  • Understand the research that supports low back pain, hip pain and pelvic floor problems as highly  comorbid conditions
  • Explore the 5 major functions of the pelvic floor muscles relating to low back and hip pain
  • Identify symptoms associated with prolapse, how to manage pelvic organ prolapse and when to refer to an internal pelvic health therapist
  • Identify overactive pelvic floor muscles and their role in lumbopelvic pain
  • Identify the various types of incontinence and an appropriate treatment plan for stress vs. urge incontinence
  • Address tension in the pelvic floor vs. weak pelvic floor muscles by creating an appropriate treatment plan for both conditions
  • Identify central sensitization in both low back pain and pelvic floor problems
  • Recognize when it is appropriate to refer to a specially trained pelvic health physiotherapist, psychologist or medical professional
  • Incorporate audio/video files, handouts, and skills gained through interactive demonstrations in order to confidently prescribe targeted home exercise programs for your patients

Benefits

Research over the last decade has demonstrated that pelvic floor problems and low back pain are highly comorbid.  Research does not support causality in either direction.  This suggests that orthopaedic clinicians who treat low back pain and hip pain need to understand the role that pelvic floor health plays in the majority of women with lumbopelvic pain.  Historically, pelvic health training has only become the focus of therapists who integrate internal palpation into their skillset.

The time has come for orthopaedic clinicians to develop skills for assessing the pelvic floor’s role in lumbopelvic pain.  The research demands it, as do your patients. Patients want answers to these problems as well, but they don’t often understand the connection either.  

Join Carolyn as she explores the role of pelvic floor problems in women who present to musculoskeletal clinicians with low back and hip pain.  Understand how orthopaedic therapists can easily address sensitive topics with their female patients, including incontinence, prolapse, and sexual pain.  Develop confidence in addressing these sensitive topics in order to improve your outcomes with lumbopelvic pain.  Last, develop a strong inter-professional referral process that allows orthopaedic clinicians to collaborate with pelvic health clinicians.
