Claudia Brown and Marie-Josée Lord have been successfully treating patients affected with pelvic floor dysfunction for over 25 years. Having studied and worked with kinesitherapists in Europe, they have together been responsible for the training of more than 500 physical therapists across Canada, in the techniques of pelvi-perineal re-education.
Patients suffering from anal incontinence, evacuation difficulties, and various pathological and post-traumatic conditions can benefit from our help, through education, pelvic floor and global retraining, rectal re-education techniques and behavioral modification.
This course includes theoretical and practical sessions as well as a revision of the pelvic floor evaluation procedure. The entry level pelvic floor course on urinary incontinence is a pre-requisite.
The second part of this course is inspired by French kinesitherapist Guy Valancogne and given by Claudia Brown and Marie-Josée Lord, and designed to provide pelvic floor physiotherapists with the knowledge and tools necessary for the management of children suffering from various evacuation disorders.
