This advanced level course has been designed to teach pelvic health professionals how to assess and treat pelvic floor dysfunction as it relates to pregnancy. Pregnancy and pelvic floor function go hand-in-hand. Understand the research that supports pelvic floor training during and after pregnancy and learn how to advise your patients on how to safely exercise based on clinical practice guidelines. Learn how to educate your patients on what to expect during labor and delivery to optimize pelvic floor function and health. This course will also offer advanced assessment and treatment skills of ano-rectal dysfunction as it relates to coccydynia in pregnancy, and anal sphincter tears during delivery.
Pelvic Girdle Pain can be a frightening and overwhelming problem in pregnancy and beyond. This course will help you to de-threaten pelvic girdle pain, both for you and your patient. Use evidence-based strategies, and self-treatment techniques to empower your patients to take control of their pain. The importance of over-recruiting and under-recruiting the pelvic floor musculature will be considered in this course; referral to a pelvic health physiotherapist will be emphasized for the treatment of pelvic girdle pain when appropriate. You will be amazed at the simplicity and effectiveness of these techniques. The pelvic girdle simplified!
