Come warm yourselves with some Delicious Midwinter Mulled Wine and mingle with your colleagues as we peruse the following pelvic floor problems of the world. Two of the co authors (Jennifer Kruger and Chantale Dumoulin) will be presenting at the APA conference being held right here in Radelaide in October!
Assessing exercises recommended for women at risk of pelvic floor disorders using multivariate statistical techniques (Tian et al 2017)
Randomized clinical trial of multimodal physiotherapy treatment compared to overnight lidocaine ointment in women with provoked vestibulodynia: Design and methods (Morin et al 2016).
Also featuring a bonus article hot off the press
Assessment of abdominal and pelvic floor muscle function among continent and incontinent athletes. (Dos Santos et al 2019)
A great night to mingle….and did we mention mulled wine?
Registants will be sent journal articles prior to the evening
A – Z of Disordered Breathing A refreshing review of Disordered Breathing from a Multidisciplinary Perspective: From Anatomy to Pathophysiology and Biomechanics, linking into Assessment, Treatment and Ongoing Management from a Multi-Disciplinary Team Perspective. Case studies will showcase MDT management approach in action.
Disordered breathing is the keystone of most respiratory + cardiac conditions, often historically being the poor relative and under treated. New modalities of treatment have raised its profile and new evidence has also linked it as a topic of interest to clinicians practicing in other musculoskeletal, neurological, womens health areas when research has increasingly shown it to be a prevalent factor requiring assessment and treatment to optimise patients physical well being.
This lecture is available to qualified and AHPRA registered physiotherapists and may be also available to other AHPRA registered practitioners.
The ACT Branch Council along with Musculoskeletal, Sports, Pain, Gerontology and Orthopaedic Groups would like to invite you to join us in discovering the clinical reasoning behind interesting cases.
Titled Pain Physiotherapist and ACT Branch Councillor Matt Croger and ACT Branch Council new grad representative Nathan Bizjak will host a panel who will provide insight into a case area of their interest. We will be exploring the brachial plexus, the older patient with rotator cuff dysfunction and the throwing shoulder.
This course will have a large focus on the practical application of specific physiotherapy skills required to effectively manage pregnancy related pelvic girdle pain (PR-PGP). Using the most recent evidence, the course will review the functional anatomy and biomechanics of the pelvic girdle, and the physiological changes relevant to PR-PGP. This course will teach specific assessment and treatment techniques for PR-PGP (including the sacro-iliac and pubic symphysis joints). It will also include how to prescribe exercises and the relevant contra-indications for this patient group, including pelvic floor muscle training. There will be case studies reviewed at the end of the course to demonstrate and reinforce the clinical reasoning process behind effectively managing patients with PR-PGP.
Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (GTPS) is a common condition that affects up to 25% of women over the age of 40. It presents as lateral hip pain and is most likely due to gluteal tendinopathy. GPS is not only associated with impairments around the hip, but also with significant negative psychosocial impacts including reduced fulltime employment and poor mental health. GTPS can be hard to treat. The current evidence supports interventions such as exercise and appropriate education (load management).
