Pelvic Health

Pelvic Health Certification Series

This three-part, 18-hour course series will focus on pelvic floor dysfunction, Urinary Incontinence, and core stability. Pelvic floor dysfunction is an under reported and under diagnosed issue that will affect most people over the course of their lifetime. The prevalence of Urinary Incontinence (UI), for example, increases with age and is estimated to affect 50-85% of elderly persons living in long-term care facilities. UI significantly decreases quality of life, and is a risk factor for falls, but unfortunately many people are too embarrassed to tell anyone, and many healthcare professionals are not prepared to address the issue if their patients do reveal pelvic floor symptoms and issues.

What this certification series will address:

This course series will prepare rehabilitation professionals to apply their muscular expertise to improve the strength and mobility of the pelvic floor, effectively improving the function of multiple systems and addressing common issues associated with women's health. You will learn exercises that have been demonstrated by research to improve function and self-care that can be easily reimbursed by Medicare and insurance companies. Skills gained will allow you to leverage the popularity of Pilates and Yoga to improve adherence to Home Exercise Programs and exercise compliance, increase performance of ADLs, and attract new clients.
