Pudendal Neuralgia and Nerve Entrapment: Evaluation and Treatment
Pudendal neuralgia is defined as ‘a painful neuropathic condition involving the dermatome of the pudendal nerve’ (Robert, et al, 1998) but there are few diagnoses that cause as much confusion and fear for both patient and provider. Simultaneously overused as a diagnosis for pelvic pain and yet misunderstood by both physicians and therapists, diagnosis (and differential diagnosis) of Pudendal Neuralgia can be a complex, chronic and often costly source of pelvic dysfunction for many of our patients, male and female, young and old. The aim of this course is to thoroughly engage the practitioner with the anatomy, physiology, function and dysfunctions of this condition and to provide a broad spectrum treatment approach using the best clinical evidence available.
This remote, live continuing education course is a two-day seminar offered live on Zoom and is designed to provide a thorough overview to evaluating and treating patients with Pudendal Dysfunction, including Neuropathy, Neuralgia and Entrapment. The course includes a pre-recorded lecture which is reviewed before the meeting, and then two days of live remote learning presented by an instructor. Lecture will include a review of pelvic neural anatomy, as well as a review of multi-disciplinary treatments. This course presents an integrative approach to pelvic pain; psychosexual health issues, neuroscience and mindfulness will also be addressed. Labs will be interactive and cover spine, lumbopelvic/hip complex, neurodynamics and therapeutic techniques to integrate orthopaedic, pelvic floor and biopsychosocial approaches into the subjective and objective assessment. Once completing the course, the healthcare practitioner will have improved pudendal neuralgia diagnostic capabilities, and will have improved impact in treating patients with pudendal nerve/pelvic floor muscle dysfunctions.
