Pelvic Health for the Non-Pelvic Health Therapist: Putting the Pelvis Back in the Body

Course Description

This course has lecture and laboratory components. Pelvic health is a growing specialty area of physical therapist practice. Abdominal and pelvic health issues, including pain, incontinence, and pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain overlap considerably with orthopedic conditions managed by physical therapists. This course will provide the basic tools to help address urinary urgency and incontinence, including pelvic floor muscle training and dietary and behavioral modifications. In the laboratory component of this course, participants will learn how to palpate the external pelvic floor muscles and external manual therapy techniques to address pain. Providers who manage patients with lumbo-pelvic orthopedic conditions should know how to provide basic interventions for pelvic conditions, in addition to screening in order to refer to an appropriate provider.
