Advanced Clinical Integration of the Pelvis, Lumbar, Hips, & Abdomen (2-day) is built on the foundation of Neurological Dry Needling to develop the knowledge and clinical skills required to effectively diagnose and treat painful lumbopelvic conditions. This course teaches you to assess and treat pelvic floor, lumbar, lower abdomen and anterior hip systemically in women and men. Because of the neuroanatomy of the pelvic floor the dry needling techniques taught in this course do not require direct needling of the external genitalia and can be performed without fully disrobing the patient. Treatment of patients with lumbopelvic pain and dysfunction related to sport and fitness activities is discussed in detail. The main goal is to improve the clinical outcomes with these difficult conditions that many clinicians shy aware from or do not have the advanced knowledge to manage effectively such as:
• Abdominal Pain and Cramping
• Bowel Dysfunction – (Bloating & Constipation)
• Bladder Dysfunction – (Frequency & Urgency)
• Sexual Dysfunction
• Ischial, groin, and abdominal pain related to sports and exercise
*Due to the neuroanatomy of the pelvic floor, abdomen, and anterior hip, the dry needling techniques taught in this course do not require direct needling of the external genitalia and can be performed without disrobing the patient. Appropriate patient clothing, draping, and positioning to maximize patient modesty will be emphasized during the teaching of all techniques.
