Imagine a course that is geared towards
Pelvic PT
Basic Clinical Skills
improving your hands-on clinical skills and
critical thinking skills. The focus of this
course is mastering the basic skills to be
able to treat general pelvic health cases –
bowel, bladder, and general pelvic pain conditions for women and men. You will gain
confidence and have all of your questions
answered! This course is ideal for someone who has taken one or a few courses in
pelvic health, but still wants more hands on
clinical training, ideas, and learning "clinical pearls." As it turns out, both new and
experienced therapists have found this
course helpful.

Online registration:
Review pelvic anatomy - one resource here: Ultimate Pelvic Anatomy
Resource. Bring any anatomy references if this will be helpful for you.
* Think about your clinical strengths and weakness: What do you
hope to learn more about? Any cases you have questions about?
What should I wear and how will labs run?
Wear comfortable course attire. You have the option to participate in labs as a model for partners. We still suggest this so that
others have a chance to see many different pelvic floors. However,
I wanted to provide an environment where this was not mandatory. We will likely have models on site as case studies (one male
and one female).
