Differentiating between false labor, progressive labor, and other musculoskeletal pain will be covered. Understanding typical hormonal and systemic changes during pregnancy will be provided, included pregnancy effects on the endocrine, metabolic, cardiovascular, pulmonary, immune, neurologic/sensory, integumentary, gastrointestinal, urinary/renal, reproductive, and musculoskeletal systems. Additionally, during this self-paced viewing, examination, evaluation, and treatment of common pregnancy-related lumbopelvic conditions will be provided.
