  • New APTA Resource on Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Available Online

    New FAQs developed by APTA, in cooperation with the Section on Women’s Health, explain the physical therapist's role in managing patients with pelvic floor dysfunction, describe various treatment methods, and outline the procedure codes used when reporting these services. The document also provides examples of the elements that should be included in visits and encounters for pelvic floor dysfunction. 


    • FYI, After one of my workshops on the sacroiliac joint, one of the participants who taught incontinence training in Hong Kong, told me that after full correction of SIJ dysfunction, many of her patients no longer needed the training. More information on my website at www.thelowback.com, How it works, why it hurts and how to fix it.

    • Hi Kaley - You may want to try our "Find a PT" resource at www.moveforwardpt.com (it's one of the choices at the top). You can select your location and distance to be included in the search, and then filter by area of focus. One of the choices is "women's health"--a possible start. Best of luck to you.

    • I am a 1st year DPT student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We are in the process of selecting our 9 week clinical internship sites for 2018 and I am interested in finding a location or a CI who specializes in pelvic floor PT. I would be particularly interested in anyone who does or has interest in working with survivors of sexual trauma, and/or works in conjunction with mental health services to treat pelvic floor dysfunctions. I am willing to travel anywhere in the country, so any ideas are welcome. Thanks very much!
