Direct aanmelden



Did you know:

  • Vulvar pain can affect up to 25% of women in their lifetime?
  • Chronic Pelvic Pain has a worldwide prevalence of up to 16%?
  • Endometriosis affects over 1 in 10 menstruators?
  • Pelvic Rehab strategies can help manage all of these dysfunctions?

Despite these diagnoses being widely discussed in the literature, there is still a lot of misunderstanding, misdiagnosis and delayed or mis-treatment.

Endometriosis affects up to 15% of all women worldwide, but many women wait many years and see many different providers before arriving at accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment (hint: it is not hysterectomy!). This means that for many women, disabling pain, dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, digestive dysfunction and fertility issues become daily, weekly and monthly burdens. There is a good and growing body of evidence to support the role of pelvic rehab in optimising function in all of these domains, as well as providing advice around exercise prescription, pain science education and generalised lifestyle medicine, after laparoscopic excision has been performed.

This Masterclass takes a deep dive on Menstrual Health, Vulvodynia, Endometriosis, Interstitial Cystitis/ Bladder Pain Syndrome and Pudendal Neuralgia, exploring anatomy and physiology, hormonal imbalances that can lead to other differential diagnoses such as dysmenorrhea, adenomyosis and PCOS, as well as an exploration of how best to utilise tools such as manual therapy including external and internal techniques, exercise prescription and a truly biopsychosocial approach to help women live well. We will look at the evidence around pelvic rehab strategies for working with mechanical infertility, the evidence for and strategies to include mindfulness, yoga, pilates and nutrition in dealing with pelvic pain, as part of a multidisciplinary approach.

  • Anatomy and physiology review of the female reproductive and neuromusculoskeletal systems
