Syllabus

Upon completion of this course, participants will learn:

  • Describe relevant literature on PPGP including etiology, diagnosis, risk factors and prognostic factors 
  • Establish rationale for appropriate examination and intervention strategies (inclusive of primary and secondary prevention)
  • Demonstrate how to Integrate emerging care approaches with those of more traditional biomechanically oriented care strategies and perspectives
  • Apply current evidence-informed care principles for PPGP from a primary health care perspective and with an emphasis on the roles of physical therapists and primary care providers

Benefits

This course enables participants to REFRAME lumbopelvic pain during pregnancy and beyond. Lumbopelvic Pain can be a frightening and overwhelming problem in pregnancy and beyond. This course will help you to better understand this common clinical presentation, which has little to do with the hormone relaxing! 

Pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain (PPGP) is a separate diagnostic classification which may affect over half of all pregnant women with symptoms persisting well beyond the post-partum period.  Although largely theoretical, PPGP is currently thought to be due to a diminished capacity for the pelvis to accept and transfer load.  Several risk factors have been identified including pre-existing lumbopelvic pain, multiparity, previous pelvic trauma and emotional stress.  Further, post-partum depression and identified anxiety have consistently been associated with PPGP.  Physical therapists are very well positioned to deliver effective evidence-based care for women with PPGP.

In this course, participants will apply their knowledge of PPGP including pathomechanical background, etiological factors, classification and diagnosis, examination and intervention.  A main focus of this course content relates to emerging data and associated theories related to pain science, HPA axis dysregulation and psychologically informed care in relation to PPGP. Participants will understand the drivers that are relevant and as such learn to help their clients understand how to de-threaten the systems that are relevant to this clinical presentation.  A systems biology perspective will be considered with a review of the importance of understanding over-recruiting and under-recruiting the pelvic floor musculature.

Evidence-based assessment and treatment techniques will be emphasised. Clinical vignettes will be used as a tool to apply all care concepts and inform physical therapists how evidence-informed cognitive approaches to care “fit” the established science relative to PPGP.
