EIM’s Pelvic Health I course is designed to teach orthopaedic physical and occupational therapists how to effectively integrate the pelvic floor into treatment for clients with low back pain, hip pain, and pelvic girdle dysfunction, as well as selected interventions for patients during pregnancy and the postpartum period. Participants will learn how to screen for pelvic floor dysfunction and effectively integrate external techniques for the pelvic floor into their treatment plans for improved patient outcomes in an orthopaedic population. Techniques taught include manipulations, mobilizations, muscle energy techniques, soft tissue work, and retraining techniques which will enable practitioners to work with patients who have pelvic floor dysfunction using external techniques to maximize outcomes.

This course is being offered in person or as a virtual lab. Learn more about the virtual lab experience here.

  • The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that any "ortho" PT should be able to treat and this course put that into practice. The information was digestable and felt easy to immediately implement into my practice. I've already recommended this course to all of my coworkers! Course Graduate

  • Very applicable to both PTs who want to work specifically with pelvic floor patients but also very helpful for orthopedic therapist who treat back, pelvic, and hip pain and who see women (which is virtually everyone)! Course Graduate
