April 28-May 1, 2022
This unique four-day course is designed to educate participants on the anatomy, mobility, and motility of the pelvic viscera. Specific focus will include the bladder, rectum, uterus, ovaries, and an introduction to the kidneys. Video and patient demonstration will focus on examination and intervention strategies. Internal pelvic techniques will be presented from Jean Pierre Barral's advanced pelvic class that, to date, has only been taught in France. Wetzler has obtained special permission from Barral to teach this material for the Academy of Pelvic Health Physical Therapy. You will also learn how the internal techniques can enhance your intervention outcomes for bladder, uteral, rectal, and pelvic floor dysfunctions.
Pre-Readings: Pre-readings will be provided electronically to course participants for completion prior to the course. An electronic lecture manual will be provided in the online Learning Center along with the post-course final exam, survey and a Course Completion.
A light breakfast is provided each day, 7:30-8 am. Two 15-minute breaks will be provided each day; one in the morning and one in the afternoon. A lunch break will be provided.
