    The postpartum woman may be one of the most overlooked clients in health care. Knowing the specific rehabilitation needs to help with common problems and to prevent future problems is the goal of this 2-day beginner level course. For the orthopedic-based practitioner, this course will solidify awareness of common orthopedic needs for the postpartum client. For the non-orthopedic practitioner, this course will provide a foundation for working with the client experiencing common postpartum-related musculoskeletal conditions. The course will open with brief case scenarios that highlight the difference between examination/evaluation in the postpartum vs. non-postpartum population. Labor and birth, birth complication and injuries, postpartum stages and concerns, and Cesarean birth all set the stage for the postpartum client and will be reviewed. Understanding typical hormonal and systemic recovery and return to “normal” during postpartum will be provided, including early postpartum changes in the endocrine, metabolic, cardiovascular, pulmonary, immune, neurologic/sensory, integumentary, gastrointestinal, urinary/renal, reproductive, and musculoskeletal systems.

    This course will cover examination considerations and modifications specific to postpartum, as well as specific questions to ask during history taking and methods for identifying red flags in postpartum. More comfortable positions during the examination/treatment and common posture/gait/balance changes during postpartum are covered. The participant at this course will understand necessary biomechanics training for daily activities, child care, and breastfeeding. As an expansion from the pregnancy rehabilitation course, participants will be taken through progression in diastasis rectus abdominis (DRA) assessment and rehabilitation, including DRA exercises in lecture and lab. Additionally, addressing abdominal wall lengthening and Cesarean scars will be discussed and practiced in lab.

    Overview of pelvic floor dysfunction in the postpartum after vaginal birth with external examination techniques will be expanded from the techniques taught during the pregnancy course. Basic bladder and bowel instructions/education for the postpartum client will be provided, along with guidance on when to refer to a pelvic physical therapist. As an advancement from the pregnancy rehabilitation course, progression in assessment and cueing of pelvic floor, transverse abdominis, and multifidus (deep core) muscle activity will be covered in lecture and lab. Lecture and lab will also address assessing and treating abdominal wall trigger points. Providing instruction and treatment in functional use of abdominal muscles with motor control and functional activities and progression of DRA/abdominal wall rehabilitation exercises will be incorporated into lecture and lab activities.

    Basic orthopedic focus on common thoracic and cervical/head complaints in the postpartum will be explored during lecture and lab. This course will also briefly review breathing techniques covered during the pregnancy course. Additionally, discussion and lab practice of lumbar and pelvic girdle examination and treatment techniques in the postpartum will expand on topics covered during the pregnancy rehabilitation course. Review and lab practice will be provided for basic examination and treatment of lower and upper extremity birth and labor injuries.

    Psychosocial considerations during postpartum will be explored: the “typical” postpartum patient; postpartum depression, anxiety, and psychosis; postpartum recovery after bedrest; collision of reality and expectations; and maternity leave and return to work decisions. Postpartum exercise, fitness, and wellness will ponder the topics of body image and return to fitness and starting exercise in the postpartum. The course concludes with discussion of marketing and billing needs for providing care for the postpartum population.

    The Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Men’s Pelvic Health Course expands on the men’s pelvic health topics introduced in PF2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and any recent updates in recommended medical screening.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis remains a common diagnosis within chronic pelvic pain. The Men’s Pelvic Health course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other pelvic diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and men’s sexual health, including the evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

    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.

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    The Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Men’s Pelvic Health Course expands on the men’s pelvic health topics introduced in PF2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and any recent updates in recommended medical screening.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis remains a common diagnosis within chronic pelvic pain. The Men’s Pelvic Health course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other pelvic diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and men’s sexual health, including the evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

    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.

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    The Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Men’s Pelvic Health Course expands on the men’s pelvic health topics introduced in PF2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and any recent updates in recommended medical screening.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis remains a common diagnosis within chronic pelvic pain. The Men’s Pelvic Health course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other pelvic diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and men’s sexual health, including the evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

    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.

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    The Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Men’s Pelvic Health Course expands on the men’s pelvic health topics introduced in PF2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and any recent updates in recommended medical screening.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis remains a common diagnosis within chronic pelvic pain. The Men’s Pelvic Health course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other pelvic diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and men’s sexual health, including the evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

    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.

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    The Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Men’s Pelvic Health Course expands on the men’s pelvic health topics introduced in PF2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and any recent updates in recommended medical screening.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis remains a common diagnosis within chronic pelvic pain. The Men’s Pelvic Health course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other pelvic diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and men’s sexual health, including the evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

    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.

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    Recommended Readings

    The Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Men’s Pelvic Health Course expands on the men’s pelvic health topics introduced in PF2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and any recent updates in recommended medical screening.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis remains a common diagnosis within chronic pelvic pain. The Men’s Pelvic Health course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other pelvic diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and men’s sexual health, including the evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

    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.

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    The Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Men’s Pelvic Health Course expands on the men’s pelvic health topics introduced in PF2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and any recent updates in recommended medical screening.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis remains a common diagnosis within chronic pelvic pain. The Men’s Pelvic Health course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other pelvic diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and men’s sexual health, including the evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

    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.

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    This is a self-hosted satellite lab course offering of our popular Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course. As this course covers the role and function of male anatomical structures, self-hosted registrants would be best served by partnering with someone with male anatomy. This is not a requirement, but please understanding that doing so is advised in order to get the best learning experience. The course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health.

    This is a self-hosted satellite lab course offering of our popular Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course. As this course covers the role and function of male anatomical structures, self-hosted registrants would be best served by partnering with someone with male anatomy. This is not a requirement, but please understanding that doing so is advised in order to get the best learning experience. The course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Men’s Pelvic Health Course expands on the men’s pelvic health topics introduced in Pelvic Floor Level 2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and any recent updates in recommended medical screening.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis remains a common diagnosis within chronic pelvic pain. The Men’s Pelvic Health course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other pelvic diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and men’s sexual health, including the evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

    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.

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    The Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Men’s Pelvic Health Course expands on the men’s pelvic health topics introduced in PF2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and any recent updates in recommended medical screening.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis remains a common diagnosis within chronic pelvic pain. The Men’s Pelvic Health course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other pelvic diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and men’s sexual health, including the evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

    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.

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    Male Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, & Treatment introduces valuable concepts in male pelvic health including urinary function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Male Course expands on the male pelvic health topics introduced in PF2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and the recent changes in recommended medical screening and interventions are referenced.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis is a common diagnosis within male chronic pelvic pain. The Male Course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other male pelvic pain diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and male sexual health, including the high-level evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

     

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

     

    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.

     

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    This is a satellite lab course offering of our popular Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course. The course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Men’s Pelvic Health Course expands on the men’s pelvic health topics introduced in Pelvic Floor Level 2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and any recent updates in recommended medical screening.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis remains a common diagnosis within chronic pelvic pain. The Men’s Pelvic Health course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other pelvic diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and men’s sexual health, including the evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

    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.

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    This is a satellite lab course offering of our popular Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course. The course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Men’s Pelvic Health Course expands on the men’s pelvic health topics introduced in Pelvic Floor Level 2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and any recent updates in recommended medical screening.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis remains a common diagnosis within chronic pelvic pain. The Men’s Pelvic Health course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other pelvic diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and men’s sexual health, including the evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

    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.

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    This is a satellite lab course offering of our popular Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course. The course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Men’s Pelvic Health Course expands on the men’s pelvic health topics introduced in Pelvic Floor Level 2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and any recent updates in recommended medical screening.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis remains a common diagnosis within chronic pelvic pain. The Men’s Pelvic Health course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other pelvic diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and men’s sexual health, including the evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

    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.

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    This is a satellite lab course offering of our popular Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course. The course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Men’s Pelvic Health Course expands on the men’s pelvic health topics introduced in Pelvic Floor Level 2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and any recent updates in recommended medical screening.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis remains a common diagnosis within chronic pelvic pain. The Men’s Pelvic Health course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other pelvic diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and men’s sexual health, including the evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

    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.

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    This is a satellite lab course offering of our popular Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course. The course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Men’s Pelvic Health Course expands on the men’s pelvic health topics introduced in Pelvic Floor Level 2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and any recent updates in recommended medical screening.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis remains a common diagnosis within chronic pelvic pain. The Men’s Pelvic Health course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other pelvic diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and men’s sexual health, including the evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

    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.

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    Great Location and facility. Great Holly.
    - Patricia Sisamis PT, MS - Benton Harbor

    All H & W courses have been phenomenal. Good humor, great stories, tons of useful resources, always leave feeling like I have tools to be a more competent PT.
    - Kristen Parisi, PT, DPT - Bonita Springs, FL

    Holly was the best.
    - Patricia Sisamis PT, MS - Benton Harbor

    I recently took (*passed) the PRPC exam in May. My preparation for the exam gave me an opportunity to really dive in and understand the content I’ve learned at various H & W courses. The male pelvic course is my first since taking the PRPC, and could really follow along 7 connect the dots more easily.
    - Kristen Parisi, PT, DPT - Bonita Springs, FL

    While the information felt overwhelming at times, I felt happy with the course and feel confident on helping my patients/clients soon!
    - Luis O. Ramos Mangual PTA, LMT - Orange Park, FL

    Great Course! Need male pelvic floor #2. Can’t wait to get the Book.
    - Elizabeth Ashley Grabel – USA

    Great course – instructors and TAs were knowledgeable and willing to help. The course was written in a way to accommodate people already treating this population or people who are looking to add to their patient population.
    - Karrie Thompson, PT, DPT - Crestview, FL

    Awesome course! I can’t wait to get back to the clinic and apply all of this.
    - Dr. Molly Robbins, PT, DPT - Jupiter, FL

    Holly provided a clinical perspective on the examination of the male pelvic floor. I came into the course without a lot of knowledge on the perineal area of the male and now I feel very comfortable heading back to the clinical and treating this population.
    - Elizabeth Templeton, PT, DPT - Cape Coal, FL

    Thank you, Holly and team, for a meaningful learning experience. Excellent diversity of topics, stimulating conversations and clinically effective manual skills reviewed/progressed. With gratitude!
    -Allison M Hammond, PT, DPT - Seattle, WA

    This was my first pelvic floor course and I never felt lost or that I was falling behind. The course was laid out very smoothly and easy to follow. I learned a lot.
    -Kaitlin McCaleb, DPT - Houston, TX

    I was terrified to make the jump from ortho/sports to the crucial inclusion of pelvic floor in my practice. The lab content has intimidated me since PT school. Thank you for making this accessible and promoting a safe environment. I can’t believe how not scary it was. Amazing content, course and instructors!
    -Samantha Letizio, PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS - Sneads Ferry, NC

    This was a very informative course. I will start utilizing this information as soon as I return to the clinic. Holly was a fantastic instructor.
    -Maria Drews, PT - Katy, TX

    Holly is an excellent teacher – she has a calm and engaging way of presenting the material, answers all questions in a welcoming way and fosters confidence. It is a necessary course to take when treating male patients. It was eye opening and will allow me to advance my skill in the clinic can’t wait to put these strategies to use!
    -Sarah Snyder, PT, DPT - GREENVILLE, SC

    I took the male pelvic floor course several years ago when it was a 2day course, this newer version is much more comprehensive and through.
    -Ilene Rosenthal-Schulman, PT, DPT - Scotch Plains, NJ

    Instructors are always very professional and mature always create an environment that’s extremely comfortable to be in as a learner as a subject during labs.
    -Aaron Small, PT - Atlanta, GA

    I extremely enjoyed this class, it has given me knowledge and confidence need to begin treating men in my clinical practice. I appreciate the emphasis on meeting the patient and their issues uniquely where they are respecting our own bandores. Thank You!
    -Cora Hargis, DPT - Grand Rapids, MI

    Holly is so graceful in her ability to handle difficult, controversial topics + in her language. I am so inspired+excited to treat men begin my journey as a pelvic specialist.
    -Victoria Snell, DPT - Denver, CO

    Holly was absolutely fantastic! This course is fantastic for anyone who treats or wants to treat the male pelvic floor. It is a great resource for both begining and experienced pelvic therapists and provides a remarkably comfortable environment for both men and women.
    -Jessica Probst, PT,DPT,MTC,SMAC - Washington, DC

    Few courses revolutionize my thinking and open endless opportunities to help my patients and this is one of those courses!! This course and Holly challenge your self limits and beliefs in a very open and safe environment with encouragement to think outside the box.
    -Charles Dudley, MPT - Essex, MD

    I feel more confident and knowledgeable to treat the male pelvic pain patient, and also some techniques and info that I can also use on my female patients. I feel that I could take five more courses on this and still learn more!
    -Audrey Quanrud, PT - Champlin, MN

    Such a valuable course for anyone involved in the treatment of male pelvic floor conditions. Very comprehensive and the emphasis on lab and palpitation skills was so helpful.
    -Kira Boyd, MSPT, ATC- Jacksonville, NC

    Even though the focus of my practice is on pelvic health, I learned quite a bit about external palpitation skills. The adaptation of women to men was very helpful.
    -Lori Buxton, PT, DPT, WCS - Littleton, CO

    This has been such an amazing course and I feel I can really treat all male patients. I feel there is so much more to develop in my male pelvic floor treatment program and I can educate my referring providers.
    -Caitlin Ruggiero DPT - Bishopville, MD

    I never thought I'd be excited to provide male pelvic floor rehab, but after this course I realize that like female pelvic floor, male pelvic floor is very under-served. This motivated me to expand my practice.
    -Cynthia Kakuk Marchi, OTR/L - Alburquerque, NM

    Excellent knowledge of the topics and genuinely love what they do! Very easy to stay focused and fun!
    -Heather Ackley PT, DPT Anaheim Hills, CA

    Great course! [This is my] second course taken with Holly and Stacey and they are by far my favorite presenters!!! I gained so many tools! Excited to learn more about past vesiculate surgeries, hernia repair, etc.
    -Natalie Miller, PTA San Diego, CA

    Excellent anatomy review and education regarding medical issues, as well as putting together clinical pieces. I really loved the emphasis on clinical reasoning to figure out what each individual needs, no protocols etc. Thank you!

    This is a satellite lab course offering of our popular Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course. The course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Men’s Pelvic Health Course expands on the men’s pelvic health topics introduced in Pelvic Floor Level 2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and any recent updates in recommended medical screening.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis remains a common diagnosis within chronic pelvic pain. The Men’s Pelvic Health course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other pelvic diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and men’s sexual health, including the evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

    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.

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    - Kristen Parisi, PT, DPT - Bonita Springs, FL

    Holly was the best.
    - Patricia Sisamis PT, MS - Benton Harbor

    I recently took (*passed) the PRPC exam in May. My preparation for the exam gave me an opportunity to really dive in and understand the content I’ve learned at various H & W courses. The male pelvic course is my first since taking the PRPC, and could really follow along 7 connect the dots more easily.
    - Kristen Parisi, PT, DPT - Bonita Springs, FL

    While the information felt overwhelming at times, I felt happy with the course and feel confident on helping my patients/clients soon!

    Awesome course! I can’t wait to get back to the clinic and apply all of this.
    - Dr. Molly Robbins, PT, DPT - Jupiter, FL

    Holly provided a clinical perspective on the examination of the male pelvic floor. I came into the course without a lot of knowledge on the perineal area of the male and now I feel very comfortable heading back to the clinical and treating this population.
    - Elizabeth Templeton, PT, DPT - Cape Coal, FL

    Thank you, Holly and team, for a meaningful learning experience. Excellent diversity of topics, stimulating conversations and clinically effective manual skills reviewed/progressed. With gratitude!

    -Kaitlin McCaleb, DPT - Houston, TX

    I was terrified to make the jump from ortho/sports to the crucial inclusion of pelvic floor in my practice. The lab content has intimidated me since PT school. Thank you for making this accessible and promoting a safe environment. I can’t believe how not scary it was. Amazing content, course and instructors!
    -Samantha Letizio, PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS - Sneads Ferry, NC

    This was a very informative course. I will start utilizing this information as soon as I return to the clinic. Holly was a fantastic instructor.
    -Maria Drews, PT - Katy, TX

    Holly is an excellent teacher – she has a calm and engaging way of presenting the material, answers all questions in a welcoming way and fosters confidence. It is a necessary course to take when treating male patients. It was eye opening and will allow me to advance my skill in the clinic can’t wait to put these strategies to use!

    This is a satellite lab course offering of our popular Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course. The course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Men’s Pelvic Health Course expands on the men’s pelvic health topics introduced in Pelvic Floor Level 2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and any recent updates in recommended medical screening.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis remains a common diagnosis within chronic pelvic pain. The Men’s Pelvic Health course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other pelvic diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and men’s sexual health, including the evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

    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.

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    This is a satellite lab course offering of our popular Men’s Pelvic Health & Rehabilitation course. The course introduces valuable concepts in pelvic health including urinary and prostate function, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual health. For therapists who have taken Pelvic Floor Function, Dysfunction, and Treatment Level 2A, the Men’s Pelvic Health Course expands on the men’s pelvic health topics introduced in Pelvic Floor Level 2A. This continuing education course is also created at an introductory level, covering topics such as internal rectal pelvic muscle examination, so that a therapist who has not taken prior pelvic floor muscle function coursework can attend.

    Urinary dysfunction such as post-prostatectomy incontinence, benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary rentention, and post-micturition dribble are discussed in this class. Because urinary incontinence is a potential consequence following prostate surgery, risk factors, pre-surgical rehabilitation, and post-surgical intervention strategies following prostatectomy are instructed. The medical aspects of prostate cancer testing are also clearly described, including prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing, Gleason scores, and any recent updates in recommended medical screening.

    Although most men diagnosed with prostatitis do not have a true infection, prostatitis remains a common diagnosis within chronic pelvic pain. The Men’s Pelvic Health course explains typical presentations of prostatitis-like pain, evaluation techniques and evidence-informed intervention techniques. Other pelvic diagnoses are covered, such as Peyronie's Disease, testicular and scrotal pain, penile pain, and pelvic floor muscle-related conditions. Men who experience pelvic muscle dysfunction including pain or weakness are at risk for sexual dysfunction. Participants will be able to describe the relationships between pelvic muscle function and men’s sexual health, including the evidence that demonstrates pelvic muscle rehabilitation's positive impact on erectile function. This continuing education course includes lecture and labs, including external and internal muscle mapping and neuro-myofascial treatment techniques.

    Special Considerations:

    As this continuing education course includes extensive lab work, all attendees should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient unless medically contraindicated (if unsure please check with your physician prior to attending the course). Internal rectal pelvic floor muscle examinations will be taught in labs. As this is a male course, please be aware that the instructors encourage male attendees.

    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.

    Prerequisites:

    This course is for therapists with experience in treating pelvic floor dysfunction. This course is also appropriate for the practitioner who has not had any training in pelvic floor dysfunction and who is interested in treating male patients.

    We have had to postpone many of our in-person Pelvic Floor Level 1 courses due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. In response, we are now sponsoring Pelvic Floor Level 1 as a Satellite Lab Course (our new format). Check it out!

     

    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 is a satellite offering of our course, Pelvic Floor Level 1. A satellite means that participants will be gathering in a given location and watching the instructor present remotely on the same screen. During labs, participants will pair up and be guided by the on-site lab assistants at the satellite course location. 

    This continuing education course is comprised of 10 hours of prerecorded lectures followed by 14 hours of live, interactive remote learning which will be completed by groups meeting at a specific satellite location OR self hosted location. The instructor will be presenting to all satellites from a remote location via Zoom. Participants in this event will meet in person to watch the Zoom presentation in the same location and participate in labs together, with the instructor guiding remotely. It is expected that participants will only register for satellites in which they are within driving distance, and adhere to all state and local COVID guidelines, including wearing a mask at all times during the course. 

    This course was designed to provide a thorough introduction to female pelvic floor function, dysfunction and treatment interventions. This course is geared to the 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, 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. Satelllite lab courses are often limited to very small groups of around ten, meaning seats are scarce. It is highly recommended you sign up as soon as you are able so you do not miss out on a 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.

     

    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 (all 10 hours of prerecorded lectures must be completed before attending the first day of class) and other pre-requisite learning, manual files, your liability waiver you must sign in order to participate, and any links to Zoom (if you choose the self hosted 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.

     

    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.

     

    Assignments

    In order to derive the most benefit from this course, we ask our participants to internalize the required reading materials and complete a diary assignment prior to attending. Please complete this assignment prior to the first day of the seminar. We ask that participants keep a personal bladder diary measuring and recording fluid intake and urine output for two days - one work day and one non-work day. Specific measurements (use a large measuring cup or urine collection “hat”) of urine output are needed for at least one day, and on the following day one can estimate by counting seconds while voiding.

    1. Bladder Diary (We will complete this as a group activity on the first day of the course) 
    2. Bladder Diary Assignment Instructions
    3. Patient History Form
    4. Biofeedback Video - Please download and listen to the presentation

    We have had to postpone many of our in-person Pelvic Floor Level 1 courses due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. In response, we are now sponsoring Pelvic Floor Level 1 as a Satellite Lab Course (our new format). Check it out!

     

    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.

    Price: $695 ($725 within one month of the course)
    Experience Level: Beginner
    Contact Hours: 24.0

    We have had to postpone many of our in-person Pelvic Floor Level 1 courses due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. In response, we are now sponsoring Pelvic Floor Level 1 as a Satellite Lab Course (our new format). Check it out!

     

    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.

     

    Assignments

    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 a three-day seminar 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.

     

    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.

     

    Pregnant women course attendees may participate fully in the entire course if they bring their own lab model for examination, or if the attendee insists on lab participation then a clearance letter from their physician allowing them to participate in the labs is required. We strongly recommend that pregnant attendees bring a model as vaginal examination and internal myofascial manual therapy prior to 32 weeks gestation is not the common standard of medical practice. If pregnant participants cannot bring a model, they have the option of working in a group of three during lab times.

     

    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.
