the Pelvic Pain Puzzle

Pelvic pain is a common, yet challenging area of practice. The triggers of patients’ pain and dysfunction can be multiple and the presentation a complex puzzle. Patients are often embarrassed to speak about their symptoms which means allied health has a unique opportunity to spend more time with the patient to develop the rapport and trust required for this intimate area.

In this course you will review the embryology, anatomy, physiology and common pathologies of the pelvic region to help unravel the pelvic pain puzzle for your patients. Learn about the function of the female pelvis and common presentations including pain with sitting, walking and sex, bladder and bowel symptoms, musculo-skeletal pain such as pelvic girdle pain, and visceral pain such as dysmenorrhea and endometriosis.
