Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation for Improving Function in Older Adults: External Techniques for the Non-Specialist (7.5 Category I contact hours of CE)
The prevalence of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD) continues to rise as our population lives longer, but incontinence and other pelvic floor disorders are not an inevitable part of ageing. Demand for treatment is high as incontinence is known to significantly increase fall risk and decrease quality of life. The United States spends more money annually on incontinence than it spends on falls and third party payers are motivated to reimburse for evidence-based rehabilitative therapies that can be carried out by trained PT/PTA/OT/COTA therapists.
You don’t need to be a pelvic floor specialist to make a meaningful difference– this course is designed to offer specialized content that improves generalist care in a variety of settings. Join Dr. Catherine Lewan, PT, DPT, C-IAYT, E-RYT-200, for this 1-day didactic course that shines light on the “floor of the core,” and utilizes evidence-informed external techniques that are non-invasive and immediately applicable. Learn to incorporate pelvic floor training into any PT or OT plan of care to improve meaningful functional outcomes and bladder/bowel health of your aging patients.
