This unique course explores the connection between Pelvic Floor Function and Dysfunction and the role the pelvic floor plays in sport and activity in both males and females.

  • How to assess the lumbar spine, sacroiliac joints and the lower limb for factors contributing to your patient’s pelvic pain
  • Tests you can perform to differentiate hip joint, sacroiliac joints and lumbar spine involvement in pelvic pain
  • Differential diagnosis of common hip and groin injuries- including hernia and nerve issues
  • The practical labs will help consolidate the clinical reasoning with the taught practical skills. We will finetune the internal techniques and the neural techniques, for example for N. pudendus, N. ilioinguinalis, N. genitofemoralis, N. cluneal posterior, …
