Nelly Faghani, owner of Pelvic Health Solutions, discusses the various types of pelvic floor dysfunction and the evidence behind the role of physiotherapy. Not everyone will be interested in taking post-graduate courses to learn to do an internal exam, but we can still expand our understanding of pelvic floor dysfunction and start asking the right questions. Take this opportunity to expand your current knowledge and have an open conversation.

During this 60-minute online course which is free for Embodia Members, we will:

  1. Discuss various types of pelvic floor dysfunction and the evidence behind the role of physiotherapy
  2. Learn symptoms that may help you determine pelvic floor overactivity or underactivity
  3. Discuss pelvic health using telerehabilitation and virtual care

This online course is for anyone interested in expanding their clinical skillset, better understanding the pelvic floor and its role in musculoskeletal pain, and the use of pelvic floor PT in telerehabilitation.

Pelvic Health Solutions

Pelvic Health Solutions (PHS) is an evidence-based teaching company that aims to educate and empower physiotherapists, healthcare professionals, and everyday people about pelvic health. PHS was founded in 2010 out of the need to develop pelvic health resources in Ontario at a time when it was an under-serviced health concern. PHS provides continuing education courses, mentoring, and clinical resources for a variety of practitioners with the goal of equipping them to deliver evidence-based, biopsychosocial assessment and treatment of pelvic health problems in our province and abroad. Our company also exists as a way to connect people experiencing pelvic health concerns to pelvic health physiotherapists in their area. PHS has ultimately blossomed into a community of curious people who are committed to providing hope and healing to those who suffer from pelvic health issues.
