.
Teresa is an Orthopaedic and Pelvic Health physiotherapist, operating within a non-traditional model. She works at RX Physiotherapy, her clinic located within a CrossFit gym in Leduc, Alberta, Canada where she has also coached running clinics and CrossFit, particularly in older adults. She also has a special interest in pregnant and postpartum athletes. When not in the clinic, she acts as Senior Teaching Assistant for Antony Lo’s The Female Athlete course, in addition to teaching her own seminars independently.
Teresa shares her journey within physiotherapy and her frustrations along the way as her beliefs were being challenged. She talks about when she discovered pain science and how her thought process changed after doing the Female Athlete Course and The Masterclass Program - Peak Simplicity - with Antony Lo.
Teresa then goes on to outline her acronym TIIPPSS- FC that she developed to help give course participants, and later all health and fitness professionals, a framework to think about what aspects of the person's presentation they could change.
T= tension to task (global and local)
I = Impact (eg with the body or with equipment)
I = Irritability (incl irritants of the pelvic organs or symptom irritability)
P = Posture and Position (ie static and dynamic)
P = Pressure (ie IAP. Modified by breathing, muscle contraction etc)
S = Strategy (eg technique, scaling)
S = Sensitivity (central and local. Consider sleep, stress, beliefs, attitudes etc)
F = Fatigue (is the person experiencing symptoms at the end of a session?)
C = Capacity (ie SAID principles)
