Men's Health Physiotherapy Teaching 2019: West Midlands UK to Washington DC
Men's Health Physiotherapy Teaching 2019: West Midlands UK to Washington DC

Treating men with male pelvic pain, athletic pelvic pain, hard flaccid syndrome, erectile dysfunction, sporting hip and groin, post prostatectomy urinary leakage and post prostatectomy erectile dysfunction are our priority in our 2 Men's health physiotherapy clinics in Harborne and Kings Heath , Birmingham , UK. Lisa, myself ( Gerard ) and Konstantionos now run a 5 day service of men's health physiotherapy and some saturdays although we do need a day off for family fun and self care. We are one of the few clinics anywhere to have 3 male pelvic health physios and to deliver a 5 day men's health clinic.

In addition to the clinical work we do we are also heavily involved in encouraging other physiotherapists and clinics/ departments to get further involved in men's health and we love working with our good friend and esteemed colleague Jo Millios ( Perth, Western Australia ) in this advocacy work. We are excited about meeting up with Jo at the World Congress of Physical Therapy in Geneva in May 2019.  We are presenting some Coventry university research done by Jessica on the best phrases to get the male pelvic floor muscles working in our post prostate surgery men. We are big fans of #nutstoguts as our men don't like shorten the penis because the prostate cancer surgery already shortens the penis and men don't want to be constantly reminded of this by telling them to "shorten the penis". Our research looks at both phrases.

We are teaching 3 Introductory Male Pelvic Health Physiotherapy Courses in 2019 as follows:

 

Sligo , Ireland : Sat/Sunday 30/31st March 2019  ( 3 places left )

Birmingham UK: Saturday / Sunday 27/28th April 2019  ( 8 places left )

Washington DC:  Friday / Sat/Sunday 12-14th July 2019  ( approx 1/3 full pre advertising / marketing launch in USA )

 

Our focus is always the men we treat in the clinics in Birmingham as we are #tutorswhotreat but it always an honour to be invited to teach also and ensure that more men will get the help they need.

All Course details can be found on the website below.

 

Best Wishes

Upcoming Event...
Managing Menopause for Physiotherapists & Healthcare Professionals : West Midlands 9/10th November 2019

Saturday 9th November 2019

Managing Menopause for Physiotherapists & healthcare professionals

Treating and supporting women during peri-menopause, menopause and beyond.

A new 2-day course for Physiotherapists & healthcare professionals using a biopsychosocial approach to help manage this important transition in all women’s lives.

 

This course will look at the latest evidence and research and provide you with proven strategies and tools to work effectively with this group of women.

 

There are many symptoms of menopause including pelvic floor issues, pelvic pain, bladder dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse, vaginal atrophy, bowel disorders, joint pain, osteoporosis, hot flushes, extreme fatigue and mood swings. Most women will experience some or all of these, and with differing levels of severity during their menopause journey. For many of these women approaching menopause comes with the continued commitments of elderly parents/growing children, work/career and maintaining existing or embarking upon new relationships. To effectively help this group requires an understanding of these challenges.

 

There is increasing evidence for a multi-faceted biopsychosocial approach to managing these symptoms. Combining appropriate medical treatment: HRT, pelvic health and musculoskeletal rehabilitation with a wellbeing and lifestyle management approach.

 

This course will develop your skills to offer a clinically reasoned approach to pelvic and musculoskeletal health and safe and effective exercise programmes for women at all stages of menopause.
