Differential Diagnostics of Chronic Pelvic Pain - New York City


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

According to Hoppenfeld in his text on Physical Examination of the Spine & Extremities, accurate diagnosis depends on knowledge of functional anatomy, diligent observation, and a thorough examination. For the patient who presents with chronic pelvic pain, it is common to report pain and dysfunction in multiple body segments such as the spine, pelvis and hips. This continuing education course prepares the participant to apply differential diagnostic skills for chronic pelvic pain, allowing for more accurate intervention strategies that are directed to specific tissues.

Through multiple anatomy lectures and detailed palpation labs, a therapist's ability to "know exactly where you are" is enhanced through this class. And while knowledge of anatomy and skills in examination are critical in finding the source of a patient's pain, the influence of the nervous system must be considered for its impact on a patient's presentation.The influence of the nervous system on pain is learned in this course through study of the somatic and autonomic nervous system anatomy, function, and relationship to the pelvis. A therapist will learn systematic methods for examination of the joints, muscles, fascia, and nervous system and will be given tools to record findings of specific assessments.
