Content & Curriculum
Every single one of your patients will have a pelvis, yet very often “pelvic stuff” is skipped over. Pelvic pain, urinary incontinence, and other “pelvic issues” will be endured by your patients. While pelvic issues are very common, they are underreported for a variety of reasons. The Physical Therapy profession is perfectly placed to identify pelvic issues their patients are experiencing, as well providing appropriate treatment or referral. This session will be “pants on” and cover the basics of what every physical therapist should know about the pelvis. Practical tips and suggestions on how to identify and discuss pelvic issues, as well as what to do to best help the patient.
