In this course, we deep dive into all the V diagnoses: vulvodynia, vestibulodynia, vaginismus and vulvar/vaginal atrophy and you will learn why it is important to be specific in your assessment and treatment. As physical and occupational therapists, we can hit a plateau in progress without fully understanding the medical interventions that would benefit the patient. This course presents the current research that is being utilized in current practice by leading sexual medicine providers. Learn how to assess for vulvar dermatoses such as lichen sclerosus and lichen planus, to distinguish differences between the many different causes of vulvodynia, including the biggest aggravator to dyspareunia, the true culprit: vestibulodynia.
This course has it all. Heavy in pelvic floor treatment strategies while also looking at the lumbopelvic region with a discerning orthopedic approach to provide comprehensive care to these patients. Vestibulodynia: A PelvicOrtho Approach was Alcove Pelvic Health Education’s very first course 8 years ago and we are excited to be sharing this important information. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to elevate your assessment and treatment skills!
