CEU Course Description

Pelvic health has long been considered an area of specialty within physical therapy practice. But a growing number of occupational therapists are helping people with pelvic health concerns, also known as pelvic floor dysfunction, live fuller and more active lives. Occupational therapists are highly focused on function, so their aim in working with people who have pelvic floor dysfunction may differ slightly from the role of a physical therapist in this practice area. Regardless, the intent of any sort of pelvic floor therapy is to relieve pain and improve a person’s sexual, urinary, and bowel functions. Pelvic health may be addressed in an outpatient setting if a patient presents with certain symptoms, but it has specifically become popular when implemented within the home or using a virtual coaching model. Due to the holistic, client-centered nature of occupational therapy, OT’s are well suited to address pelvic health concerns in patients of all ages and backgrounds.
