the Pelvic Pain Puzzle

Pelvic pain is a common, yet challenging area of practice. The triggers of patients’ pain and dysfunction can be multiple and the presentation a complex puzzle. Patients are often embarrassed to speak about their symptoms which means allied health has a unique opportunity to spend more time with the patient to develop the rapport and trust required for this intimate area.

In this course, your will review the embryology, anatomy, physiology and common pathologies of the pelvic region to help unravel the pelvic pain puzzle for your patients. Learn about the function of the female pelvis and common presentations including pain with sitting, walking, and sex, bladder and bowel symptoms, musculo-skeletal pain such as pelvic girdle pain, and visceral pain such as dysmenorrhea and endometriosis.

The Pelvic Puzzle is the first in her 2-part pelvic pain series and will cover;

  • Embryological review of the pelvis to understand normal functions such as walking, waste elimination and reproduction
  • Normal sensory, motor and visceral function and the influence hormones have on the tissues of pelvis and perineum, including the skin
  • Perineal functions and key clinical indicators in the history to indicate when referral is required
  • The most common pain presentations and how to help restore normal function
  • An introduction to common causes of painful sex

This course has a strong practical focus and includes appropriate manual therapy techniques that you can use with confidence in your practice. Internal techniques will not be demonstrated. The Pelvic Pain Puzzle is an excellent continuation for those that have attended Liz’s Pain & Pregnancy course. Concepts and techniques will be further explored and men’s pelvic health covered in her upcoming Advanced Pelvic Care course.

Learning Outcomes

  • Key clinical signs and symptoms of pelvic and perineal pain
  • Conservative management protocols including manual therapy
  • Interventional management and when it is indicated
  • Referral guidelines with tips for writing referral letters
  • How to develop your interdisciplinary team (in-house or external)
  • Effective manual treatment techniques and protocols

Course Details

It includes practical examination and treatment protocols you will be able to use with confidence in your practice.
