An Introduction to Diagnosis and Treatment of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

95% of lower back pain patients have an associated pelvic floor dysfunction, which is not often considered in treatment. This course will help you learn how to rule in or out orthopedic conditions that may be influenced by the pelvic floor. Come gain a better understanding of pelvic floor anatomy and the interchange between the pelvis and the inner core system!

 

An evidenced-based beginner’s guide, this course will give you confidence in mastering basic diagnosis and treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction using a fully-clothed, external approach. Whether your decision to take the course is based on interest as a pelvic floor therapist or to help with lumbar/pelvic/hip orthopedic conditions in a less intrusive manner, this course provides a valuable introduction and will certainly apply to many patients who walk into your clinic.

 

As with all our manual therapy courses, this course is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give you skills you can use immediately upon returning to the clinic!
