Instructor: Dr. Sandra Hilton
This super practical course will cut through the confusion and conflicting information around treating pelvic pain. It is suitable for all health professionals who treat people with pelvic pain. The optional internal component is open to all participants who have prior training in vaginal and rectal examination.
Participants will learn purposefully non-painful manual therapy techniques and neurodynamic options for the nerves of the abdomen, pelvis and upper leg. Labs will progress from acute to persistent pain treatment options and include education in self-treatment techniques for improved patient outcomes. Participants will be able to screen and design a progressive treatment for all of the major pelvic nerves.
This course is full of movement and helps clinicians to push their creativity in order to design treatments for people who may be afraid to move. Movement and exercise progression include return to fitness and heavy load as appropriate. The current evidence on pain and education are woven throughout the course. You will leave with an additional file of resources for use in your clinic and to help with adapting the information to your own patient population.
