CEU Course Description

Around one-quarter of women and 15 percent of men experience a pelvic floor disorder of some sort in their lifetime. These conditions can cause discomfort, pain, poor control of bowel and bladder, and sexual dysfunction. Throughout this course, physical therapists and physical therapist assistants will gain a deep understanding of the anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics of the pelvic floor. They will learn to identify common pelvic floor disorders, such as urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain, and sexual dysfunction, and explore evidence-based strategies for their management. Physical therapists and assistants will gain an understanding of the incidence of pelvic floor disorders, how back pain is a common co-occurring condition, and several definitions related to pelvic floor conditions relevant to physical therapy. 

CEU Course Objectives

  1. Recognize the anatomy of the musculoskeletal and genitourinary systems as it relates to pelvic floor dysfunction and pelvic pain.
  2. Recall pelvic floor therapy strategies to best care for those with various pelvic floor and pelvic pain disorders.
  3. Identify the relationship between low back pain and pelvic dysfunction to manage patient care of both conditions.
