Despite its inclusion in most definitions of the core, few rehabilitation or fitness programs integrate the pelvic floor into strengthening or neuromotor training. An integrated clinical model of the pelvic floor requires a broadened definition of pelvic floor function beyond merely maintaining continence. When linked to the diaphragm, the pelvic floor acts as a powerful stabilizer of lumbosacral, sacroiliac, pubic symphysis, and pelvic-hip joints ensuring efficient LE and UE mechanics. In addition, the dynamic interplay of these deep muscular elements will balance and harness the intra-abdominal pressure system as a component of central stability.
Clinicians will be introduced to an innovative, clinical model that incorporates a neuromuscular-based core recruitment and IAP balancing strategy, driven by external cueing of both the pelvic floor and diaphragm. This provides a sturdy, yet dynamic foundation that is responsive to the demands of function, movement, fitness and sport. Regardless of age or sport of choice, building programs that maximize results without compounding common women’s health issues such as incontinence, and organ prolapse is a critical clinical skill for all clinicians who treat females (regardless of specialty).
Session participants will have the opportunity to experience the material themselves through exercises that integrate the diaphragm/pelvic floor piston into core stabilization, postural muscle patterning, gait, fitness and sport specific activities.

The world of pelvic health can seem intimidating to people experiencing bowel, bladder, pelvic pain or sexual issues, as well as to healthcare practitioners who would like to help! Considering the high prevalence of issues like urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, and pelvic organ prolapse, and the large impact on quality of life these issues have, it’s unacceptable to ignore that many of these issues can be addressed with conservative care.
It is a common misconception that ‘pelvic health’ or ‘women’s health’ is a specialty niche practice available only to experts, and involves specialized equipment and invasive exams. In this two-day course, participants will learn about common pelvic/women’s health issues, how and when to ask about those issues, assessment, and interventions supported by current evidence, and when to refer to another practitioner. All assessments will be ‘pants on’, but the pros and cons of intravaginal and intrarectal exams will be described and discussed.
Topics to be covered:
· Urinary incontinence
· Pelvic Pain
· Diastasis Recti
· Musculoskeletal issues during Pregnancy
· Pelvic floor dysfunction
· Bowel issues
· How to assess the evidence when choosing an intervention
