Course Description

You already know a lot...and you know there's more to learn

This course boosts your knowledge base in evaluation and treatment of the pelvic support systems. It is designed for experienced pelvic health practitioners interested in a self-study exploration of current treatment trends and research findings. Kathe uses lectures, exam videos, handouts, case studies and clinic guides, speaking directly to the pelvic health practitioner who has experience…and questions.

Knowledge you'll gain:

  • In-depth understanding of advanced myofascial anatomy and the pelvic floor support system
  • Increased skill in evaluation of levator ani injury, external perineal measurements (gh, pb - from the POP-Q) used for postpartum, pelvic pain and prolapse evaluations and rehab treatment planning
  • A complete understanding of prolapse quantification (POP-Q), prolapse staging and treatment options including selection of pessary candidates
  • A greater level of understanding pelvic organ prolapse fascial deficits, perineocele, enterocele, levator ani (LA) avulsion and sites of pelvic pain referral by viewing examination videos and lectures demonstrating internal pelvic floor evaluation techniques with and without a 1/2 speculum
  • Knowledge of current intra-abdominal pressure and breathing strategies to use or not use with functional movements
  • The three key techniques of a standing pelvic floor exam in patients with PFD
  • An introduction to the pelvic floor and vocalization as well as Hypopressive Technique breathing

Kathe Wallace will personally monitor and support your online learning during the session. Once each week, she will answer questions and comments entered into the Teachable Comments section weekly.

What People Are Saying

"This is one of the best advanced pelvic courses I have taken. The course felt unbiased and thorough! Kathe melds many philosophies and provides both research to support her information and practical clinical pearls. Her anatomical exploration is unparalleled. Her description gave me a complete paradigm shift from the pelvic "bowl" to the pelvic support system. And all this in an online format! The videos of POP assessment were extremely useful. If you want to improve your POP exam and interventions, then this course is essential."

Crystal Hazelton, MPT, OCS

"This course was an excellent BOOST. I had been home mothering for a couple of years and this refresher was just what I needed to build new skills and remember old ones. Kathe made learning the POP-Q very manageable and provides lots of new information on breathing, abdominal wall and IAP training. The video content is comprehensive and well-organized. I highly recommend this course!"

Wren McLaughlin, PT, DPT, WCS, MS, PRC

I loved this course. Kathe's ability to make a lot of research easy to integrate is just a delight. She reviewed information I knew AND challenged my assumptions about it. My new information about fascial function and assessment in pelvic floor layers is already helping me treat patients. I also now catch levator ani avulsion injuries in my patients. Her video lectures are easy to follow and I love how she summarizes each section before she moves on. Oh and I wasn't expecting anything about hypopressives and the mini introduction was awesome. Though I am not sure I will use the POP-Q frequently, I now have the skills to interpret findings and perform one myself. I highly recommend this course.
