Learn to immediately incorporate the use of rehabilitative ultrasound imaging into their evaluation and treatment plans for patients with diagnoses including lumbo-pelvic pain and instability, pelvic organ prolapse, and urinary incontinence.
The course comprises of lectures and labs that present both ideal and abnormal responses of real-time imaging of the transverse abdominals, rectus abdominis, deep multifidus, levator ani, bladder, bladder neck, urethra, and vagina during contraction and valsalva. Imaging methods used during labs will consist of transabdominal viewing as well as transperineal/translabial viewing methods. Prior experience with perineal and vaginal assessments is required to take the course. During labs, participants will be able to practice using machines provided by our co-sponsor, The Prometheus Group. An onsite representative from Prometheus will also be available to answer questions about the equipment.
