Biofeedback for Pelvic Muscle Dysfunction
This continuing education seminar is a 1-day course that introduces the participant to the use of biofeedback when treating bladder, bowel, and pelvic floor disorders. Participants will become acquainted with an amazing tool to enhance their practice. In this course, we will discuss the history, background/basics, and benefits of biofeedback when used to treat bladder, bowel, overactive pelvic floor, and other pelvic floor disorders. We will also review case studies with EMG signal analysis with the help of audience participation. The focus of this course will be introducing biofeedback equipment and software, administering a biofeedback assessment, conducting a treatment session, and patient instruction/education utilizing live demonstrations with audience participation. In the live lab, participants will experience using a self-inserted vaginal or rectal sensor and will practice sEMG assessments and treatments. Resources for additional training and board certification in this area of practice will be provided. Lab instructors are board-certified through the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance in Pelvic Muscle Dysfunction. This course is also approved for BCIA’s recertification hours for board certification. There are pre-recorded lectures that must be viewed prior to the live course.
