Pure Sports Medicine London MACP : Pregnancy, post-natal & female pelvic health for the Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist

Saturday 13th June 2020

A new one-day course which will prepare Musculoskeletal physiotherapists to assess, treat and manage key conditions of pregnancy related pelvic girdle pain. It will also enable musculoskeletal physios to identify conditions that require more specialist pelvic health physiotherapy such as prolapse, urinary dysfunction, obstetric anal sphincter injury and pelvic pain.

Course Outline: Pregnancy related pelvic girdle pain has a high incidence and is a leading cause of both physical and psychological disability. Post-natal PGP also affects a significant number of women yet finding physiotherapists who are comfortable and competent to see these women can be challenging. Rectus diastasis has a high incidence post-Nataly and has been associated with an increased incidence of pelvic floor dysfunction such as stress urinary incontinence, pelvic pain and prolapse. Women with diastasis also face challenges locating physiotherapists who are happy to see them. Post- natal return to sport, exercise and activity can be limited due to obstetric anal sphincter injury, pain, diastasis, urinary symptoms and other pelvic floor disorders. Musculoskeletal physiotherapists are well placed to assess, treat and manage all of these conditions.
