This course is designed to strengthen the understanding of the anatomy & role of the pelvic floor muscles (PFM) as a skeletal muscle group that supports the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex and its relationship to the diaphragm & abdominal muscles in controlling intra-abdominal pressure. Clinicians will be able to identify overactive and underactive PFM and develop an appropriate treatment plan, as well as determine whether to treat, treat & refer, or refer out. It is recommended that participants first complete the Lumbopelvic and Lower Extremity courses to establish a strong orthopaedic foundation prior to this course. Case presentations will emphasize neuromusculoskeletal presentations such as posterior pelvic girdle pain, stress urinary incontinence (UI), and hip / groin pain. Select interventions include neuro re-ed, ther-ex, manual therapy, and taping techniques. This course does not include internal PFM examination.
