    This continuing education course is comprised of 9 hours of prerecorded lectures followed by two-days of in-person learning, and was designed to provide a thorough introduction to female pelvic floor function, dysfunction and treatment interventions. It is geared to the physical therapist who wants to synthesize the information and apply it to individual treatment programs for urinary incontinence or the musculoskeletal components of urogynecologic pain syndromes such as chronic pelvic pain (CPP), vulvar pain, and interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome (IC/PBS). This continuing education seminar teaches evaluation and treatment interventions by instructional assessment of the pelvic floor muscles with internal vaginal examination and SEMG biofeedback assessment. The information is immediately applicable to clinical practice.

    Presentation of evidence-based evaluation and treatment techniques will be emphasized. Outcome measures and quality of life questionnaires will be presented for both urinary incontinence and pain syndromes. Daily lab time allows for supervised instruction of pelvic floor muscle evaluation with external palpation and internal vaginal examination of pelvic floor musculature. For each condition the therapist will learn to: recognize the key signs and symptoms that lead to impairment, functional limitations and disabilities; use an evaluation/outcome tool; and perform a suggested protocol of treatment interventions. Clinical treatment interventions will include therapeutic exercise, SEMG biofeedback, external manual therapy, patient related education/behavioral instructions and electrotherapeutic modalities.

     

    Please note, the Pelvic Floor series of courses typically fill up about 2-3 months before the scheduled course date. It is highly recommended that participants register well in advance to reserve their seats. If you need your employer to send a check for your registration payment, please click the Request Invoice button on the course event page to reserve your seat.

     

    Special Considerations:
    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all course attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient. Vaginal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. Labs will be conducted under the supervision of instructors and teaching assistants. There will be a ratio of at least one instructor/assistant for every ten participants. Past participants have found that wearing comfortable clothing that is easy for changing (such as skirts or athletic shorts) is very useful for labs. Due to temperature variations from clinic to clinic we would recommend wearing comfortable layers.

     

    The Herman & Wallace Institute welcomes all professionals who are appropriately licensed at our courses. Being born with a vagina and other female anatomy is not a prerequisite for attending or participating fully in our courses. No one participant will be required to partner with any other one participant during labs.

     

    Vaginal examination and internal myofascial manual therapy prior to 32 weeks gestation is not the common standard of medical practice. Partiicipants who are pregnant who wish to participate fully in the entire course including in lab must bring a clearance letter from their physician allowing them to participate in the labs is required. Participants who are pregnant also have the option of bringing their own lab model for examination, or they have the option of working in a group of three during lab times.

     

    This course instructs in the use of biofeedback equipment. Equipment at the course will be supplied by our biofeedback vendor, Current Medical Technologies. If you would like to contact them prior to the course to inquire about equipment purchases, you can do so using this link. A representative will be able to assist you if you tell them which Herman & Wallace course you will be taking.

     

    10-14 days before the course, participants will receive an invite to join Teachable, an online learning platform. Teachable is where you will find pre-recorded videos and other pre-requisite learning, manual files, your liability waiver you must sign in order to participate, and any links to Zoom (if the course is a remote option). After the course is over, Teachable is where you will find your post-test and evaluation form to tell us what you thought, as well as your certificate. It is required in Teachable that you complete all components in order. Pre-recorded videos that are required must be watched before going onto the next session.

     

    PLEASE NOTE: This course includes internal assessment and exam techniques, which will be practiced in partnered pairs in lab time. H&W strives to foster an environment that is safe and supportive. Survivors of past trauma should be aware that performing or experiencing internal exam may be triggering, and that many, regardless of their histories, feel strong emotions when practicing these techniques. In order to foster an environment that is non-triggering and safe for all participants, we recommend all participants consider the emotional impact they may experience during the course, and consider consulting a trauma counselor or therapist prior to attending. Read more about What to Expect During Courses with Internal Lab Work.

    This continuing education course is comprised of 9 hours of prerecorded lectures followed by two-days of in-person learning, and was designed to provide a thorough introduction to female pelvic floor function, dysfunction and treatment interventions. It is geared to the physical therapist who wants to synthesize the information and apply it to individual treatment programs for urinary incontinence or the musculoskeletal components of urogynecologic pain syndromes such as chronic pelvic pain (CPP), vulvar pain, and interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome (IC/PBS). This continuing education seminar teaches evaluation and treatment interventions by instructional assessment of the pelvic floor muscles with internal vaginal examination and SEMG biofeedback assessment. The information is immediately applicable to clinical practice.

    Presentation of evidence-based evaluation and treatment techniques will be emphasized. Outcome measures and quality of life questionnaires will be presented for both urinary incontinence and pain syndromes. Daily lab time allows for supervised instruction of pelvic floor muscle evaluation with external palpation and internal vaginal examination of pelvic floor musculature. For each condition the therapist will learn to: recognize the key signs and symptoms that lead to impairment, functional limitations and disabilities; use an evaluation/outcome tool; and perform a suggested protocol of treatment interventions. Clinical treatment interventions will include therapeutic exercise, SEMG biofeedback, external manual therapy, patient related education/behavioral instructions and electrotherapeutic modalities.

     

    Please note, the Pelvic Floor series of courses typically fill up about 2-3 months before the scheduled course date. It is highly recommended that participants register well in advance to reserve their seats. If you need your employer to send a check for your registration payment, please click the Request Invoice button on the course event page to reserve your seat.

     

    Special Considerations:
    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all course attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient. Vaginal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. Labs will be conducted under the supervision of instructors and teaching assistants. There will be a ratio of at least one instructor/assistant for every ten participants. Past participants have found that wearing comfortable clothing that is easy for changing (such as skirts or athletic shorts) is very useful for labs. Due to temperature variations from clinic to clinic we would recommend wearing comfortable layers.

     

    The Herman & Wallace Institute welcomes all professionals who are appropriately licensed at our courses. Being born with a vagina and other female anatomy is not a prerequisite for attending or participating fully in our courses. No one participant will be required to partner with any other one participant during labs.

     

    Vaginal examination and internal myofascial manual therapy prior to 32 weeks gestation is not the common standard of medical practice. Partiicipants who are pregnant who wish to participate fully in the entire course including in lab must bring a clearance letter from their physician allowing them to participate in the labs is required. Participants who are pregnant also have the option of bringing their own lab model for examination, or they have the option of working in a group of three during lab times.

     

    This course instructs in the use of biofeedback equipment. Equipment at the course will be supplied by our biofeedback vendor, Current Medical Technologies. If you would like to contact them prior to the course to inquire about equipment purchases, you can do so using this link. A representative will be able to assist you if you tell them which Herman & Wallace course you will be taking.

     

    10-14 days before the course, participants will receive an invite to join Teachable, an online learning platform. Teachable is where you will find pre-recorded videos and other pre-requisite learning, manual files, your liability waiver you must sign in order to participate, and any links to Zoom (if the course is a remote option). After the course is over, Teachable is where you will find your post-test and evaluation form to tell us what you thought, as well as your certificate. It is required in Teachable that you complete all components in order. Pre-recorded videos that are required must be watched before going onto the next session.

     

    PLEASE NOTE: This course includes internal assessment and exam techniques, which will be practiced in partnered pairs in lab time. H&W strives to foster an environment that is safe and supportive. Survivors of past trauma should be aware that performing or experiencing internal exam may be triggering, and that many, regardless of their histories, feel strong emotions when practicing these techniques. In order to foster an environment that is non-triggering and safe for all participants, we recommend all participants consider the emotional impact they may experience during the course, and consider consulting a trauma counselor or therapist prior to attending. Read more about What to Expect During Courses with Internal Lab Work.

     

    Audience:

    This continuing education seminar is targeted to physical therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapist assistants, registered nurses, nurse midwives, and other rehabilitation professionals. Content is not intended for use outside the scope of the learner's license or regulation. Physical therapy continuing education courses should not be taken by individuals who are not licensed or otherwise regulated, except, as they are involved in a specific plan of care.

    This continuing education course is comprised of 9 hours of prerecorded lectures followed by two-days of in-person learning, and was designed to provide a thorough introduction to female pelvic floor function, dysfunction and treatment interventions. It is geared to the physical therapist who wants to synthesize the information and apply it to individual treatment programs for urinary incontinence or the musculoskeletal components of urogynecologic pain syndromes such as chronic pelvic pain (CPP), vulvar pain, and interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome (IC/PBS). This continuing education seminar teaches evaluation and treatment interventions by instructional assessment of the pelvic floor muscles with internal vaginal examination and SEMG biofeedback assessment. The information is immediately applicable to clinical practice.

    Presentation of evidence-based evaluation and treatment techniques will be emphasized. Outcome measures and quality of life questionnaires will be presented for both urinary incontinence and pain syndromes. Daily lab time allows for supervised instruction of pelvic floor muscle evaluation with external palpation and internal vaginal examination of pelvic floor musculature. For each condition the therapist will learn to: recognize the key signs and symptoms that lead to impairment, functional limitations and disabilities; use an evaluation/outcome tool; and perform a suggested protocol of treatment interventions. Clinical treatment interventions will include therapeutic exercise, SEMG biofeedback, external manual therapy, patient related education/behavioral instructions and electrotherapeutic modalities.

     

    Please note, the Pelvic Floor series of courses typically fill up about 2-3 months before the scheduled course date. It is highly recommended that participants register well in advance to reserve their seats. If you need your employer to send a check for your registration payment, please click the Request Invoice button on the course event page to reserve your seat.

     

    Special Considerations:
    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all course attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient. Vaginal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. Labs will be conducted under the supervision of instructors and teaching assistants. There will be a ratio of at least one instructor/assistant for every ten participants. Past participants have found that wearing comfortable clothing that is easy for changing (such as skirts or athletic shorts) is very useful for labs. Due to temperature variations from clinic to clinic we would recommend wearing comfortable layers.

     

    The Herman & Wallace Institute welcomes all professionals who are appropriately licensed at our courses. Being born with a vagina and other female anatomy is not a prerequisite for attending or participating fully in our courses. No one participant will be required to partner with any other one participant during labs.

     

    Vaginal examination and internal myofascial manual therapy prior to 32 weeks gestation is not the common standard of medical practice. Partiicipants who are pregnant who wish to participate fully in the entire course including in lab must bring a clearance letter from their physician allowing them to participate in the labs is required. Participants who are pregnant also have the option of bringing their own lab model for examination, or they have the option of working in a group of three during lab times.

     

    This course instructs in the use of biofeedback equipment. Equipment at the course will be supplied by our biofeedback vendor, Current Medical Technologies. If you would like to contact them prior to the course to inquire about equipment purchases, you can do so using this link. A representative will be able to assist you if you tell them which Herman & Wallace course you will be taking.

     

    10-14 days before the course, participants will receive an invite to join Teachable, an online learning platform. Teachable is where you will find pre-recorded videos and other pre-requisite learning, manual files, your liability waiver you must sign in order to participate, and any links to Zoom (if the course is a remote option). After the course is over, Teachable is where you will find your post-test and evaluation form to tell us what you thought, as well as your certificate. It is required in Teachable that you complete all components in order. Pre-recorded videos that are required must be watched before going onto the next session.

     

    PLEASE NOTE: This course includes internal assessment and exam techniques, which will be practiced in partnered pairs in lab time. H&W strives to foster an environment that is safe and supportive. Survivors of past trauma should be aware that performing or experiencing internal exam may be triggering, and that many, regardless of their histories, feel strong emotions when practicing these techniques. In order to foster an environment that is non-triggering and safe for all participants, we recommend all participants consider the emotional impact they may experience during the course, and consider consulting a trauma counselor or therapist prior to attending. Read more about What to Expect During Courses with Internal Lab Work.

     

    Audience:

    This continuing education seminar is targeted to physical therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapist assistants, registered nurses, nurse midwives, and other rehabilitation professionals. Content is not intended for use outside the scope of the learner's license or regulation.

    Contact Hours: 22.5

    This continuing education course is a three-day (8 hours of online content, followed by a 2-day in-person course) intermediate-level seminar designed as a next step in completing the clinicians’ ability to more comprehensively evaluate and treat the female and male pelvic floor. The participant will have the opportunity to learn about two common bowel dysfunctions, fecal incontinence and constipation, and how the pelvic rehabilitation provider can play a crucial role in overcoming these issues that affect quality of life so dramatically. In the US, adult estimates of fecal incontinence is over 8%, and greater than 15% in people over age 70. (Whitehead, 2010) According to the National Institutes of Health, constipation affects up to 15% of people, and is one of the most common gastrointestinal complaints that affects 42 million people. (Constipation, 2013) Pelvic rehabilitation providers are able to teach patients how to significantly improve quality of life through simple behavioral techniques and approaches that optimize abdominopelvic health.

    Participants will learn how to evaluate the patient who presents with bowel dysfunction including fecal incontinence and constipation, and also with defecation disorders such as paroxysmal puborectalis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and fecal urgency. Knowledge of pelvic anatomy expands into the gastrointestinal system with detailed instruction about the rectum and anal canal, anal sphincters, and with instruction in important physiologic principles such as the gastrocolic reflex, sampling response, and intrinsic defecation reflex. There are other conditions that can cause pain or bleeding such as hemorrhoids, fistulas, fissures, and proctalgia fugax; the clinician will learn how to apply skills of external and internal pelvic muscle assessment (via the anorectal canal) for these conditions.

    Many pelvic rehabilitation providers attend this course to learn clinical skills for coccyx pain and for pudendal neuralgia, two conditions that are included on Day 2 of this continuing education course. As either condition can contribute to chronic pelvic pain, this course provides significant lab time so that participants will have the opportunity to practice any new skills. Day 3 of the course introduces the participant to pelvic rehabilitation of the male patient with an emphasis on topics of male pelvic anatomy, urinary incontinence, prostatectomy, and male pelvic pain. The content in this course prepares the therapist to work with male pelvic conditions by reinforcing what is common to the care of both men and women, as well as teaching that which is unique for the male patient.Current medical evaluation (with tests such as defecography, manometry), medical management (for anorectal pain and for colorectal conditions), and evidence-informed clinical interventions will be instructed.

     

    Please note, the Pelvic Floor series of courses typically fill up about 2-3 months before the scheduled course date. It is highly recommended that participants register well in advance to reserve their seats.

    Experience Level: Intermediate
    Contact Hours: 22.5

    This continuing education course is a three-day (8 hours of online content, followed by a 2-day in-person course) intermediate-level seminar designed as a next step in completing the clinicians’ ability to more comprehensively evaluate and treat the female and male pelvic floor. The participant will have the opportunity to learn about two common bowel dysfunctions, fecal incontinence and constipation, and how the pelvic rehabilitation provider can play a crucial role in overcoming these issues that affect quality of life so dramatically. In the US, adult estimates of fecal incontinence is over 8%, and greater than 15% in people over age 70. (Whitehead, 2010) According to the National Institutes of Health, constipation affects up to 15% of people, and is one of the most common gastrointestinal complaints that affects 42 million people. (Constipation, 2013) Pelvic rehabilitation providers are able to teach patients how to significantly improve quality of life through simple behavioral techniques and approaches that optimize abdominopelvic health.

    Participants will learn how to evaluate the patient who presents with bowel dysfunction including fecal incontinence and constipation, and also with defecation disorders such as paroxysmal puborectalis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and fecal urgency. Knowledge of pelvic anatomy expands into the gastrointestinal system with detailed instruction about the rectum and anal canal, anal sphincters, and with instruction in important physiologic principles such as the gastrocolic reflex, sampling response, and intrinsic defecation reflex. There are other conditions that can cause pain or bleeding such as hemorrhoids, fistulas, fissures, and proctalgia fugax; the clinician will learn how to apply skills of external and internal pelvic muscle assessment (via the anorectal canal) for these conditions.

    Many pelvic rehabilitation providers attend this course to learn clinical skills for coccyx pain and for pudendal neuralgia, two conditions that are included on Day 2 of this continuing education course. As either condition can contribute to chronic pelvic pain, this course provides significant lab time so that participants will have the opportunity to practice any new skills. Day 3 of the course introduces the participant to pelvic rehabilitation of the male patient with an emphasis on topics of male pelvic anatomy, urinary incontinence, prostatectomy, and male pelvic pain. The content in this course prepares the therapist to work with male pelvic conditions by reinforcing what is common to the care of both men and women, as well as teaching that which is unique for the male patient.Current medical evaluation (with tests such as defecography, manometry), medical management (for anorectal pain and for colorectal conditions), and evidence-informed clinical interventions will be instructed.

     

    Please note, the Pelvic Floor series of courses typically fill up about 2-3 months before the scheduled course date. It is highly recommended that participants register well in advance to reserve their seats. If you need your employer to send a check for your registration payment, please click the Request Invoice button on the course event page to reserve your seat.

     

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all course attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient. Rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. Past participants have found that wearing comfortable clothing that is easy for changing (such as skirts or athletic shorts) is very useful for labs. Due to temperature variations from clinic to clinic we would recommend wearing comfortable layers.

    PLEASE NOTE: This course includes internal assessment and exam techniques, which will be practiced in partnered pairs in lab time. H&W strives to foster an environment that is safe and supportive. Survivors of past trauma should be aware that performing or experiencing internal exam may be triggering, and that many, regardless of their histories, feel strong emotions when practicing these techniques. In order to foster an environment that is non-triggering and safe for all participants, we recommend all participants consider the emotional impact they may experience during the course, and consider consulting a trauma counselor or therapist prior to attending. Read more about What to Expect During Courses with Internal Lab Work.

    10-14 days before the course, participants will receive an invite to join Teachable, an online learning platform. Teachable is where you will find pre-recorded videos and other pre-requisite learning, manual files, your liability waiver you must sign in order to participate, and any links to Zoom (if the course is a remote option). After the course is over, Teachable is where you will find your post-test and evaluation form to tell us what you thought, as well as your certificate. It is required in Teachable that you complete all components in order. Pre-recorded videos that are required must be watched before going onto the next session.

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all course attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient. Rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. Past participants have found that wearing comfortable clothing that is easy for changing (such as skirts or athletic shorts) is very useful for labs. Due to temperature variations from clinic to clinic we would recommend wearing comfortable layers.

    PLEASE NOTE: This course includes internal assessment and exam techniques, which will be practiced in partnered pairs in lab time. H&W strives to foster an environment that is safe and supportive. Survivors of past trauma should be aware that performing or experiencing internal exam may be triggering, and that many, regardless of their histories, feel strong emotions when practicing these techniques. In order to foster an environment that is non-triggering and safe for all participants, we recommend all participants consider the emotional impact they may experience during the course, and consider consulting a trauma counselor or therapist prior to attending. Read more about What to Expect During Courses with Internal Lab Work.

    10-14 days before the course, participants will receive an invite to join Teachable, an online learning platform. Teachable is where you will find pre-recorded videos and other pre-requisite learning, manual files, your liability waiver you must sign in order to participate, and any links to Zoom (if the course is a remote option). After the course is over, Teachable is where you will find your post-test and evaluation form to tell us what you thought, as well as your certificate. It is required in Teachable that you complete all components in order. Pre-recorded videos that are required must be watched before going onto the next session.

    This continuing education course is a three-day (8 hours of online content, followed by a 2-day in-person course) intermediate-level seminar designed as a next step in completing the clinicians’ ability to more comprehensively evaluate and treat the female and male pelvic floor. The participant will have the opportunity to learn about two common bowel dysfunctions, fecal incontinence and constipation, and how the pelvic rehabilitation provider can play a crucial role in overcoming these issues that affect quality of life so dramatically. In the US, adult estimates of fecal incontinence is over 8%, and greater than 15% in people over age 70. (Whitehead, 2010) According to the National Institutes of Health, constipation affects up to 15% of people, and is one of the most common gastrointestinal complaints that affects 42 million people. (Constipation, 2013) Pelvic rehabilitation providers are able to teach patients how to significantly improve quality of life through simple behavioral techniques and approaches that optimize abdominopelvic health.

    Participants will learn how to evaluate the patient who presents with bowel dysfunction including fecal incontinence and constipation, and also with defecation disorders such as paroxysmal puborectalis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and fecal urgency. Knowledge of pelvic anatomy expands into the gastrointestinal system with detailed instruction about the rectum and anal canal, anal sphincters, and with instruction in important physiologic principles such as the gastrocolic reflex, sampling response, and intrinsic defecation reflex. There are other conditions that can cause pain or bleeding such as hemorrhoids, fistulas, fissures, and proctalgia fugax; the clinician will learn how to apply skills of external and internal pelvic muscle assessment (via the anorectal canal) for these conditions.

    Many pelvic rehabilitation providers attend this course to learn clinical skills for coccyx pain and for pudendal neuralgia, two conditions that are included on Day 2 of this continuing education course. As either condition can contribute to chronic pelvic pain, this course provides significant lab time so that participants will have the opportunity to practice any new skills. Day 3 of the course introduces the participant to pelvic rehabilitation of the male patient with an emphasis on topics of male pelvic anatomy, urinary incontinence, prostatectomy, and male pelvic pain. The content in this course prepares the therapist to work with male pelvic conditions by reinforcing what is common to the care of both men and women, as well as teaching that which is unique for the male patient.Current medical evaluation (with tests such as defecography, manometry), medical management (for anorectal pain and for colorectal conditions), and evidence-informed clinical interventions will be instructed.

     

    Please note, the Pelvic Floor series of courses typically fill up about 2-3 months before the scheduled course date. It is highly recommended that participants register well in advance to reserve their seats. If you need your employer to send a check for your registration payment, please click the Request Invoice button on the course event page to reserve your seat.

     

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all course attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient. Rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. Past participants have found that wearing comfortable clothing that is easy for changing (such as skirts or athletic shorts) is very useful for labs. Due to temperature variations from clinic to clinic we would recommend wearing comfortable layers.

    PLEASE NOTE: This course includes internal assessment and exam techniques, which will be practiced in partnered pairs in lab time. H&W strives to foster an environment that is safe and supportive. Survivors of past trauma should be aware that performing or experiencing internal exam may be triggering, and that many, regardless of their histories, feel strong emotions when practicing these techniques. In order to foster an environment that is non-triggering and safe for all participants, we recommend all participants consider the emotional impact they may experience during the course, and consider consulting a trauma counselor or therapist prior to attending. Read more about What to Expect During Courses with Internal Lab Work.

    10-14 days before the course, participants will receive an invite to join Teachable, an online learning platform. Teachable is where you will find pre-recorded videos and other pre-requisite learning, manual files, your liability waiver you must sign in order to participate, and any links to Zoom (if the course is a remote option). After the course is over, Teachable is where you will find your post-test and evaluation form to tell us what you thought, as well as your certificate. It is required in Teachable that you complete all components in order. Pre-recorded videos that are required must be watched before going onto the next session.

    This three day (8 hours of online content, plus 2-days of in-person learning) intermediate-level continuing education course further defines skills and knowledge learned in the foundational Pelvic Floor Level One course. Specific, advanced examination techniques such as pelvic muscle mapping and interventions including downtraining of overactive muscles is instructed. With a specific focus on urogynecologic conditions including prolapse and pelvic organ descent, various pelvic pain diagnoses, and abdominal wall rehabilitation, the participant will be able to learn specific skills to treat these conditions that have a significant negative impact on a woman's health. Evidence-based references and case studies will be presented for thorough understanding of current medical evaluation and management of each condition.

    Instruction in female urogynecologic anatomy occurs throughout this continuing education course, along with education in current terminology and clinical models related to trunk and pelvic control. Detailed internal vaginal and external perineal examinations are included in the practical lab activities, during which the participant will have two instructors and several experienced lab assistants as guides. An entire lecture is dedicated to the management of prolapse and pelvic organ descent so that the pelvic rehabilitation provider will be able to develop clinical and home program strategies for the patient who presents with conditions such  rectocele, cystocele, or uterine prolapse.

    Common conditions associated with female pelvic pain are included throughout the three days of education. Such diagnoses may include vulvar pain, vestibulitis, interstitial cystitis or bladder pain syndrome, episiotomy, dyspareunia, lichen sclerosis, lichen simplex, or lichen planus. Both abdominal and pelvic muscle tenderness is higher in patients who have chronic pelvic pain, and increased pelvic muscle tender points have been noted to correlate with higher rates of depression, dyspareunia (pain with sexual function), and bowel dysfunction. (Montenegro et al., 2009; Montenegro et al., 2010) Assessment and treatment of pelvic and abdominal wall tender points is instructed along with abdominopelvic nerve dysfunction and relaxation training- all are strategies that the clinician can employ immediately following completion of this continuing education course. The important and sensitive topic of sexual abuse and trauma as it relates to pelvic dysfunction and to care of the patient is discussed.

    Please note, the Pelvic Floor series of courses typically fill up about 2-3 months before the scheduled course date. It is highly recommended that participants register well in advance to reserve their seats. If you need your employer to send a check for your registration payment, please click the Request Invoice button on the course event page to reserve your seat.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all course attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient. Vaginal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. Labs will be conducted under the supervision of instructors and teaching assistants. There will be a ratio of at least one instructor/assistant for every ten participants. Past participants have found that wearing comfortable clothing that is easy for changing (such as skirts or athletic shorts) is very useful for labs. Due to temperature variations from clinic to clinic we would recommend wearing comfortable layers.

    The Herman & Wallace Institute welcomes all professionals who are appropriately licensed at our courses. Being born with a vagina and other female anatomy is not a prerequisite for attending or participating fully in our courses. No one participant will be required to partner with any other one participant during labs.

    Vaginal examination and internal myofascial manual therapy prior to 32 weeks gestation is not the common standard of medical practice. Participants who are pregnant who wish to participate fully in the entire course including in lab must bring a clearance letter from their physician allowing them to participate in the labs is required. Participants who are pregnant also have the option of bringing their own lab model for examination, or they have the option of working in a group of three during lab times. 

     

    PLEASE NOTE: This course includes internal assessment and exam techniques, which will be practiced in partnered pairs in lab time. H&W strives to foster an environment that is safe and supportive. Survivors of past trauma should be aware that performing or experiencing internal exam may be triggering, and that many, regardless of their histories, feel strong emotions when practicing these techniques. In order to foster an environment that is non-triggering and safe for all participants, we recommend all participants consider the emotional impact they may experience during the course, and consider consulting a trauma counselor or therapist prior to attending.
