Pelvic Health Physical Therapy Level 2 Lecture

Pelvic Pain

Online Webinar | PH2PP PART I Lecture

About the Course

The Pelvic Health Physical Therapy Level 2 (Pelvic Pain) course is a two-part course series composed of (PART I) Lecture and (PART II) Lab.  This Part I (Lecture) is a prerequisite for the combined Pelvic Health Physical Therapy Level 2 Lab (In-Person Part II). Part I will be conducted 100% virtually through a live webinar format. In PART I, webinar lectures will provide clinically relevant information and training in the examination, evaluation and intervention of female pelvic pain. anatomy, pathophysiology and physical therapy evaluation/treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction related to pelvic pain in the female patient. Basic concepts of myofascial release, female sexual response and sexual dysfunction, and clinical application of modalities will be reviewed. Clinical decision-making and an integration of skills acquired at CAPP Pelvic Health Level 1 will be included. You must attend the full webinar course live in order to get full credit. The Pelvic Health Physical Therapy Level 2 course is recognized by The International Continence Society (ICS) as providing training that conforms to ICS standards.

  • 13.25 contact hours of live instruction in webinar format with breakout sessions for group activities

Course Objectives

Upon completion of both Pelvic Health Physical Therapy Level 1 Lecture and Lab courses, the learner will:

  1. Describe the anatomic, physiologic and neurological components of pelvic pain diagnoses.
  2. Perform an appropriate evaluation of a patient with pelvic pain diagnoses to include pudendal neuralgia, vulvodynia, vaginismus, painful bladder syndrome, endometriosis and coccydynia.
  3. Demonstrate ability to perform a vaginal pelvic floor muscle examination for patients with pelvic pain diagnoses.
  4. Describe the female sexual response and demonstrate understanding of sexual dysfunction.
  1. Differentiate between musculoskeletal impairments related to pelvic pain and signs and symptoms associated with non-musculoskeletal pathology requiring further medical examination.
