    Experience Level: Beginner
    Contact Hours: 14

    This two-day course, developed by an instructor with extensive experience working with professional athletes, will cover an evidence-based, immediately-applicable skills related to pelvic floor rehabilitation for the athlete, covering treatment philosophies for the pelvis and pelvic floor and global considerations of how these structures contribute to human movement. Topics covered will include urinary incontinence, as well as the intricacies of athletic movement and how energy transference throughout the kinetic chain is crucial to rehabilitation approach, injury prevention and high performance. This course will also cover biomechanics behind human movement of the lumbopelvic-hip complex so the participant will be able to prescribe effective and innovative therapeutic exercise programs. The connection of how pelvic rehab influences LE pathologies such as ACL, PFP and chronic ankle instability will be covered. Although this class has a focus on athletes, these concepts of biomechanics and movement patterning are applicable to all patients in the clinic

    Lab sessions will give the clinicians an opportunity to perceive human movement through a unique lens of global complexity in a simplified approach. External manual therapy techniques will be instructed. In addition, the course is highlighted with high-quality videos capturing athletes of all levels, particularly professional athletes with whom the instructor has worked.

    This course has been designed to bridge the gap between the sports/orthopedic clinician (certified athletic trainers included) and the experienced pelvic health practitioner and is designed to provide both demographics a challenging and engaging learning experience with a the goal of expanding the general sports and ortho clinician’s understanding of the pelvic floor, as well as challenging the advanced pelvic health therapist to expand their treatments to encompass three-dimensional movements and offering them an arsenal of therapeutic exercises beyond simple local type exercises. Following the course, clinicians who choose not to pursue an advanced clinical skill set of a pelvic health therapist will have a more confident understanding of when a referral to a pelvic health clinician is appropriate. Both groups will leave this course with additional tools for their clinical tool box related to manual therapy and exercise.

    2. Appreciate the unique biomechanical interactions that occur between the lumbosacral spine, the pelvis, pelvic floor and the hip complex.
    3. Utilize an evidence-based approach to correctly identify SI joint pain and distinguish it from lumbar or hip dysfunction.
    4. Practice brand new evidence-based approaches for evaluating the hip in a comprehensive three-dimensional method specific to the athletic population.
    5. Provide non-internal manual therapy techniques to influence the performance of the pelvic floor focusing on both the experienced clinician and pelvic floor early learners.
    6. Utilize a comprehensive paradigm of exercise theory, development, implementation and progressions for a variety of pathologies, such as; pelvic and pelvic floor dysfunction, femoroacetabular syndrome and a host of soft tissue injuries such as groin strains and proximal hamstring strains.
    7. Provide strategies for clinicians to determine when your patient would be better served with a referral to a pelvic health practitioner and what the current evidence is to support your decision.
    8. Create innovative and engaging therapeutic exercise programs (home exercise programs too!) for your patients directed at the pelvis with specific attention to upright and functional positioning.

    Contact Hours: 14

    This two-day course, developed by an instructor with extensive experience working with professional athletes, will cover an evidence-based, immediately-applicable skills related to pelvic floor rehabilitation for the athlete, covering treatment philosophies for the pelvis and pelvic floor and global considerations of how these structures contribute to human movement. Topics covered will include urinary incontinence, as well as the intricacies of athletic movement and how energy transference throughout the kinetic chain is crucial to rehabilitation approach, injury prevention and high performance. This course will also cover biomechanics behind human movement of the lumbopelvic-hip complex so the participant will be able to prescribe effective and innovative therapeutic exercise programs. The connection of how pelvic rehab influences LE pathologies such as ACL, PFP and chronic ankle instability will be covered. Although this class has a focus on athletes, these concepts of biomechanics and movement patterning are applicable to all patients in the clinic

    Lab sessions will give the clinicians an opportunity to perceive human movement through a unique lens of global complexity in a simplified approach. External manual therapy techniques will be instructed. In addition, the course is highlighted with high-quality videos capturing athletes of all levels, particularly professional athletes with whom the instructor has worked.

    This course has been designed to bridge the gap between the sports/orthopedic clinician (certified athletic trainers included) and the experienced pelvic health practitioner and is designed to provide both demographics a challenging and engaging learning experience with a the goal of expanding the general sports and ortho clinician’s understanding of the pelvic floor, as well as challenging the advanced pelvic health therapist to expand their treatments to encompass three-dimensional movements and offering them an arsenal of therapeutic exercises beyond simple local type exercises. Following the course, clinicians who choose not to pursue an advanced clinical skill set of a pelvic health therapist will have a more confident understanding of when a referral to a pelvic health clinician is appropriate. Both groups will leave this course with additional tools for their clinical tool box related to manual therapy and exercise.

    2. Appreciate the unique biomechanical interactions that occur between the lumbosacral spine, the pelvis, pelvic floor and the hip complex.
    3. Utilize an evidence-based approach to correctly identify SI joint pain and distinguish it from lumbar or hip dysfunction.
    4. Practice brand new evidence-based approaches for evaluating the hip in a comprehensive three-dimensional method specific to the athletic population.
    5. Provide non-internal manual therapy techniques to influence the performance of the pelvic floor focusing on both the experienced clinician and pelvic floor early learners.
    6. Utilize a comprehensive paradigm of exercise theory, development, implementation and progressions for a variety of pathologies, such as; pelvic and pelvic floor dysfunction, femoroacetabular syndrome and a host of soft tissue injuries such as groin strains and proximal hamstring strains.
    7. Provide strategies for clinicians to determine when your patient would be better served with a referral to a pelvic health practitioner and what the current evidence is to support your decision.
    8. Create innovative and engaging therapeutic exercise programs (home exercise programs too!) for your patients directed at the pelvis with specific attention to upright and functional positioning.

    Dr. Steven Dischiavi is an assistant professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at High Point University.  He is also the Director of Rehabilitation for the Department of Athletics at HPU. Dr. Dischiavi brings over 20 years of experience in sports medicine to Herman & Wallace, including 10 years with a professional sports team. Dr. Dischiavi served as the team physical therapist and certified assistant athletic trainer for the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League from 2004 to 2014, where he gained a specialized treatment approach for the hip and pelvis, which is very applicable to the pelvic health practitioner.  His sports medicine approach to the pelvic floor and hip, combined with the innovative therapeutic exercises that target a global neuromotor movement pattern, will be something the pelvic health practitioner can immediately adopt into their clinical practice.  Dr. Dischiavi’s methods, although originally developed and designed in a sports medicine model, he takes tremendous pride helping pelvic health clinicians apply these methods across the life spans of our patients and clients.

    He holds a relatively rare combination of credentials as a licensed physical therapist and a certified athletic trainer giving him a unique appreciation of the athlete. He also holds a manual therapy certification from the Ola Grimsby Institute.  He is board certified by the American Physical Therapy Association as a Sports Clinical Specialist (SCS).

    Dr. Dischiavi is a faculty member at the Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute.  He has developed his own course that he presents nationally titled Biomechanical Assessment & Treatment of the Hip and Pelvis.

    Dr. Dischiavi is currently pursuing his PhD at the University of Ulster in Ireland under the direction of Dr. Chris Bleakley. His current research focus is on optimizing therapeutic exercises for the hip and pelvis to prevent lower extremity injuries and enhance physical performance.  

    Dr. Dischiavi attended Slippery Rock University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in athletic training. He earned a Master of Physical Therapy from SUNY Upstate Medical University and a Doctor of Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University.

    Experience Level: Beginner
    Contact Hours: 14

    This two-day course, developed by an instructor with extensive experience working with professional athletes, will cover an evidence-based, immediately-applicable skills related to pelvic floor rehabilitation for the athlete, covering treatment philosophies for the pelvis and pelvic floor and global considerations of how these structures contribute to human movement. Topics covered will include urinary incontinence, as well as the intricacies of athletic movement and how energy transference throughout the kinetic chain is crucial to rehabilitation approach, injury prevention and high performance. This course will also cover biomechanics behind human movement of the lumbopelvic-hip complex so the participant will be able to prescribe effective and innovative therapeutic exercise programs. The connection of how pelvic rehab influences LE pathologies such as ACL, PFP and chronic ankle instability will be covered. Although this class has a focus on athletes, these concepts of biomechanics and movement patterning are applicable to all patients in the clinic

    Lab sessions will give the clinicians an opportunity to perceive human movement through a unique lens of global complexity in a simplified approach. External manual therapy techniques will be instructed. In addition, the course is highlighted with high-quality videos capturing athletes of all levels, particularly professional athletes with whom the instructor has worked.

    This course has been designed to bridge the gap between the sports/orthopedic clinician (certified athletic trainers included) and the experienced pelvic health practitioner and is designed to provide both demographics a challenging and engaging learning experience with a the goal of expanding the general sports and ortho clinician’s understanding of the pelvic floor, as well as challenging the advanced pelvic health therapist to expand their treatments to encompass three-dimensional movements and offering them an arsenal of therapeutic exercises beyond simple local type exercises. Following the course, clinicians who choose not to pursue an advanced clinical skill set of a pelvic health therapist will have a more confident understanding of when a referral to a pelvic health clinician is appropriate. Both groups will leave this course with additional tools for their clinical tool box related to manual therapy and exercise.

    Contact Hours: 14

    This course is held via Zoom meeting, which is free to download, and will combine prerecorded lecture with live, interactive course time that takes place via online meeting.

    This two-day course, developed by an instructor with extensive experience working with professional athletes, will cover an evidence-based, immediately-applicable skills related to pelvic floor rehabilitation for the athlete, covering treatment philosophies for the pelvis and pelvic floor and global considerations of how these structures contribute to human movement.

The connection of how pelvic rehab influences LE pathologies such as ACL, PFP and chronic ankle instability will be covered. Although this class has a focus on athletes, these concepts of biomechanics and movement patterning are applicable to all patients in the clinic

    Participants in this course will be sent several prerecorded lectuers to view before the course, and the interactive Zoom meeting will focus on exercise videos and follow-along exercises led by the instructor, followed by question and answer after each exercise is instructed. Participants will want adequate space to perform exercises while following along on the screen.

    This course has been designed to bridge the gap between the sports/orthopedic clinician (certified athletic trainers included) and the experienced pelvic health practitioner and is designed to provide both demographics a challenging and engaging learning experience with a the goal of expanding the general sports and ortho clinician’s understanding of the pelvic floor, as well as challenging the advanced pelvic health therapist to expand their treatments to encompass three-dimensional movements and offering them an arsenal of therapeutic exercises beyond simple local type exercises.

Both groups will leave this course with additional tools for their clinical tool box related to manual therapy and exercise.

    Needed Supplies

    This remote course will include exercises led by the instructor on a Zoom meeting. In order to fully follow along, participants will need to make an exercise system which consists of: an 8-foot yoga strap with a D-ring on the end, and 8-feet of theratubing (red, blue or green will work, choose a challenging color that will not be too challenging for two days of exercise). Participants will need to anchor their bands to something that won’t move, like a door jam. Theraband may work as a substitute, but theratubing is recommended. In addition, participants will need: a yoga block and a small step or box to use for a step up exercise, and a couch cushion or something that will work like an Airex pad on which to kneel. If possible, exercising in front of a mirror in addition to the computer screen will be helpful.

    Important thing to note:

    - Our policy for applying for continuing education credit for remote courses differs from that of our in-person and satellite lab courses. Read the specific language of the policy here. Depending on the state in which you practice, you may need to submit your own application to your state board or approving body should you wish that it be approved for continuing education credit in your state.

    - To attend a remote Herman & Wallace course, registrants will need Zoom video conferencing software. This is a requirement. One can create an account and download the software to their computer at https://zoom.us/

    - We use the Pacific Time Zone for all of our remote course start and end times (this is not the case for in-person and satellite lab locations). Please make a note of this and set your calendar accordingly.

    - A Zoom account is free to create. Before the meeting, we recommend having a practice Zoom session with a friend or colleague so you can test your microphone, video, and internet connection. You can participate in any remote course from the comfort of your home, but will need a stable internet connection in order to participate. We recommend downloading the software and practicing a call with a friend or colleague prior to your course with us. Zoom also offers video tutorials on their website at https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/206618765-Zoom-Video-Tutorials.

    This course is held via Zoom meeting, which is free to download, and will combine prerecorded lecture with live, interactive course time that takes place via online meeting.

    This two-day course, developed by an instructor with extensive experience working with professional athletes, will cover an evidence-based, immediately-applicable skills related to pelvic floor rehabilitation for the athlete, covering treatment philosophies for the pelvis and pelvic floor and global considerations of how these structures contribute to human movement. Topics covered will include urinary incontinence, as well as the intricacies of athletic movement and how energy transference throughout the kinetic chain is crucial to rehabilitation approach, injury prevention and high performance. This course will also cover biomechanics behind human movement of the lumbopelvic-hip complex so the participant will be able to prescribe effective and innovative therapeutic exercise programs. The connection of how pelvic rehab influences LE pathologies such as ACL, PFP and chronic ankle instability will be covered. Although this class has a focus on athletes, these concepts of biomechanics and movement patterning are applicable to all patients in the clinic

    Participants in this course will be sent several prerecorded lectuers to view before the course, and the interactive Zoom meeting will focus on exercise videos and follow-along exercises led by the instructor, followed by question and answer after each exercise is instructed. Participants will want adequate space to perform exercises while following along on the screen.

    This course has been designed to bridge the gap between the sports/orthopedic clinician (certified athletic trainers included) and the experienced pelvic health practitioner and is designed to provide both demographics a challenging and engaging learning experience with a the goal of expanding the general sports and ortho clinician’s understanding of the pelvic floor, as well as challenging the advanced pelvic health therapist to expand their treatments to encompass three-dimensional movements and offering them an arsenal of therapeutic exercises beyond simple local type exercises. Following the course, clinicians who choose not to pursue an advanced clinical skill set of a pelvic health therapist will have a more confident understanding of when a referral to a pelvic health clinician is appropriate. Both groups will leave this course with additional tools for their clinical tool box related to manual therapy and exercise.

    Needed Supplies

    This remote course will include exercises led by the instructor on a Zoom meeting. In order to fully follow along, participants will need to make an exercise system which consists of: an 8-foot yoga strap with a D-ring on the end, and 8-feet of theratubing (red, blue or green will work, choose a challenging color that will not be too challenging for two days of exercise). Participants will need to anchor their bands to something that won’t move, like a door jam. Theraband may work as a substitute, but theratubing is recommended. In addition, participants will need: a yoga block and a small step or box to use for a step up exercise, and a couch cushion or something that will work like an Airex pad on which to kneel. If possible, exercising in front of a mirror in addition to the computer screen will be helpful.

    Upon completion of this continuing education seminar, participants will be able to:

    1. Understand how the pelvic floor integrates into human movement, particularly during higher-level activities such as running, lifting and all types of sporting movements
    2. Appreciate the unique biomechanical interactions that occur between the lumbosacral spine, the pelvis, pelvic floor and the hip complex.
    3. Utilize an evidence-based approach to correctly identify SI joint pain and distinguish it from lumbar or hip dysfunction.
    4. Practice brand new evidence-based approaches for evaluating the hip in a comprehensive three-dimensional method specific to the athletic population.
    5. Provide non-internal manual therapy techniques to influence the performance of the pelvic floor focusing on both the experienced clinician and pelvic floor early learners.
    6. Utilize a comprehensive paradigm of exercise theory, development, implementation and progressions for a variety of pathologies, such as; pelvic and pelvic floor dysfunction, femoroacetabular syndrome and a host of soft tissue injuries such as groin strains and proximal hamstring strains.
    7. Provide strategies for clinicians to determine when your patient would be better served with a referral to a pelvic health practitioner and what the current evidence is to support your decision.
    8. Create innovative and engaging therapeutic exercise programs (home exercise programs too!) for your patients directed at the pelvis with specific attention to upright and functional positioning.

    Attending a remote course is easy and safe, and you can do it entirely from the security and comfort of your own home or clinic without having to find a lab partner.

     

    Important thing to note:

    - Our policy for applying for continuing education credit for remote courses differs from that of our in-person and satellite lab courses. Read the specific language of the policy here. Depending on the state in which you practice, you may need to submit your own application to your state board or approving body should you wish that it be approved for continuing education credit in your state.

    - To attend a remote Herman & Wallace course, registrants will need Zoom video conferencing software. This is a requirement. One can create an account and download the software to their computer at https://zoom.us/

    - We use the Pacific Time Zone for all of our remote course start and end times (this is not the case for in-person and satellite lab locations). Please make a note of this and set your calendar accordingly.

    - A Zoom account is free to create. Before the meeting, we recommend having a practice Zoom session with a friend or colleague so you can test your microphone, video, and internet connection. You can participate in any remote course from the comfort of your home, but will need a stable internet connection in order to participate. We recommend downloading the software and practicing a call with a friend or colleague prior to your course with us. Zoom also offers video tutorials on their website at https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/206618765-Zoom-Video-Tutorials.

    Dr. Steven Dischiavi is an assistant professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at High Point University.  He is also the Director of Rehabilitation for the Department of Athletics at HPU. Dr. Dischiavi brings over 20 years of experience in sports medicine to Herman & Wallace, including 10 years with a professional sports team. Dr. Dischiavi served as the team physical therapist and certified assistant athletic trainer for the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League from 2004 to 2014, where he gained a specialized treatment approach for the hip and pelvis, which is very applicable to the pelvic health practitioner.  His sports medicine approach to the pelvic floor and hip, combined with the innovative therapeutic exercises that target a global neuromotor movement pattern, will be something the pelvic health practitioner can immediately adopt into their clinical practice.  Dr. Dischiavi’s methods, although originally developed and designed in a sports medicine model, he takes tremendous pride helping pelvic health clinicians apply these methods across the life spans of our patients and clients.

    He holds a relatively rare combination of credentials as a licensed physical therapist and a certified athletic trainer giving him a unique appreciation of the athlete. He also holds a manual therapy certification from the Ola Grimsby Institute.  He is board certified by the American Physical Therapy Association as a Sports Clinical Specialist (SCS).

    Dr. Dischiavi is a faculty member at the Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute.  He has developed his own course that he presents nationally titled Biomechanical Assessment & Treatment of the Hip and Pelvis.

    Dr. Dischiavi is currently pursuing his PhD at the University of Ulster in Ireland under the direction of Dr. Chris Bleakley. His current research focus is on optimizing therapeutic exercises for the hip and pelvis to prevent lower extremity injuries and enhance physical performance.  

    Dr. Dischiavi attended Slippery Rock University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in athletic training. He earned a Master of Physical Therapy from SUNY Upstate Medical University and a Doctor of Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University.

    Upon completion of this continuing education seminar, participants will be able to:

    1. Understand how the pelvic floor integrates into human movement, particularly during higher-level activities such as running, lifting and all types of sporting movements
    2. Appreciate the unique biomechanical interactions that occur between the lumbosacral spine, the pelvis, pelvic floor and the hip complex.
    3. Utilize an evidence-based approach to correctly identify SI joint pain and distinguish it from lumbar or hip dysfunction.
    4. Practice brand new evidence-based approaches for evaluating the hip in a comprehensive three-dimensional method specific to the athletic population.
    5. Provide non-internal manual therapy techniques to influence the performance of the pelvic floor focusing on both the experienced clinician and pelvic floor early learners.
    6. Utilize a comprehensive paradigm of exercise theory, development, implementation and progressions for a variety of pathologies, such as; pelvic and pelvic floor dysfunction, femoroacetabular syndrome and a host of soft tissue injuries such as groin strains and proximal hamstring strains.
    7. Provide strategies for clinicians to determine when your patient would be better served with a referral to a pelvic health practitioner and what the current evidence is to support your decision.
    8. Create innovative and engaging therapeutic exercise programs (home exercise programs too!) for your patients directed at the pelvis with specific attention to upright and functional positioning.

    Attending a remote course is easy and safe, and you can do it entirely from the security and comfort of your own home or clinic without having to find a lab partner.

Dr. Dischiavi served as the team physical therapist and certified assistant athletic trainer for the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League from 2004 to 2014, where he gained a specialized treatment approach for the hip and pelvis, which is very applicable to the pelvic health practitioner.  His sports medicine approach to the pelvic floor and hip, combined with the innovative therapeutic exercises that target a global neuromotor movement pattern, will be something the pelvic health practitioner can immediately adopt into their clinical practice.  Dr. Dischiavi’s methods, although originally developed and designed in a sports medicine model, he takes tremendous pride helping pelvic health clinicians apply these methods across the life spans of our patients and clients.

    He holds a relatively rare combination of credentials as a licensed physical therapist and a certified athletic trainer giving him a unique appreciation of the athlete. He also holds a manual therapy certification from the Ola Grimsby Institute.  He is board certified by the American Physical Therapy Association as a Sports Clinical Specialist (SCS).

    Dr. Dischiavi is a faculty member at the Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute.  He has developed his own course that he presents nationally titled Biomechanical Assessment & Treatment of the Hip and Pelvis.

    Dr. Dischiavi is currently pursuing his PhD at the University of Ulster in Ireland under the direction of Dr. Chris Bleakley. His current research focus is on optimizing therapeutic exercises for the hip and pelvis to prevent lower extremity injuries and enhance physical performance.  

    Dr. Dischiavi attended Slippery Rock University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in athletic training. He earned a Master of Physical Therapy from SUNY Upstate Medical University and a Doctor of Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University.

    Price: $425
    Experience Level: Beginner
    Contact Hours: 14

    This course is held via Zoom meeting, which is free to download, and will combine prerecorded lecture with live, interactive course time that takes place via online meeting.

    This two-day course, developed by an instructor with extensive experience working with professional athletes, will cover an evidence-based, immediately-applicable skills related to pelvic floor rehabilitation for the athlete, covering treatment philosophies for the pelvis and pelvic floor and global considerations of how these structures contribute to human movement. Topics covered will include urinary incontinence, as well as the intricacies of athletic movement and how energy transference throughout the kinetic chain is crucial to rehabilitation approach, injury prevention and high performance. This course will also cover biomechanics behind human movement of the lumbopelvic-hip complex so the participant will be able to prescribe effective and innovative therapeutic exercise programs. The connection of how pelvic rehab influences LE pathologies such as ACL, PFP and chronic ankle instability will be covered. Although this class has a focus on athletes, these concepts of biomechanics and movement patterning are applicable to all patients in the clinic

    Participants in this course will be sent several prerecorded lectuers to view before the course, and the interactive Zoom meeting will focus on exercise videos and follow-along exercises led by the instructor, followed by question and answer after each exercise is instructed. Participants will want adequate space to perform exercises while following along on the screen.

    This course has been designed to bridge the gap between the sports/orthopedic clinician (certified athletic trainers included) and the experienced pelvic health practitioner and is designed to provide both demographics a challenging and engaging learning experience with a the goal of expanding the general sports and ortho clinician’s understanding of the pelvic floor, as well as challenging the advanced pelvic health therapist to expand their treatments to encompass three-dimensional movements and offering them an arsenal of therapeutic exercises beyond simple local type exercises. Following the course, clinicians who choose not to pursue an advanced clinical skill set of a pelvic health therapist will have a more confident understanding of when a referral to a pelvic health clinician is appropriate. Both groups will leave this course with additional tools for their clinical tool box related to manual therapy and exercise.

    Needed Supplies

    This remote course will include exercises led by the instructor on a Zoom meeting. In order to fully follow along, participants will need to make an exercise system which consists of: an 8-foot yoga strap with a D-ring on the end, and 8-feet of theratubing (red, blue or green will work, choose a challenging color that will not be too challenging for two days of exercise). Participants will need to anchor their bands to something that won’t move, like a door jam. Theraband may work as a substitute, but theratubing is recommended. In addition, participants will need: a yoga block and a small step or box to use for a step up exercise, and a couch cushion or something that will work like an Airex pad on which to kneel. If possible, exercising in front of a mirror in addition to the computer screen will be helpful.

    Upon completion of this continuing education seminar, participants will be able to:

    1. Understand how the pelvic floor integrates into human movement, particularly during higher-level activities such as running, lifting and all types of sporting movements
    2. Appreciate the unique biomechanical interactions that occur between the lumbosacral spine, the pelvis, pelvic floor and the hip complex.
    3. Utilize an evidence-based approach to correctly identify SI joint pain and distinguish it from lumbar or hip dysfunction.
    4. Practice brand new evidence-based approaches for evaluating the hip in a comprehensive three-dimensional method specific to the athletic population.
    5. Provide non-internal manual therapy techniques to influence the performance of the pelvic floor focusing on both the experienced clinician and pelvic floor early learners.
    6. Utilize a comprehensive paradigm of exercise theory, development, implementation and progressions for a variety of pathologies, such as; pelvic and pelvic floor dysfunction, femoroacetabular syndrome and a host of soft tissue injuries such as groin strains and proximal hamstring strains.
    7. Provide strategies for clinicians to determine when your patient would be better served with a referral to a pelvic health practitioner and what the current evidence is to support your decision.
    8. Create innovative and engaging therapeutic exercise programs (home exercise programs too!) for your patients directed at the pelvis with specific attention to upright and functional positioning.

    Attending a remote course is easy and safe, and you can do it entirely from the security and comfort of your own home or clinic without having to find a lab partner.

    This course is held via Zoom meeting, which is free to download, and will combine prerecorded lecture with live, interactive course time that takes place via online meeting.

    This two-day course, developed by an instructor with extensive experience working with professional athletes, will cover an evidence-based, immediately-applicable skills related to pelvic floor rehabilitation for the athlete, covering treatment philosophies for the pelvis and pelvic floor and global considerations of how these structures contribute to human movement. Topics covered will include urinary incontinence, as well as the intricacies of athletic movement and how energy transference throughout the kinetic chain is crucial to rehabilitation approach, injury prevention and high performance. This course will also cover biomechanics behind human movement of the lumbopelvic-hip complex so the participant will be able to prescribe effective and innovative therapeutic exercise programs. The connection of how pelvic rehab influences LE pathologies such as ACL, PFP and chronic ankle instability will be covered. Although this class has a focus on athletes, these concepts of biomechanics and movement patterning are applicable to all patients in the clinic

    Participants in this course will be sent several prerecorded lectuers to view before the course, and the interactive Zoom meeting will focus on exercise videos and follow-along exercises led by the instructor, followed by question and answer after each exercise is instructed. Participants will want adequate space to perform exercises while following along on the screen.

    This course has been designed to bridge the gap between the sports/orthopedic clinician (certified athletic trainers included) and the experienced pelvic health practitioner and is designed to provide both demographics a challenging and engaging learning experience with a the goal of expanding the general sports and ortho clinician’s understanding of the pelvic floor, as well as challenging the advanced pelvic health therapist to expand their treatments to encompass three-dimensional movements and offering them an arsenal of therapeutic exercises beyond simple local type exercises. Following the course, clinicians who choose not to pursue an advanced clinical skill set of a pelvic health therapist will have a more confident understanding of when a referral to a pelvic health clinician is appropriate. Both groups will leave this course with additional tools for their clinical tool box related to manual therapy and exercise.

    Needed Supplies

    This remote course will include exercises led by the instructor on a Zoom meeting. In order to fully follow along, participants will need to make an exercise system which consists of: an 8-foot yoga strap with a D-ring on the end, and 8-feet of theratubing (red, blue or green will work, choose a challenging color that will not be too challenging for two days of exercise). Participants will need to anchor their bands to something that won’t move, like a door jam. Theraband may work as a substitute, but theratubing is recommended. In addition, participants will need: a yoga block and a small step or box to use for a step up exercise, and a couch cushion or something that will work like an Airex pad on which to kneel. If possible, exercising in front of a mirror in addition to the computer screen will be helpful.

    Contact Hours: 14

    This course is held via Zoom meeting, which is free to download, and will combine prerecorded lecture with live, interactive course time that takes place via online meeting.

    This two-day course, developed by an instructor with extensive experience working with professional athletes, will cover an evidence-based, immediately-applicable skills related to pelvic floor rehabilitation for the athlete, covering treatment philosophies for the pelvis and pelvic floor and global considerations of how these structures contribute to human movement. Topics covered will include urinary incontinence, as well as the intricacies of athletic movement and how energy transference throughout the kinetic chain is crucial to rehabilitation approach, injury prevention and high performance. This course will also cover biomechanics behind human movement of the lumbopelvic-hip complex so the participant will be able to prescribe effective and innovative therapeutic exercise programs. The connection of how pelvic rehab influences LE pathologies such as ACL, PFP and chronic ankle instability will be covered. Although this class has a focus on athletes, these concepts of biomechanics and movement patterning are applicable to all patients in the clinic

    Participants in this course will be sent several prerecorded lectuers to view before the course, and the interactive Zoom meeting will focus on exercise videos and follow-along exercises led by the instructor, followed by question and answer after each exercise is instructed. Participants will want adequate space to perform exercises while following along on the screen.

    This course has been designed to bridge the gap between the sports/orthopedic clinician (certified athletic trainers included) and the experienced pelvic health practitioner and is designed to provide both demographics a challenging and engaging learning experience with a the goal of expanding the general sports and ortho clinician’s understanding of the pelvic floor, as well as challenging the advanced pelvic health therapist to expand their treatments to encompass three-dimensional movements and offering them an arsenal of therapeutic exercises beyond simple local type exercises. Following the course, clinicians who choose not to pursue an advanced clinical skill set of a pelvic health therapist will have a more confident understanding of when a referral to a pelvic health clinician is appropriate. Both groups will leave this course with additional tools for their clinical tool box related to manual therapy and exercise.

    Needed Supplies

    This remote course will include exercises led by the instructor on a Zoom meeting. In order to fully follow along, participants will need to make an exercise system which consists of: an 8-foot yoga strap with a D-ring on the end, and 8-feet of theratubing (red, blue or green will work, choose a challenging color that will not be too challenging for two days of exercise). Participants will need to anchor their bands to something that won’t move, like a door jam. Theraband may work as a substitute, but theratubing is recommended. In addition, participants will need: a yoga block and a small step or box to use for a step up exercise, and a couch cushion or something that will work like an Airex pad on which to kneel. If possible, exercising in front of a mirror in addition to the computer screen will be helpful.

    1. Understand how the pelvic floor integrates into human movement, particularly during higher-level activities such as running, lifting and all types of sporting movements
    2. Appreciate the unique biomechanical interactions that occur between the lumbosacral spine, the pelvis, pelvic floor and the hip complex.
    3. Utilize an evidence-based approach to correctly identify SI joint pain and distinguish it from lumbar or hip dysfunction.
    4. Practice brand new evidence-based approaches for evaluating the hip in a comprehensive three-dimensional method specific to the athletic population.
    5. Provide non-internal manual therapy techniques to influence the performance of the pelvic floor focusing on both the experienced clinician and pelvic floor early learners.
    6. Utilize a comprehensive paradigm of exercise theory, development, implementation and progressions for a variety of pathologies, such as; pelvic and pelvic floor dysfunction, femoroacetabular syndrome and a host of soft tissue injuries such as groin strains and proximal hamstring strains.
    7. Provide strategies for clinicians to determine when your patient would be better served with a referral to a pelvic health practitioner and what the current evidence is to support your decision.
    8. Create innovative and engaging therapeutic exercise programs (home exercise programs too!) for your patients directed at the pelvis with specific attention to upright and functional positioning.

    Attending a remote course is easy and safe, and you can do it entirely from the security and comfort of your own home or clinic without having to find a lab partner.

    Price: $425
    Experience Level: Beginner
    Contact Hours: 14

    This course is held via Zoom meeting, which is free to download, and will combine prerecorded lecture with live, interactive course time that takes place via online meeting.

    This two-day course, developed by an instructor with extensive experience working with professional athletes, will cover an evidence-based, immediately-applicable skills related to pelvic floor rehabilitation for the athlete, covering treatment philosophies for the pelvis and pelvic floor and global considerations of how these structures contribute to human movement. Topics covered will include urinary incontinence, as well as the intricacies of athletic movement and how energy transference throughout the kinetic chain is crucial to rehabilitation approach, injury prevention and high performance. This course will also cover biomechanics behind human movement of the lumbopelvic-hip complex so the participant will be able to prescribe effective and innovative therapeutic exercise programs. The connection of how pelvic rehab influences LE pathologies such as ACL, PFP and chronic ankle instability will be covered. Although this class has a focus on athletes, these concepts of biomechanics and movement patterning are applicable to all patients in the clinic

    Participants in this course will be sent several prerecorded lectuers to view before the course, and the interactive Zoom meeting will focus on exercise videos and follow-along exercises led by the instructor, followed by question and answer after each exercise is instructed. Participants will want adequate space to perform exercises while following along on the screen.

    This course has been designed to bridge the gap between the sports/orthopedic clinician (certified athletic trainers included) and the experienced pelvic health practitioner and is designed to provide both demographics a challenging and engaging learning experience with a the goal of expanding the general sports and ortho clinician’s understanding of the pelvic floor, as well as challenging the advanced pelvic health therapist to expand their treatments to encompass three-dimensional movements and offering them an arsenal of therapeutic exercises beyond simple local type exercises. Following the course, clinicians who choose not to pursue an advanced clinical skill set of a pelvic health therapist will have a more confident understanding of when a referral to a pelvic health clinician is appropriate. Both groups will leave this course with additional tools for their clinical tool box related to manual therapy and exercise.

    Needed Supplies

    This remote course will include exercises led by the instructor on a Zoom meeting. In order to fully follow along, participants will need to make an exercise system which consists of: an 8-foot yoga strap with a D-ring on the end, and 8-feet of theratubing (red, blue or green will work, choose a challenging color that will not be too challenging for two days of exercise). Participants will need to anchor their bands to something that won’t move, like a door jam. Theraband may work as a substitute, but theratubing is recommended. In addition, participants will need: a yoga block and a small step or box to use for a step up exercise, and a couch cushion or something that will work like an Airex pad on which to kneel. If possible, exercising in front of a mirror in addition to the computer screen will be helpful.

    Upon completion of this continuing education seminar, participants will be able to:

    1. Understand how the pelvic floor integrates into human movement, particularly during higher-level activities such as running, lifting and all types of sporting movements
    2. Appreciate the unique biomechanical interactions that occur between the lumbosacral spine, the pelvis, pelvic floor and the hip complex.
    3. Utilize an evidence-based approach to correctly identify SI joint pain and distinguish it from lumbar or hip dysfunction.
    4. Practice brand new evidence-based approaches for evaluating the hip in a comprehensive three-dimensional method specific to the athletic population.
    5. Provide non-internal manual therapy techniques to influence the performance of the pelvic floor focusing on both the experienced clinician and pelvic floor early learners.
    6. Utilize a comprehensive paradigm of exercise theory, development, implementation and progressions for a variety of pathologies, such as; pelvic and pelvic floor dysfunction, femoroacetabular syndrome and a host of soft tissue injuries such as groin strains and proximal hamstring strains.
    7. Provide strategies for clinicians to determine when your patient would be better served with a referral to a pelvic health practitioner and what the current evidence is to support your decision.
    8. Create innovative and engaging therapeutic exercise programs (home exercise programs too!) for your patients directed at the pelvis with specific attention to upright and functional positioning.

    Attending a remote course is easy and safe, and you can do it entirely from the security and comfort of your own home or clinic without having to find a lab partner.

    Dischiavi

    Dr. Steven Dischiavi is an assistant professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at High Point University.  He is also the Director of Rehabilitation for the Department of Athletics at HPU. Dr. Dischiavi brings over 20 years of experience in sports medicine to Herman & Wallace, including 10 years with a professional sports team. Dr. Dischiavi served as the team physical therapist and certified assistant athletic trainer for the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League from 2004 to 2014, where he gained a specialized treatment approach for the hip and pelvis, which is very applicable to the pelvic health practitioner.  His sports medicine approach to the pelvic floor and hip, combined with the innovative therapeutic exercises that target a global neuromotor movement pattern, will be something the pelvic health practitioner can immediately adopt into their clinical practice.  Dr. Dischiavi’s methods, although originally developed and designed in a sports medicine model, he takes tremendous pride helping pelvic health clinicians apply these methods across the life spans of our patients and clients.

    He holds a relatively rare combination of credentials as a licensed physical therapist and a certified athletic trainer giving him a unique appreciation of the athlete. He also holds a manual therapy certification from the Ola Grimsby Institute.  He is board certified by the American Physical Therapy Association as a Sports Clinical Specialist (SCS).

    Dr. Dischiavi is a faculty member at the Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute.  He has developed his own course that he presents nationally titled Biomechanical Assessment & Treatment of the Hip and Pelvis.

    Dr. Dischiavi is currently pursuing his PhD at the University of Ulster in Ireland under the direction of Dr. Chris Bleakley. His current research focus is on optimizing therapeutic exercises for the hip and pelvis to prevent lower extremity injuries and enhance physical performance.  

    Dr. Dischiavi attended Slippery Rock University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in athletic training. He earned a Master of Physical Therapy from SUNY Upstate Medical University and a Doctor of Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University.

    This two-day course, developed by an instructor with extensive experience working with professional athletes, will cover an evidence-based, immediately-applicable skills related to pelvic floor rehabilitation for the athlete, covering treatment philosophies for the pelvis and pelvic floor and global considerations of how these structures contribute to human movement. Topics covered will include urinary incontinence, as well as the intricacies of athletic movement and how energy transference throughout the kinetic chain is crucial to rehabilitation approach, injury prevention and high performance. This course will also cover biomechanics behind human movement of the lumbopelvic-hip complex so the participant will be able to prescribe effective and innovative therapeutic exercise programs. The connection of how pelvic rehab influences LE pathologies such as ACL, PFP and chronic ankle instability will be covered. Although this class has a focus on athletes, these concepts of biomechanics and movement patterning are applicable to all patients in the clinic

    Lab sessions will give the clinicians an opportunity to perceive human movement through a unique lens of global complexity in a simplified approach. External manual therapy techniques will be instructed. In addition, the course is highlighted with high-quality videos capturing athletes of all levels, particularly professional athletes with whom the instructor has worked.

    This course has been designed to bridge the gap between the sports/orthopedic clinician (certified athletic trainers included) and the experienced pelvic health practitioner and is designed to provide both demographics a challenging and engaging learning experience with a the goal of expanding the general sports and ortho clinician’s understanding of the pelvic floor, as well as challenging the advanced pelvic health therapist to expand their treatments to encompass three-dimensional movements and offering them an arsenal of therapeutic exercises beyond simple local type exercises. Following the course, clinicians who choose not to pursue an advanced clinical skill set of a pelvic health therapist will have a more confident understanding of when a referral to a pelvic health clinician is appropriate. Both groups will leave this course with additional tools for their clinical tool box related to manual therapy and exercise.

    2. Appreciate the unique biomechanical interactions that occur between the lumbosacral spine, the pelvis, pelvic floor and the hip complex.
    3. Utilize an evidence-based approach to correctly identify SI joint pain and distinguish it from lumbar or hip dysfunction.
    4. Practice brand new evidence-based approaches for evaluating the hip in a comprehensive three-dimensional method specific to the athletic population.
    5. Provide non-internal manual therapy techniques to influence the performance of the pelvic floor focusing on both the experienced clinician and pelvic floor early learners.
    6. Utilize a comprehensive paradigm of exercise theory, development, implementation and progressions for a variety of pathologies, such as; pelvic and pelvic floor dysfunction, femoroacetabular syndrome and a host of soft tissue injuries such as groin strains and proximal hamstring strains.
    7. Provide strategies for clinicians to determine when your patient would be better served with a referral to a pelvic health practitioner and what the current evidence is to support your decision.
    8. Create innovative and engaging therapeutic exercise programs (home exercise programs too!) for your patients directed at the pelvis with specific attention to upright and functional positioning.

    In Biomechanical Assessment of the Hip & Pelvis, the participant will learn to apply foundational and high-level principles of sports medicine to rehabilitation, evaluation, and treatment approaches. These principles apply not only to competitive athletes, but also across the life span of the active patient who can benefit from detailed biomechanical and movement analysis. This two-day orthopedic course is designed to elevate the participant’s skill level through advanced training in hip and pelvic biomechanics, functional kinetic chain “slings” created by the muscular system in series, and through use of sports medicine theory and applied science.

    Participants will learn a system for application of detailed evaluation techniques utilizing video assisted observation, assessment of joint mechanics, and functional kinematic evaluation. Excellent videos of patients performing a variety of skills are provided for case examples. Abundant lab opportunities will focus on video analysis, kinesiology concepts, movement analysis, joint-specific assessment, "Manual Movement Therapy," and exercise prescription. Within this functional and specific assessment approach, therapists will be able to identify pathomechanics of the hip and pelvic complex. Also included in this continuing education course is a method for evaluating and addressing dysfunction in the muscular dynamic kinetic chain sling system; biomechanical assessment and therapeutic intervention will consider the myofascial sling as it relates to optimal performance and to functional total limb movement.

    Specific dysfunctions will be discussed in this biomechanics course including hip dysfunction such as femoroacetabular impingement, or FAI, sports hernia or athletic pubalgia, and labral tears. There will also be an emphasis on how the hip and pelvis is a crucial component to successfully conquering patellofemoral dysfunctions. Procedural interventions will be discussed including hip arthroscopy and athletic pubalgia (sports hernia) repairs. Towards rehabilitation of these dysfunctions, the therapist will learn very specific therapeutic exercises, functional movement retraining, and current hip rehabilitation approaches. Come and learn about applied theories of "Pelvic Balancing" and "Manual Movement Therapy." The instructor's extensive experience in working with professional athletes is shared and concepts learned in the class can be immediately applied in the clinic with high-level athletes as well as patients who have any type of movement dysfunction of the pelvic-hip complex. This is a dynamic non-conventional sports medicine approach to biomechanical analysis. Physical therapists are being challenged by ancillary professions such as personal trainers, muscle activation therapists (MAT), and performance specialists all who are using different styles of movement analysis and screening. This course will focus on developing the clinician’s skill set with regard to movement analysis and ultimately functional performance either in sport or ADLs!  This is not a course for just athletes, you’ll be amazed at the applications to children and our geriatric clients.  Human movement is universal, how we use that movement varies throughout the life span.  This course is targeted to the sports medicine practitioner in the outpatient clinic as much as it is to the pelvic health practitioner who doesn’t treat any athletes.  The exercises will be applicable to all groups at all levels, you will have fun as Dr. Dischiavi challenges your traditional mindset with some unique ways at looking at human movement.

    Dischiavi

    Dr. Steven Dischiavi is an assistant professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at High Point University.  He is also the Director of Rehabilitation for the Department of Athletics at HPU. Dr. Dischiavi brings over 20 years of experience in sports medicine to Herman & Wallace, including 10 years with a professional sports team. Dr. Dischiavi served as the team physical therapist and certified assistant athletic trainer for the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League from 2004 to 2014, where he gained a specialized treatment approach for the hip and pelvis, which is very applicable to the pelvic health practitioner.  His sports medicine approach to the pelvic floor and hip, combined with the innovative therapeutic exercises that target a global neuromotor movement pattern, will be something the pelvic health practitioner can immediately adopt into their clinical practice.  Dr. Dischiavi’s methods, although originally developed and designed in a sports medicine model, he takes tremendous pride helping pelvic health clinicians apply these methods across the life spans of our patients and clients.

    He holds a relatively rare combination of credentials as a licensed physical therapist and a certified athletic trainer giving him a unique appreciation of the athlete. He also holds a manual therapy certification from the Ola Grimsby Institute.  He is board certified by the American Physical Therapy Association as a Sports Clinical Specialist (SCS).

    Dr. Dischiavi is a faculty member at the Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute.  He has developed his own course that he presents nationally titled Biomechanical Assessment & Treatment of the Hip and Pelvis.

    Dr. Dischiavi is currently pursuing his PhD at the University of Ulster in Ireland under the direction of Dr. Chris Bleakley. His current research focus is on optimizing therapeutic exercises for the hip and pelvis to prevent lower extremity injuries and enhance physical performance.  

    Dr. Dischiavi attended Slippery Rock University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in athletic training. He earned a Master of Physical Therapy from SUNY Upstate Medical University and a Doctor of Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University.

This course will focus on developing the clinician’s skill set with regard to movement analysis and ultimately functional performance either in sport or ADLs!  This is not a course for just athletes, you’ll be amazed at the applications to children and our geriatric clients.  Human movement is universal, how we use that movement varies throughout the life span.  This course is targeted to the sports medicine practitioner in the outpatient clinic as much as it is to the pelvic health practitioner who doesn’t treat any athletes.  The exercises will be applicable to all groups at all levels, you will have fun as Dr. Dischiavi challenges your traditional mindset with some unique ways at looking at human movement.

    In Biomechanical Assessment of the Hip & Pelvis, the participant will learn to apply foundational and high-level principles of sports medicine to rehabilitation, evaluation, and treatment approaches. These principles apply not only to competitive athletes, but also across the life span of the active patient who can benefit from detailed biomechanical and movement analysis. This two-day orthopedic course is designed to elevate the participant’s skill level through advanced training in hip and pelvic biomechanics, functional kinetic chain “slings” created by the muscular system in series, and through use of sports medicine theory and applied science.

    Participants will learn a system for application of detailed evaluation techniques utilizing video assisted observation, assessment of joint mechanics, and functional kinematic evaluation. Excellent videos of patients performing a variety of skills are provided for case examples. Abundant lab opportunities will focus on video analysis, kinesiology concepts, movement analysis, joint-specific assessment, "Manual Movement Therapy," and exercise prescription. Within this functional and specific assessment approach, therapists will be able to identify pathomechanics of the hip and pelvic complex. Also included in this continuing education course is a method for evaluating and addressing dysfunction in the muscular dynamic kinetic chain sling system; biomechanical assessment and therapeutic intervention will consider the myofascial sling as it relates to optimal performance and to functional total limb movement.

    Specific dysfunctions will be discussed in this biomechanics course including hip dysfunction such as femoroacetabular impingement, or FAI, sports hernia or athletic pubalgia, and labral tears. There will also be an emphasis on how the hip and pelvis is a crucial component to successfully conquering patellofemoral dysfunctions. Procedural interventions will be discussed including hip arthroscopy and athletic pubalgia (sports hernia) repairs. Towards rehabilitation of these dysfunctions, the therapist will learn very specific therapeutic exercises, functional movement retraining, and current hip rehabilitation approaches. Come and learn about applied theories of "Pelvic Balancing" and "Manual Movement Therapy." The instructor's extensive experience in working with professional athletes is shared and concepts learned in the class can be immediately applied in the clinic with high-level athletes as well as patients who have any type of movement dysfunction of the pelvic-hip complex. This is a dynamic non-conventional sports medicine approach to biomechanical analysis. Physical therapists are being challenged by ancillary professions such as personal trainers, muscle activation therapists (MAT), and performance specialists all who are using different styles of movement analysis and screening. This course will focus on developing the clinician’s skill set with regard to movement analysis and ultimately functional performance either in sport or ADLs!  This is not a course for just athletes, you’ll be amazed at the applications to children and our geriatric clients.  Human movement is universal, how we use that movement varies throughout the life span.  This course is targeted to the sports medicine practitioner in the outpatient clinic as much as it is to the pelvic health practitioner who doesn’t treat any athletes.  The exercises will be applicable to all groups at all levels, you will have fun as Dr. Dischiavi challenges your traditional mindset with some unique ways at looking at human movement.

Procedural interventions will be discussed including hip arthroscopy and athletic pubalgia (sports hernia) repairs. Towards rehabilitation of these dysfunctions, the therapist will learn very specific therapeutic exercises, functional movement retraining, and current hip rehabilitation approaches. Come and learn about applied theories of "Pelvic Balancing" and "Manual Movement Therapy." The instructor's extensive experience in working with professional athletes is shared and concepts learned in the class can be immediately applied in the clinic with high-level athletes as well as patients who have any type of movement dysfunction of the pelvic-hip complex. This is a dynamic non-conventional sports medicine approach to biomechanical analysis. Physical therapists are being challenged by ancillary professions such as personal trainers, muscle activation therapists (MAT), and performance specialists all who are using different styles of movement analysis and screening. This course will focus on developing the clinician’s skill set with regard to movement analysis and ultimately functional performance either in sport or ADLs!  This is not a course for just athletes, you’ll be amazed at the applications to children and our geriatric clients.  Human movement is universal, how we use that movement varies throughout the life span.  This course is targeted to the sports medicine practitioner in the outpatient clinic as much as it is to the pelvic health practitioner who doesn’t treat any athletes.  The exercises will be applicable to all groups at all levels, you will have fun as Dr. Dischiavi challenges your traditional mindset with some unique ways at looking at human movement.

    This four-hour, remote course covers current concepts regarding evaluating and treating the sacroiliac joint (SIJ) and will be taught by Steve Dischiavi, PT, MPT, DPT, SCS, ATC, COMT. Contemporary literature will be provided, with the goal that participants can transition from an outdated examination and treatment approach to a more evidence-based model. The course will cover why therapists need to move towards new paradigm with this region of the body, and an easy-to-follow exam sequence will be provided. The exam sequence will be followed by treatment strategies that align with the methodology of the exam, leaving the clinician with a clear-and-concise treatment strategy. Contemporary links to pain science will be covered as well.

    Attending a remote course is easy and safe, and you can do it entirely from the security and comfort of your own home or clinic without having to find a lab partner.

     

    Important thing to note:

    - Our policy for applying for continuing education credit for remote courses differs from that of our in-person and satellite lab courses. Read the specific language of the policy here. Depending on the state in which you practice, you may need to submit your own application to your state board or approving body should you wish that it be approved for continuing education credit in your state.

    - To attend a remote Herman & Wallace course, registrants will need Zoom video conferencing software. This is a requirement. One can create an account and download the software to their computer at https://zoom.us/

    - We use the Pacific Time Zone for all of our remote course start and end times (this is not the case for in-person and satellite lab locations). Please make a note of this and set your calendar accordingly.

    - A Zoom account is free to create. Before the meeting, we recommend having a practice Zoom session with a friend or colleague so you can test your microphone, video, and internet connection. You can participate in any remote course from the comfort of your home, but will need a stable internet connection in order to participate. We recommend downloading the software and practicing a call with a friend or colleague prior to your course with us. Zoom also offers video tutorials on their website at https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/206618765-Zoom-Video-Tutorials.

    Attending a remote course is easy and safe, and you can do it entirely from the security and comfort of your own home or clinic without having to find a lab partner.

     

    Important thing to note:

    - Our policy for applying for continuing education credit for remote courses differs from that of our in-person and satellite lab courses. Read the specific language of the policy here. Depending on the state in which you practice, you may need to submit your own application to your state board or approving body should you wish that it be approved for continuing education credit in your state.

    - To attend a remote Herman & Wallace course, registrants will need Zoom video conferencing software. This is a requirement. One can create an account and download the software to their computer at https://zoom.us/

    - We use the Pacific Time Zone for all of our remote course start and end times (this is not the case for in-person and satellite lab locations). Please make a note of this and set your calendar accordingly.

    - A Zoom account is free to create. Before the meeting, we recommend having a practice Zoom session with a friend or colleague so you can test your microphone, video, and internet connection. You can participate in any remote course from the comfort of your home, but will need a stable internet connection in order to participate. We recommend downloading the software and practicing a call with a friend or colleague prior to your course with us. Zoom also offers video tutorials on their website at https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/206618765-Zoom-Video-Tutorials.

    Dischiavi

    Dr. Steven Dischiavi is an assistant professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at High Point University.  He is also the Director of Rehabilitation for the Department of Athletics at HPU. Dr. Dischiavi brings over 20 years of experience in sports medicine to Herman & Wallace, including 10 years with a professional sports team. Dr. Dischiavi served as the team physical therapist and certified assistant athletic trainer for the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League from 2004 to 2014, where he gained a specialized treatment approach for the hip and pelvis, which is very applicable to the pelvic health practitioner.  His sports medicine approach to the pelvic floor and hip, combined with the innovative therapeutic exercises that target a global neuromotor movement pattern, will be something the pelvic health practitioner can immediately adopt into their clinical practice.  Dr. Dischiavi’s methods, although originally developed and designed in a sports medicine model, he takes tremendous pride helping pelvic health clinicians apply these methods across the life spans of our patients and clients.

    He holds a relatively rare combination of credentials as a licensed physical therapist and a certified athletic trainer giving him a unique appreciation of the athlete. He also holds a manual therapy certification from the Ola Grimsby Institute.  He is board certified by the American Physical Therapy Association as a Sports Clinical Specialist (SCS).

    Dr. Dischiavi is a faculty member at the Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute.  He has developed his own course that he presents nationally titled Biomechanical Assessment & Treatment of the Hip and Pelvis.

    Dr. Dischiavi is currently pursuing his PhD at the University of Ulster in Ireland under the direction of Dr. Chris Bleakley. His current research focus is on optimizing therapeutic exercises for the hip and pelvis to prevent lower extremity injuries and enhance physical performance.  

    Dr. Dischiavi attended Slippery Rock University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in athletic training. He earned a Master of Physical Therapy from SUNY Upstate Medical University and a Doctor of Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University.

    Important thing to note:

    - Our policy for applying for continuing education credit for remote courses differs from that of our in-person and satellite lab courses. Read the specific language of the policy here. Depending on the state in which you practice, you may need to submit your own application to your state board or approving body should you wish that it be approved for continuing education credit in your state.

    - To attend a remote Herman & Wallace course, registrants will need Zoom video conferencing software. This is a requirement. One can create an account and download the software to their computer at https://zoom.us/

    - We use the Pacific Time Zone for all of our remote course start and end times (this is not the case for in-person and satellite lab locations). Please make a note of this and set your calendar accordingly.

    - A Zoom account is free to create. Before the meeting, we recommend having a practice Zoom session with a friend or colleague so you can test your microphone, video, and internet connection. You can participate in any remote course from the comfort of your home, but will need a stable internet connection in order to participate. We recommend downloading the software and practicing a call with a friend or colleague prior to your course with us. Zoom also offers video tutorials on their website at https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/206618765-Zoom-Video-Tutorials.

    Dr. Steven Dischiavi is an assistant professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at High Point University.  He is also the Director of Rehabilitation for the Department of Athletics at HPU. Dr. Dischiavi brings over 20 years of experience in sports medicine to Herman & Wallace, including 10 years with a professional sports team. Dr. Dischiavi served as the team physical therapist and certified assistant athletic trainer for the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League from 2004 to 2014, where he gained a specialized treatment approach for the hip and pelvis, which is very applicable to the pelvic health practitioner.  His sports medicine approach to the pelvic floor and hip, combined with the innovative therapeutic exercises that target a global neuromotor movement pattern, will be something the pelvic health practitioner can immediately adopt into their clinical practice.  Dr. Dischiavi’s methods, although originally developed and designed in a sports medicine model, he takes tremendous pride helping pelvic health clinicians apply these methods across the life spans of our patients and clients.

    He holds a relatively rare combination of credentials as a licensed physical therapist and a certified athletic trainer giving him a unique appreciation of the athlete. He also holds a manual therapy certification from the Ola Grimsby Institute.  He is board certified by the American Physical Therapy Association as a Sports Clinical Specialist (SCS).

    Dr. Dischiavi is a faculty member at the Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute.  He has developed his own course that he presents nationally titled Biomechanical Assessment & Treatment of the Hip and Pelvis.

    Dr. Dischiavi is currently pursuing his PhD at the University of Ulster in Ireland under the direction of Dr. Chris Bleakley. His current research focus is on optimizing therapeutic exercises for the hip and pelvis to prevent lower extremity injuries and enhance physical performance.  

    Dr. Dischiavi attended Slippery Rock University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in athletic training. He earned a Master of Physical Therapy from SUNY Upstate Medical University and a Doctor of Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University.

    This four-hour, remote course covers current concepts regarding evaluating and treating the sacroiliac joint (SIJ) and will be taught by Steve Dischiavi, PT, MPT, DPT, SCS, ATC, COMT. Contemporary literature will be provided, with the goal that participants can transition from an outdated examination and treatment approach to a more evidence-based model. The course will cover why therapists need to move towards new paradigm with this region of the body, and an easy-to-follow exam sequence will be provided. The exam sequence will be followed by treatment strategies that align with the methodology of the exam, leaving the clinician with a clear-and-concise treatment strategy. Contemporary links to pain science will be covered as well.

    Attending a remote course is easy and safe, and you can do it entirely from the security and comfort of your own home or clinic without having to find a lab partner.

     

    Important thing to note:

    - Our policy for applying for continuing education credit for remote courses differs from that of our in-person and satellite lab courses. Read the specific language of the policy here. Depending on the state in which you practice, you may need to submit your own application to your state board or approving body should you wish that it be approved for continuing education credit in your state.

    - To attend a remote Herman & Wallace course, registrants will need Zoom video conferencing software. This is a requirement. One can create an account and download the software to their computer at https://zoom.us/

    - We use the Pacific Time Zone for all of our remote course start and end times (this is not the case for in-person and satellite lab locations). Please make a note of this and set your calendar accordingly.

    - A Zoom account is free to create. Before the meeting, we recommend having a practice Zoom session with a friend or colleague so you can test your microphone, video, and internet connection. You can participate in any remote course from the comfort of your home, but will need a stable internet connection in order to participate. We recommend downloading the software and practicing a call with a friend or colleague prior to your course with us. Zoom also offers video tutorials on their website at https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/206618765-Zoom-Video-Tutorials.

    Dischiavi

    Dr. Steven Dischiavi is an assistant professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at High Point University.  He is also the Director of Rehabilitation for the Department of Athletics at HPU. Dr. Dischiavi brings over 20 years of experience in sports medicine to Herman & Wallace, including 10 years with a professional sports team. Dr. Dischiavi served as the team physical therapist and certified assistant athletic trainer for the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League from 2004 to 2014, where he gained a specialized treatment approach for the hip and pelvis, which is very applicable to the pelvic health practitioner.  His sports medicine approach to the pelvic floor and hip, combined with the innovative therapeutic exercises that target a global neuromotor movement pattern, will be something the pelvic health practitioner can immediately adopt into their clinical practice.  Dr. Dischiavi’s methods, although originally developed and designed in a sports medicine model, he takes tremendous pride helping pelvic health clinicians apply these methods across the life spans of our patients and clients.

    He holds a relatively rare combination of credentials as a licensed physical therapist and a certified athletic trainer giving him a unique appreciation of the athlete. He also holds a manual therapy certification from the Ola Grimsby Institute.  He is board certified by the American Physical Therapy Association as a Sports Clinical Specialist (SCS).

    Dr. Dischiavi is a faculty member at the Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute.  He has developed his own course that he presents nationally titled Biomechanical Assessment & Treatment of the Hip and Pelvis.

    Dr. Dischiavi is currently pursuing his PhD at the University of Ulster in Ireland under the direction of Dr. Chris Bleakley. His current research focus is on optimizing therapeutic exercises for the hip and pelvis to prevent lower extremity injuries and enhance physical performance.  

    Dr. Dischiavi attended Slippery Rock University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in athletic training. He earned a Master of Physical Therapy from SUNY Upstate Medical University and a Doctor of Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University.

    Acetabular labral tears are reported to be a major cause of hip dysfunction in young to middle-age patients and a primary precursor to hip osteoarthritis. The management of hip injuries in the athletic population "...has rapidly evolved over the past decade with our improved understanding of mechanical hip pathology." (Lynch et al., 2013) Medical and rehabilitation differential diagnosis of the hip involves many options such as labral tear, femoroactebular impingement (FAI), hip capsular laxity/instability, chondral lesions, septic joint or loose body in the joint. New technology allows improved identification of tears and arthroscopic surgical repairs, yet time of injury to diagnosis is still often delayed, making long-term prognosis for hip preservation poor. The risks of arthroscopic surgery, which, according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, are equal to complication rates of open hip surgeries (Arthroscopy, 2013), coupled with the lack of long term follow up studies for arthroscopic procedures, makes conservative therapy a valuable tool. This 2-day continuing education course presents a holistic methodology for the recommended trials of conservative therapy covered in current literature.
    This course will give special attention to identification of differential diagnosis of specific tissues of the hip joint for identification of intra-articular damage or premature joint degeneration. The participant will be able to recognize high-risk populations, common musculoskeletal presentation of patients with hip dysfunction, and how to instruct in optimal recruitment patterns for prevention of long-range debility. Secondary and differential diagnoses of the hip and pelvis will be addressed in order to help the clinician understand how conventional and integrative therapies can be used in combination to provide better outcomes. Hip labrum injury will be addressed in the following clinical categories: injury prevention and wellness, clinical evaluation and diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation, and organizational and professional health and well-being.
    Current surgical methods will also be addressed in this continuing education course in order to provide the clinician with a well-rounded background in the management of labral injuries and related secondary lesions. Therapists in increasing numbers are working with patients who have hip labral injuries prior to and following hip arthroscopic and open surgeries. Utilizing a case study framework, this course will provide you with the opportunity to analyze the evaluation and intervention of the most current methods.

    Current standards of practice in maternal care have been cited as “a human rights failure” in the US1. Not due to the lack of medical services but the overuse of medical interventions during birth,2,3,4 hospitals that have “reduced medical interventions” and have improved “access to woman-centered care have fewer deaths and lower health care costs”1,3,4

    Enter yoga as an ideal paradigm for “woman-centered care” that minimizes the need for technocratic birth, the medicalization of pregnancy and birth as a pathology rather than a natural condition. Patient satisfaction and self-confidence, which also suffers under the current biomedical model, is likewise improved by the self-care and self-empowerment emphasis of yogic medicine and its philosophy.

    Yoga as a contemplative science and practice is a burgeoning field whose evidence-base is fast growing. This course combines pelvic rehabilitation and yoga in order to optimize childbirth outcomes and postpartum rehabilitation.

    Yoga offers an evolutionary paradigm-shift that modernizes standard biomedical prenatal and postpartum care, through the WHO and IOM-endorsed lens of biopsychosocial practice5. Even more is yoga, when informed by rehabilitative science, can advance the creative dialogue of rehabilitation and yoga practice, paving the way for yoga to become an innovative best-care practice in prenatal and postpartum rehabilitative care.

    Prenatal yogic medicine can be used in childbirth education and coaching, as well as postpartum care, and has been shown to improve labor and delivery outcomes, affect genetic transcription and expression, improve HPA Axis regulation and gut microbiome colonization, and can also well address pre-existing or perpetuating issues such as chronic pain, depression, anxiety, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and weight management. All of these comorbid conditions have a vital role in determining rehabilitation outcomes and should be addressed in regular care. However, for example, in comorbid conditions like pelvic pain and depression, pharmacological side effects, and the stigma of seeking mental health treatment can severely diminish adherence to biomedical interventions6. As a mind-body intervention, yoga during pregnancy can increase birth weight, shorten labor, decrease pre-term birth, decrease instrument-assisted birth, reduce perceived pain, stress, anxiety sleep disturbances, and general pregnancy-related discomfort and quality of life physical domains7,8. Yoga offers an optimal evidence-based strategy that can positively affect the underlying neuroendocrine issues that ultimately dictate therapeutic outcomes.

    The WHO recommends that postpartum checkups include screening for back pain, incontinence, hemorrhoids, constipation, fatigue, breast pain, perineal pain, depression, painful intercourse, headaches, bowel problems, and dizziness or fainting. The yogic medicine paradigm can influence all of these conditions through systems-based intervention.

    A combination of didactic lecture and interactive lab formats, including differential diagnosis and general prenatal and postpartum biopsychosocial screening will prepare the clinician to immediately apply the medical therapeutic yoga paradigm of practice. The 2-day course will also include business practice discussion and technical support for developing your new platform and clinical specialty niche in medical therapeutic yoga practice.

    Description:
    Maternal care can and must improve in America. Current standards of practice have been cited as a “human rights failure.”1 We can deduce, then, that the current biomedical model is not meeting the needs of mothers or their babies.

    Patient satisfaction in pregnancy and birth also suffers, with stories of birth trauma, whether physical or emotional, being unfortunately all too common. With a skyrocketing C-section rate at 33% in the US, and more than 50% in Brazil, far above the World Health Organization’s recommended 10% (for reducing mortality), prenatal care is in a full-blown international crisis.

    However, contemplative science has long been a compassionate, culturally sensitive method for improving mindfulness and all-health outcomes. And the use of contemplative science, specifically yoga, in prenatal health has enormous potential and a growing evidence-base that can ameliorate this crisis.

    Yoga offers an evolutionary paradigm-shift that modernizes standard biomedical prenatal and postpartum care, through the WHO and IOM-endorsed lens of biopsychosocial practice.3 Even more is yoga, when informed by rehabilitative science, can advance the creative dialogue of rehabilitation and yoga practice, paving the way for yoga to become an innovative best-care practice in prenatal and postpartum rehabilitative care.

    Prenatal yogic medicine can be used in childbirth education and coaching, as well as postpartum care, and has been shown to improve labor and delivery outcomes, affect genetic transcription and expression, improve HPA Axis regulation and gut microbiome colonization, and can also well address pre-existing or perpetuating issues such as chronic pain, depression, anxiety, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and weight management. All of these comorbid conditions have a vital role in determining rehabilitation outcomes and should be addressed in regular care. However, for example, in comorbid conditions like pelvic pain and depression, pharmacological side effects, and the stigma of seeking mental health treatment can severely diminish adherence to biomedical interventions.4

    As a mind-body intervention, yoga during pregnancy can increase birth weight, shorten labor, decrease pre-term birth, decrease instrument-assisted birth, reduce perceived pain, stress, anxiety sleep disturbances, and general pregnancy-related discomfort and quality of life physical domains.5-6 Yoga offers an optimal evidence-based strategy that can positively affect the underlying neuroendocrine issues that ultimately dictate therapeutic outcomes.

    This course prepares the clinician to handle standard biomedical prenatal care for the pregnant patient as well as biopsychosocial care. Through a didactic and energizing lecture emphasizing interactive labs, this course will prepare the clinician to apply yoga as medicine through the WHO-endorsed biopsychosocial lens of assessment for first, second, and early third trimesters of pregnancy.

    Algorithms for prenatal yoga rehab will also be included to streamline and direct clinical decision-making. The course addresses both low and high-risk pregnancy mind/body management, literature review and real time case analysis for differential diagnosis in both individual and group-based therapy. The 2-day course will also include business practice discussion and technical support for developing your new platform and clinical specialty niche in medical therapeutic yoga practice.

    Description:
    Maternal care can and must improve in America. Current standards of practice have been cited as a “human rights failure.”1 We can deduce, then, that the current biomedical model is not meeting the needs of mothers or their babies.

    Patient satisfaction in pregnancy and birth also suffers, with stories of birth trauma, whether physical or emotional, being unfortunately all too common. With a skyrocketing C-section rate at 33% in the US, and more than 50% in Brazil, far above the World Health Organization’s recommended 10% (for reducing mortality), prenatal care is in a full-blown international crisis.

    However, contemplative science has long been a compassionate, culturally sensitive method for improving mindfulness and all-health outcomes. And the use of contemplative science, specifically yoga, in prenatal health has enormous potential and a growing evidence-base that can ameliorate this crisis.

    Yoga offers an evolutionary paradigm-shift that modernizes standard biomedical prenatal and postpartum care, through the WHO and IOM-endorsed lens of biopsychosocial practice.3 Even more is yoga, when informed by rehabilitative science, can advance the creative dialogue of rehabilitation and yoga practice, paving the way for yoga to become an innovative best-care practice in prenatal and postpartum rehabilitative care.

    Prenatal yogic medicine can be used in childbirth education and coaching, as well as postpartum care, and has been shown to improve labor and delivery outcomes, affect genetic transcription and expression, improve HPA Axis regulation and gut microbiome colonization, and can also well address pre-existing or perpetuating issues such as chronic pain, depression, anxiety, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and weight management. All of these comorbid conditions have a vital role in determining rehabilitation outcomes and should be addressed in regular care. However, for example, in comorbid conditions like pelvic pain and depression, pharmacological side effects, and the stigma of seeking mental health treatment can severely diminish adherence to biomedical interventions.4

    As a mind-body intervention, yoga during pregnancy can increase birth weight, shorten labor, decrease pre-term birth, decrease instrument-assisted birth, reduce perceived pain, stress, anxiety sleep disturbances, and general pregnancy-related discomfort and quality of life physical domains.5-6 Yoga offers an optimal evidence-based strategy that can positively affect the underlying neuroendocrine issues that ultimately dictate therapeutic outcomes.

    This course prepares the clinician to handle standard biomedical prenatal care for the pregnant patient as well as biopsychosocial care. Through a didactic and energizing lecture emphasizing interactive labs, this course will prepare the clinician to apply yoga as medicine through the WHO-endorsed biopsychosocial lens of assessment for first, second, and early third trimesters of pregnancy.

    Algorithms for prenatal yoga rehab will also be included to streamline and direct clinical decision-making. The course addresses both low and high-risk pregnancy mind/body management, literature review and real time case analysis for differential diagnosis in both individual and group-based therapy. The 2-day course will also include business practice discussion and technical support for developing your new platform and clinical specialty niche in medical therapeutic yoga practice.

    Pain is a perception engaging sensory, cognitive and emotional processes. Beliefs, expectations, fear, catastrophizing, childhood stress and trauma, and learning and memory can all modulate a patient’s pain experience. In addition, structural and functional brain changes have been identified in patients with persistent pain that may play a significant role in driving pain chronicity. This multifaceted nature of pain perception requires an equally multifaceted skill set to effectively address the therapeutic needs of patients experiencing pain.

     

    A growing body of medical literature suggests mindfulness training is a treatment strategy that can help address the complexities of pain. Mindfulness training has been shown to reduce pain intensity and unpleasantness, decrease depression and anxiety and improve function and quality of life in patients with persistent pain. These improvements may occur through such means as improved body awareness, stress and emotional regulation, attention control and changes in perspective. In addition, mindfulness training contributes to neuroplastic brain changes including increases in prefrontal cortex and hippocampal activity and decreases in amygdala activity. Such changes can potentially help mitigate neurotoxic effects of stress in these chronic pain-associated brain regions.

     

    This 2-day course provides you with practical, evidence-based treatment strategies to promote your patients’ abilities to self-regulate the stress reaction and self-manage pain. You will learn the science of mindfulness and pain and gain insight into how cognition, emotion and stress impact pain perception. You will practice mindful meditation, body scan and movement and learn skills to apply mindful awareness to teaching patients breathing, body awareness, exercise and the self-regulation of reactions to stress and pain. Experiential exercises help you personally experience the transformative power of mindful awareness. You will return to your clinic with the ability to explain the benefits of mindful awareness to your patients and teach mindfulness-based skills for pain relief that can help both prevent and treat chronic pain conditions. You will be able to draw on mindful listening skills to enhance your therapeutic alliance with your patients. In addition, you will learn mindful self-care practices to avoid burn-out and promote your own well-being.

     

    Audience:

    This course addresses the topic of mindfulness and pain for all specialties (and the generalist!) dealing with pain and is not limited to the pelvic rehab therapist.

     

    Prerequisites:

    None

    Pain is a perception engaging sensory, cognitive and emotional processes. Beliefs, expectations, fear, catastrophizing, childhood stress and trauma, and learning and memory can all modulate a patient’s pain experience. In addition, structural and functional brain changes have been identified in patients with persistent pain that may play a significant role in driving pain chronicity. This multifaceted nature of pain perception requires an equally multifaceted skill set to effectively address the therapeutic needs of patients experiencing pain.

     

    A growing body of medical literature suggests mindfulness training is a treatment strategy that can help address the complexities of pain. Mindfulness training has been shown to reduce pain intensity and unpleasantness, decrease depression and anxiety and improve function and quality of life in patients with persistent pain. These improvements may occur through such means as improved body awareness, stress and emotional regulation, attention control and changes in perspective. In addition, mindfulness training contributes to neuroplastic brain changes including increases in prefrontal cortex and hippocampal activity and decreases in amygdala activity. Such changes can potentially help mitigate neurotoxic effects of stress in these chronic pain-associated brain regions.

     

    This 2-day course provides you with practical, evidence-based treatment strategies to promote your patients’ abilities to self-regulate the stress reaction and self-manage pain. You will learn the science of mindfulness and pain and gain insight into how cognition, emotion and stress impact pain perception. You will practice mindful meditation, body scan and movement and learn skills to apply mindful awareness to teaching patients breathing, body awareness, exercise and the self-regulation of reactions to stress and pain. Experiential exercises help you personally experience the transformative power of mindful awareness. You will return to your clinic with the ability to explain the benefits of mindful awareness to your patients and teach mindfulness-based skills for pain relief that can help both prevent and treat chronic pain conditions. You will be able to draw on mindful listening skills to enhance your therapeutic alliance with your patients. In addition, you will learn mindful self-care practices to avoid burn-out and promote your own well-being.

     

    Audience:

    This course addresses the topic of mindfulness and pain for all specialties (and the generalist!) dealing with pain and is not limited to the pelvic rehab therapist.

    Pain is a perception engaging sensory, cognitive and emotional processes. Beliefs, expectations, fear, catastrophizing, childhood stress and trauma, and learning and memory can all modulate a patient’s pain experience. In addition, structural and functional brain changes have been identified in patients with persistent pain that may play a significant role in driving pain chronicity. This multifaceted nature of pain perception requires an equally multifaceted skill set to effectively address the therapeutic needs of patients experiencing pain.

     

    A growing body of medical literature suggests mindfulness training is a treatment strategy that can help address the complexities of pain. Mindfulness training has been shown to reduce pain intensity and unpleasantness, decrease depression and anxiety and improve function and quality of life in patients with persistent pain. These improvements may occur through such means as improved body awareness, stress and emotional regulation, attention control and changes in perspective. In addition, mindfulness training contributes to neuroplastic brain changes including increases in prefrontal cortex and hippocampal activity and decreases in amygdala activity. Such changes can potentially help mitigate neurotoxic effects of stress in these chronic pain-associated brain regions.

     

    This 2-day course provides you with practical, evidence-based treatment strategies to promote your patients’ abilities to self-regulate the stress reaction and self-manage pain. You will learn the science of mindfulness and pain and gain insight into how cognition, emotion and stress impact pain perception. You will practice mindful meditation, body scan and movement and learn skills to apply mindful awareness to teaching patients breathing, body awareness, exercise and the self-regulation of reactions to stress and pain. Experiential exercises help you personally experience the transformative power of mindful awareness. You will return to your clinic with the ability to explain the benefits of mindful awareness to your patients and teach mindfulness-based skills for pain relief that can help both prevent and treat chronic pain conditions. You will be able to draw on mindful listening skills to enhance your therapeutic alliance with your patients. In addition, you will learn mindful self-care practices to avoid burn-out and promote your own well-being.

    This course addresses the topic of mindfulness and pain for all specialties (and the generalist!) dealing with pain and is not limited to the pelvic rehab therapist.

    Pain is a perception engaging sensory, cognitive and emotional processes. Beliefs, expectations, fear, catastrophizing, childhood stress and trauma, and learning and memory can all modulate a patient’s pain experience. In addition, structural and functional brain changes have been identified in patients with persistent pain that may play a significant role in driving pain chronicity. This multifaceted nature of pain perception requires an equally multifaceted skill set to effectively address the therapeutic needs of patients experiencing pain.

     

    A growing body of medical literature suggests mindfulness training is a treatment strategy that can help address the complexities of pain. Mindfulness training has been shown to reduce pain intensity and unpleasantness, decrease depression and anxiety and improve function and quality of life in patients with persistent pain. These improvements may occur through such means as improved body awareness, stress and emotional regulation, attention control and changes in perspective. In addition, mindfulness training contributes to neuroplastic brain changes including increases in prefrontal cortex and hippocampal activity and decreases in amygdala activity. Such changes can potentially help mitigate neurotoxic effects of stress in these chronic pain-associated brain regions.

     

    This 2-day course provides you with practical, evidence-based treatment strategies to promote your patients’ abilities to self-regulate the stress reaction and self-manage pain. You will learn the science of mindfulness and pain and gain insight into how cognition, emotion and stress impact pain perception. You will practice mindful meditation, body scan and movement and learn skills to apply mindful awareness to teaching patients breathing, body awareness, exercise and the self-regulation of reactions to stress and pain. Experiential exercises help you personally experience the transformative power of mindful awareness. You will return to your clinic with the ability to explain the benefits of mindful awareness to your patients and teach mindfulness-based skills for pain relief that can help both prevent and treat chronic pain conditions. You will be able to draw on mindful listening skills to enhance your therapeutic alliance with your patients. In addition, you will learn mindful self-care practices to avoid burn-out and promote your own well-being.

     

    Audience:

    This course addresses the topic of mindfulness and pain for all specialties (and the generalist!) dealing with pain and is not limited to the pelvic rehab therapist.

    Pain is a perception engaging sensory, cognitive and emotional processes. Beliefs, expectations, fear, catastrophizing, childhood stress and trauma, and learning and memory can all modulate a patient’s pain experience. In addition, structural and functional brain changes have been identified in patients with persistent pain that may play a significant role in driving pain chronicity. This multifaceted nature of pain perception requires an equally multifaceted skill set to effectively address the therapeutic needs of patients experiencing pain.

     

    A growing body of medical literature suggests mindfulness training is a treatment strategy that can help address the complexities of pain. Mindfulness training has been shown to reduce pain intensity and unpleasantness, decrease depression and anxiety and improve function and quality of life in patients with persistent pain. These improvements may occur through such means as improved body awareness, stress and emotional regulation, attention control and changes in perspective. In addition, mindfulness training contributes to neuroplastic brain changes including increases in prefrontal cortex and hippocampal activity and decreases in amygdala activity. Such changes can potentially help mitigate neurotoxic effects of stress in these chronic pain-associated brain regions.

     

    This 2-day course provides you with practical, evidence-based treatment strategies to promote your patients’ abilities to self-regulate the stress reaction and self-manage pain. You will learn the science of mindfulness and pain and gain insight into how cognition, emotion and stress impact pain perception. You will practice mindful meditation, body scan and movement and learn skills to apply mindful awareness to teaching patients breathing, body awareness, exercise and the self-regulation of reactions to stress and pain. Experiential exercises help you personally experience the transformative power of mindful awareness. You will return to your clinic with the ability to explain the benefits of mindful awareness to your patients and teach mindfulness-based skills for pain relief that can help both prevent and treat chronic pain conditions. You will be able to draw on mindful listening skills to enhance your therapeutic alliance with your patients. In addition, you will learn mindful self-care practices to avoid burn-out and promote your own well-being.

    This course addresses the topic of mindfulness and pain for all specialties (and the generalist!) dealing with pain and is not limited to the pelvic rehab therapist.

    Pain is a perception engaging sensory, cognitive and emotional processes. Beliefs, expectations, fear, catastrophizing, childhood stress and trauma, and learning and memory can all modulate a patient’s pain experience. In addition, structural and functional brain changes have been identified in patients with persistent pain that may play a significant role in driving pain chronicity. This multifaceted nature of pain perception requires an equally multifaceted skill set to effectively address the therapeutic needs of patients experiencing pain.

     

    A growing body of medical literature suggests mindfulness training is a treatment strategy that can help address the complexities of pain. Mindfulness training has been shown to reduce pain intensity and unpleasantness, decrease depression and anxiety and improve function and quality of life in patients with persistent pain. These improvements may occur through such means as improved body awareness, stress and emotional regulation, attention control and changes in perspective. In addition, mindfulness training contributes to neuroplastic brain changes including increases in prefrontal cortex and hippocampal activity and decreases in amygdala activity. Such changes can potentially help mitigate neurotoxic effects of stress in these chronic pain-associated brain regions.

     

    This 2-day course provides you with practical, evidence-based treatment strategies to promote your patients’ abilities to self-regulate the stress reaction and self-manage pain. You will learn the science of mindfulness and pain and gain insight into how cognition, emotion and stress impact pain perception. You will practice mindful meditation, body scan and movement and learn skills to apply mindful awareness to teaching patients breathing, body awareness, exercise and the self-regulation of reactions to stress and pain. Experiential exercises help you personally experience the transformative power of mindful awareness. You will return to your clinic with the ability to explain the benefits of mindful awareness to your patients and teach mindfulness-based skills for pain relief that can help both prevent and treat chronic pain conditions. You will be able to draw on mindful listening skills to enhance your therapeutic alliance with your patients. In addition, you will learn mindful self-care practices to avoid burn-out and promote your own well-being.

    This course addresses the topic of mindfulness and pain for all specialties (and the generalist!) dealing with pain and is not limited to the pelvic rehab therapist.
