Late Night Health Radio Show, Mark Alyn talks with Marianne Ryan

Late Night Health Radio

Marianne Ryan was recently interviewed by Mark Alyn for his radio show on Late Night Health. Mark is a well-known and award-winning radio host based in Los Angeles and his show is broadcast on many major radio stations.
During the interview they discussed many aspects about the physical therapy profession. They first started talking about what a physical therapist can do, and how PT’s can help the listener if they are in pain or need to improve movement.
Mark admitted he really never knew what a physical therapist does until he went for PT  treatment for lower back pain one and a half years ago. He also mentioned that he was surprised most of his friends were not aware of what a physical therapist can do, and he wondered if Marianne knew why. Marianne went on to explain that there is a problem with consumer awareness, and even many doctors are not sure what a physical therapist can do.

The discussion continued and they talked about the different specializations in the physical therapy profession. There are some therapists who specialize in treating sports injuries, others may specialize in treating hand and wrist problems. Marianne Ryan mentioned that she works with a general populations of patients but also has advanced training in two specialties, Women’s Health and TMJ Pain.

TMJ dysfunctions can cause pain in the jaw, orofacial pain and headaches. Many people do not realize that there is a specific treatment program available with the right physical therapist.

MRPT Physical Therapy offers Women’s Health treatment programs for pelvic pain and issues related to pregnancy and postpartum. Stay tuned for furture shows where they will discuss an exciting new exercise program called Baby Bod® designed to flatten a woman’s postpartum belly. So far the Baby Bod® classes have been fabulously successful and MRPT Physical Therapy is looking forward to offering more classes this fall.
