    This continuing education seminar is a 2-day course that introduces the participant to the use of biofeedback when treating bladder, bowel, and pelvic floor disorders. Participants will become acquainted with an amazing tool to enhance their practice. In this course we will discuss the history, background/basics, and benefits of biofeedback when used to treat bladder, bowel, overactive pelvic floor and other pelvic floor disorders. This course also includes a review of case studies with EMG signal analysis with the help of audience participation. The focus of this course will be introducing biofeedback equipment and software, administering a biofeedback assessment, conducting a treatment session, and patient instruction/education utilizing live demonstrations with audience participation. In the live lab, participants will experience using a self-inserted vaginal or rectal sensor and move through stations covering sEMG assessment and treatment. Resources for training and certification in this area of practice will be provided. Lab instructors are board certified through the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance in pelvic muscle dysfunction. This course meets the BCIA’s 5 hour didactic requirement covering sEMG biofeedback, and the 4 hour lab requirement. This course is also approved for BCIA’s recertification hours for board certification.
