Pelvic Health Physical Therapy Level 3 Combined
Online Webinar

About the Course

The Pelvic Health Physical Therapy Level 3 course is a 100% online hybrid course composed of 2 days live-instructed and 1 day pre-recorded course content. This course is the final course in the Pelvic Health Physical Therapy CAPP series. This evidence-based course will provide clinically relevant information and training for the evaluation and intervention of male urinary incontinence and pelvic pain, life span specific considerations, including pediatrics, and individuals with neurological involvement. Skills acquired scan be immediately applied in your clinic. Please view our Schedule for a detailed topics list.
  • 23 contact hours that can be applied toward your CEUs
    • 7.5 contact hours of self-paced course content presented in pre-recorded webinar format
    • 15.5 contact hours of live instruction presented in webinar format
  • An electronic course manual, pre-reading assignments and additional handouts (12-month access)
  • 50-question multiple-choice exam and survey (30 days to complete after the course)
  • Certificate of Completion (issued upon 80% or higher score on exam)
  • Eligibility: You must be a Licensed Physical Therapist, Physical Therapist Assistant or 2nd/3rd Year Physical Therapy Student. No exceptions will be permitted.
  • Prerequisites: Successful completion of Pelvic Level Physical Therapy Level 1 and the two Level 2 courses: Pelvic Health Physical Therapy Level 2 Bowel Dysfunction AND the Pelvic Health Physical Therapy Level 2 Pelvic Pain are required prerequisites for this course. Experience of 1 year or more in regularly managing patients with pelvic physical therapy, or working in a clinic with other experienced pelvic physical therapists, is strongly recommended prior to attending this course; lack of experience may greatly inhibit participant comprehension and attainment of skills during the course. If you have taken a similar or equivalent coursework to our PH1 and PH2 courses as a pre-requisites through another organization, the coursework you have taken must include both vaginal and rectal assessments. Please note that you must complete all coursework through Section on Women’s Health to be eligible for the optional CAPP (Certificate of Achievement in Physical Therapy program).

Course Objectives

Upon completion of the Pelvic Health Physical Therapy Level 3 course, you will:

  1. Describe the anatomic, physiologic and neurological components of pelvic floor dysfunction diagnoses, including male, pediatric, geriatric, and neurologic populations.
  2. Differentiate between male and female urogenital anatomy and the effect on pelvic floor muscle examination and intervention.
  3. Identify the causes of pediatric and neurological pelvic floor dysfunction diagnoses.
  4. Describe an appropriate evaluation of a male, pediatric, geriatric, and neurologically involved patient with pelvic floor dysfunction using objective measurement skills
  1. Differentiate between musculoskeletal, neurological, and conditions that require medical intervention based on a systematic interview and examination of the patient with pelvic floor dysfunction.
  2. Describe the impairments best suited to rehabilitation ultrasound imaging (RUSI) for the treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction.
