Pelvic Neurodynamics

Course Date To Be Announced

Please check back or email info@pelvichealthsolutions.ca for more information

Course Description:

Explore the sensitive nervous system of the pelvic and abdominal nerves in this 1-day course. We will review the relevant neuroanatomy of the pelvic organs, sensory and motor nerves of the pelvis and common pathologies. The majority of the course will be dedicated to internal and external treatment techniques for the nerves of the lower trunk and pelvis. Participants will learn gentle Myofascial Techniques, Dermnoneuromodulation, and both passive and active Applied Neurodynamics for the abdomen, pelvis and upper leg. Labs will progress from acute to persistent pain treatment options and include education in self-treatment techniques for improved patient outcomes. Participants will be able to screen and design a progressive treatment for all of the major pelvic nerves.

Through completion of this course, participants will:

  • Explain the position, function and relevance of the neuroanatomy of the pelvis and pelvic region.
  • Demonstrate active and passive neurodynamic exercises for each of the nerves presented in the course.
  • Perform non-provocative (not pain producing) manual therapy techniques for the pelvic region with internal and external approaches.
  • Explain the biological plausibility for the choice of techniques and exercises underpinning a neurodynamic treatment program ranging from acute to chronic conditions.
  • Participants will learn gentle Myofascial Techniques, Dermoneuromodulation, and both passive and active Applied Neurodynamics for the abdomen, pelvis and upper leg. Labs will progress from acute to persistent pain treatment options and include education in self-treatment techniques for improved patient outcomes.
  • Participants will be able to screen and design a progressive treatment for all of the major pelvic nerves

Audience:

This course is open to physiotherapists, naturopathic doctors, nurses, midwives and medical doctors. Internal palpation is required.

Hours:

One-day course – hours to be determined

Registration begins on the first day 30 minutes prior to the start time.

Prerequisites:

Levels I, II and III (or equivalent)

Please Note:

This course is both lecture format and practical labs with vaginal and rectal palpation

This course was such a game changer for me. I’ve been working as a physio for 14 years and wish I new these techniques from the beginning; so subtle and and gentle, with the intension of avoiding pain, only to release the painful areas they started with. Not only are the methods applicable to the pelvic area, but to the whole body.

Since I began my pelvic health physiotherapy training, I have participated in a number of continuing education programs and normally left each one excited to try the new techniques and assessment tools that I learned. The Pelvic Neurodynamics course was different. The instructors, as always, were passionate and excited to share the secrets of their success. The manual techniques that I learned and the insightful knowledge that I gained had a profound effect on the way in which I now treat and assess my patients. I was enlightened with a new skill set that could help change patients’ lives. Who knew that learning the neuroanatomy of the pelvic floor could be simple, fun and “magic”, as my patients now refer to the ways of changing the sensitivity to touch.

The techniques taught on this course tie together the tissue based needs of the client, from a neurodynamic perspective, with appropriate consideration of the sensitized nervous system. A wonderful technique is presented that teaches you how to decrease the sensitivity of the sensory nervous system, which then correlates with indirectly decreasing tension in the fascia and muscles. These techniques can be used with your very sensitized patients because they are completely pain free, and easily carried out at as a home program too. I use what I learned from this course every day in my practice with great success.
