Event description

Description

This 3-day hands on evidenced based course is for all female and male orthopedic, sports, geriatric, Women’s and Men’s Health Physical Therapists, Midwives, PAC’s, CNP’s, OT’s and MD’s

It is designed to be immediately applicable the following day to your clinical practice

The emphasis of this course is on multiple closely supervised hands- on labs with different lab partners so that variations in anatomy, physiology, urologic, gynecologic , anorectal, orthopedic and musculoskeletal issues are observed

This course will cover pelvic floor anatomy and physiology, mechanisms for evaluation and treatment of urinary, organ prolapse, “cele’s”, bowel issues, episiotomy, fissures, fistulas, chronic pelvic pain, muscular weakness, muscular incoordination, muscular overactivity

This course will tie together the influence orthopedic alignment in the rest of the body has on the pelvic floor

Participants will utilize an evaluation form, understand how to utilize other valid and reliable questionnaires, generate the key findings from the evaluation, use clinical reasoning to formulate a hypothesis, set up a treatment program and practice the manual therapy and exercise techniques in class

This class will be held to a smaller limited number of participants for better supervision and learning

There will be many different educational materials used to address different learning styles

There will be external and internal pelvic floor examination and treatment labs, that demonstrate how to not hurt the patient in order to evaluate, eliminate impairment and improve function

If you have taken a pelvic floor course before and were not able to implement your skills, have concerns about evaluating and treating pelvic floor patients, feel you need a refresher course, or feel that you want more hands-on learning and supervised practice, this course is exactly what you want and need


Objectives: Upon completion of this seminar, participants will be able to:

1. Describe precautions and contraindications for an appropriate and warranted external and/or internal pelvic floor muscle examination and treatment

2. Understand the key questions to ask the patient prior to the pelvic floor muscle examination and become familiar with a pelvic floor consent form for the patient to sign prior to the examination and treatment

3. Demonstrate through observation, structural identification, palpation and verbal cues an external and internal pelvic floor muscle evaluation

4. Describe the orthopedic components that may influence the optimal function of the pelvic floor region

5. Observe, palpate, grade and demonstrate treatment techniques for a cystocele, urethrocele, rectocele and uterine prolapse, episiotomy and postprostatectomy scar

6. Understand what the PFDI-20, PFIQ-7, VQ, FSFI, NIH-CPSI forms are used for

7. Identify the various types of urinary issues including: stress, urge, mixed, frequency/urgency, overactive bladder and the behavioral treatment options appropriate for these issues

8. Demonstrate manual techniques and exercises appropriate to treat pelvic floor muscle under/over activity, weakness and pelvic pain

9. Generate a hypothesis based on evaluation findings and an evidenced- based treatment plan for pelvic floor muscle weakness, incoordination and overactive dysfunctions

10.Generate a hypothesis based on patient information and an evidenced-based treatment plan for pelvic floor urinary, anorectal, organ prolapse, “cele’s” and pain diagnoses
