Satellite Lab Courses - Practice hands-on skills in small groups

What is a satellite lab course? At satellite lab courses, participants and lab assistants gather in small groups (of perhaps 16 registrants) to view lectures and practice hands-on techniques (called labs). The instructor is not physically present at the satellite location, and is presenting to multiple satellite locations from an off-site location via Zoom. During the lecture, the participants at the various satellites watch the instructor lecture live on a large screen. During labs, on-site lab assistants guide hands-on lab time which is done in pairs or groups of three. We are working hard with our satellite hosts to be sure all satellite lab courses are as safe as possible and compliant with local regulations. View a list of our COVID19 protocols here.

Remote Courses - Attend from the safety of home during the COVID-19 Pandemic

What is a Remote Course? Registrants can attend remote courses entirely from home, or another safe location. Registrants in remote courses can attend the course "solo" and do not need to find a partner or small group. In terms of COVID-19, remote courses are our safest option for those who want to eliminate their potential exposure to other registrants.

At in-person courses, registrants, lab assistants, and instructors gather at a single location for lecture and labs. We are working hard with our hosts to be sure all in-person courses are as safe as possible. You can view a list of our COVID19 protocols here.

introduction to female and male pelvic pain

Introduction to Female and Male Pelvic Pain

Instructor: Holly Tanner, MA, PT, OCS, LMP, BCB-PMD, CCI

Course Description: This introductory course was developed for the practitioner who does not have any prior training in pelvic rehabilitation. In covering basic concepts such as anatomy, potential pain patterns, and common presentation, the learner can improve skills of identification of the patient who has pelvic pain.


sexuality

Sex and Sexuality in Physical Therapy Practice: Part A

Instructor: Talli Rosenbaum, MSc, PT, CST, IF

In this course covering sex and sexuality in physical therapy practice by Talli Rosenbaum, users will be introduced to the important role of the physical therapy practice in addressing the sexual health needs of patients. Users will learn the challenges and barriers involved in talking about sex and sexuality with clients, and will have an opportunity to examine their own values, attitudes, and feelings about sexuality and sexual health


sexuality

Sex and Sexuality in Physical Therapy Practice: Part B Sexuality for Pelvic Floor Practitioners

Instructor: Talli Rosenbaum, MSc, PT, CST, IF

In this course covering sexuality for pelvic floor practitioners by Talli Rosenbaum, users will discuss symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction and it’s effect on sexual health. Users will review literature regarding the role of the pelvic floor in sexual activity, and discuss sexual health and it’s relationship with pelvic floor health throughout the lifecycle. This review will include the stages of pregnancy, postpartum experiences, and the stages of menopause later in life


sexuality

Sex and Sexuality in Physical Therapy Practice Part C: Clinical Tools for Treatment of Complex Sexual Pain Disorders - Addressing Psychosocial Factors in Treatment

Instructor: Talli Rosenbaum, MSc, PT, CST, IF

In this course covering clinical tools for treatment of complex sexual pain disorders by Talli Rosenbaum, users will describe the biological, psychological, and social factors that contribute to unconsummated relationships. Participants will learn relevant guidelines and techniques for helping couples that are unable to experience intercourse, as well as existing models of treatment for sexual disorders.

Functions and Dysfunctions of the Pelvic Girdle and Pelvic Floor

Functions and Dysfunctions of the Pelvic Girdle and Pelvic Floor

Instructor: Heather Rader, PT, DPT, PRPC, BCB-PMD

This course will explore the anatomical relevance of the pelvic girdle and pelvic floor structures and functions of common movement dysfunctions seen in rehabilitation. The pelvic girdle articulates with the spine and lower extremities and houses the pelvic floor region, making its anatomy relevant to all rehabilitation practitioners. An overview of dysfunctions of the sacroiliac joint, pubic symphysis, and coccyx will be explored, as well as bladder, bowel, and sexual dysfunctions created by pelvic floor dysfunctions.

Orthopedic Connections to Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Orthopedic Connections to Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Instructor: Heather Rader, PT, DPT, PRPC, BCB-PMD

This course will focus on connections between common orthopedic dysfunction seen in clinical practice to pelvic floor dysfunctions. Orthopedic conditions such as back pain, hip pain, orthopedic trauma and surgery, and diastasis recti abdominis cluster with pelvic floor dysfunctions, such as incontinence and pelvic pain syndromes in clinical practice. Understanding the reasons why these comorbidities cluster together will assist the clinician in recognizing the orthopedic connections between dysfunctions of the pelvic floor with dysfunctions of the spine, hip, and abdominal wall.

Evaluation Strategies for the Pelvic Floor

Evaluation Strategies for the Pelvic Floor

Instructor: Heather Rader, PT, DPT, PRPC, BCB-PMD

Most rehabilitation professionals lack understanding of basic skills in screening and evaluating for pelvic floor muscle dysfunction, despite high prevalence in most therapy settings. This course will introduce multiple methods to determine the health of the pelvic floor region and its muscles, focusing on external strategies. Participants will also learn how to identify pelvic floor dysfunction risk factors from the patient’s history and integrate basic pelvic floor assessment into clinical practice.

Treatment Strategies for the Pelvic Girdle and Pelvic Floor

Treatment Strategies for the Pelvic Girdle and Pelvic Floor

Instructor: Heather Rader, PT, DPT, PRPC, BCB-PMD

Most rehabilitation professionals lack understanding of basic skills in treating simple pelvic floor muscle dysfunction, despite high prevalence in most therapy settings. This course will assist the participant in integrating basic external treatment strategies for pelvic floor dysfunction, including muscle weakness, incontinence, overactive bladder, and constipation, into clinical practice.
