This online continuing education course was developed in partnership with MedBridge™ Education. This two-part course begins with a thorough explanation of the anatomy of the pelvis and the layers of the pelvic floor muscles. Key points of medical history and chief complaints that would identify risk factors for pelvic floor impairment syndromes will be reviewed and evidence–based references will support the evaluation and treatment methods. The seminar will be didactic for teaching the anatomy, physiology and kinesiology of daily functions we take for granted but do not quite understand. It also provides laboratory practicums for learning external evaluation and treatment techniques for the pelvic region. Participants will find it informative and clinically helpful to learn patient symptoms have an anatomic/physiologic connection to the pelvic floor and that there are simple techniques to help patients.
