How do we define pelvic health? 

Cynthia M. Chiarello, PT, PhD, Editor-in-Chief

In this editorial, our EIC helps readers understand why JWHPT kept its name when the Academy name changed. 

“The answer is simple, there are so many aspects of women’s health that extend well beyond the pelvis.  I wanted to maintain the journal’s vast landscape on all aspects of women’s health physical therapy (PT) while extending its reach to include pelvic health for everyone.”

Further, Cynthia elaborates on how we as students, clinicians and researchers are currently defining our pelvic health practice and encourages readers to create their own elevator pitch to be able to define our professional identity.
