This two- day course will take participants on a journey of deeper understanding of how certain bowel disorders can be managed by physios using a biopsychosocial, evidence based and practical approach.

After a review of functional anatomy of the digestive system, we will explore the role of whole person focused pelvic rehab can be used in the management of constipation, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, anal incontinence as well as anorectal pain drivers including pelvic floor muscle dyssynergia, pudendal neuralgia and coccyx dysfunction.

We will discuss the role of nutrition and examine our scope of practice and when to refer out, as well as expanding our manual therapy, exercise prescription and lifestyle recommendation toolbox.

There will be external manual therapy and movement sessions, as well as an optional internal anorectal practical session – participants who wish to take part should have prior experience with vaginal exams.

  • Understand how a biopsychosocial approach is essential in managing bowel disorders.
  • Understand the various pain drivers that can influence bowel function and dysfunction, including pudendal neuralgia, pelvic floor dyssynergia and coccyx issues.
