Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute says
Several studies describe the utilization of myofascial release or myofascial trigger point therapy for the treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction. Application of myofascial therapy for pelvic dysfunction requires a detailed knowledge of pelvic anatomy as well as exquisite palpation skills. This continuing education course is designed to provide comprehensive knowledge concerning the connective tissue that interacts with the muscular system of the trunk, hip, pelvis and lower extremity. This course is designed for the therapist who treats lumbopelvic, hip and lower extremity conditions in patients who present with primary or secondary pelvic dysfunction and symptoms.

Material will be presented that includes the science of and evidence behind myofascial release, relevant anatomical structures, clinical reasoning and an extensive number of treatment techniques. Lab activities focus on both exernal (surface) and internal vaginal or rectal techniques, and include assessment of connective tissue mobility with an emphasis on trigger points, asymmetry and tissue tension abnormalities affecting the joints of the pelvis and lower extremity and their associated fascial structures. Instructed techniques will include direct and indirect treatment options to address a variety of myofascial dysfunction. The great variety of skills presented in this course will allow the therapist to design an appropriate manual therapy approach for each patient presentation.

The primary goal of this course is to provide the clinician who is treating women and men with pelvic dysfunction additional tools that can immediately incorporated into clinical practice. Throughout the course, clinical reasoning will be addressed with emphasis on various presentations of pelvic dysfunction.
