Syllabus

Upon completion of this course, participants will learn how to:

  • 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
  • Explore the role of the obturator internus and its connection to low back pain 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 and hip pain
  • Identify the various types of incontinence and an appropriate treatment plan for stress vs. urge incontinence
  • Identify central pain mechanisms in both low back pain and pelvic floor problems
  • Understand the basics of sensory motor dysregulation and its role in persistent low back pain and pelvic floor tension
  • 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. 

This course is designed for both MSK therapists as well as Pelvic Health Therapists.

Over a three week period, take a deep dive into reframing how we understand the role of core muscle training for low back pain and pelvic health.

  1. Week 1 will examine the evidence that links low back pain and pelvic health together; this evidence supports underlying tension as a bigger culprit than weakness.  We will also look at sensory-motor dysregulation as a significant contributor to low back pain and develop some remapping tools to address tension in the pelvic floor and low back.
  1. Week 2 will teach non-pelvic health clinicians how to integrate pelvic health rehab into their clinical practice.  We will look at the use of screening tools and different movement strategies to address stress and urge urinary incontinence.  Pelvic health clinicians will also be challenged to think of the importance of visual cues in pelvic floor training and evidence-based strengthening regimes.
  1. Week 3 will address deep gluteal and hip pain as it relates to pelvic floor issues.  We will look at the Obturator Internus as an untapped source of deep gluteal pain that will have you look at glut med tendinopathy in a whole new light.  Non-pelvic health clinicians, as well as pelvic health PT’s, will learn how to address this very important stabilizing muscle from a bottom up and top-down perspective.

This course is a game-changer for all clinicians who treat low back pain with core exercises.  Reframing how we address the core is long overdue.
