This course was a big hit last year, and we were asked by those unable to attend in 2016 to present it again.
Look beyond the traditional regional approach of pelvic floor PT and understand how addressing dysfunctions of the thoracic/cervical spine and TMJ region can positively affect lumbo/pelvic dysfunction. This 2-day course is designed to expand your current practice through evidence based and biological plausible methods of examination and intervention of upper quarter dysfunctions to the lower quarter region. Learn how the effects of intra-abdominal pressure with trunk / cervical / TMJ dysfunction results in decreased performance and fatigue of the pelvic floor musculature. This course provides valuable information for ALL PTs, even those not considering themselves "pelvic floor PT".
