Level 1

January 14-16, 2011
Location: Edina, MN (Minneapolis)

This 3-day course provides physical therapists with practical knowledge and skills in the treatment of female urinary incontinence, with an introduction to the treatment of pelvic pain. Instruction in pelvic floor muscle function, anatomy, physiology, and pelvic floor muscle dysfunction will provide the clinician with skills for immediate clinical application and build a base for future courses. This course is the first in a series of 3 courses designed to give the practicing clinician a comprehensive knowledge base in pelvic physical therapy management. Course content is evidence based, and will promote the use of the most reliable tests and validated outcomes measures. Instruction in vaginal examination of the pelvic floor is a key component of this course. Participants will perform and experience intravaginal EMG biofeedback, vaginal weights, and electrical stimulation as available.

Prerequisites: Required prereading must be completed. All prereading is available at this link. Open to physical therapists, physical therapists assistants and PT students in their last year.

Special Considerations: Participants will be working in groups of 3 during labs. As this course includes extensive lab work, all should come prepared to participate as both clinician and patient.

Pregnant women who wish to fully participate in this course must have written permission from a physician.
Participants are expected to stay through the entire course in order to receive their CEUs and the most benefit from the course.
