This course will give you an introductory understanding of the pelvic floor of vulva/vagina owners. Dr. Felicia Chaves PT, DPT will explain how pelvic floor therapy and related approaches can reduce pain with sexual activity. Felicia will offer an in-depth review of pelvic floor anatomy and physiology for basic pelvic floor function and understand how they impact sexual function. She’ll help debunk myths and misunderstandings about sexual health, and review various factors that contribute to pelvic pain with sexual activity. Felicia will introduce typical pelvic floor therapy treatments and common therapeutic tools used for home exercise programs through case studies and examples. By the end of this course you will be able to better know when a client needs a pelvic health physical or occupational therapist, what questions to ask to properly screen for pelvic floor dysfunction, and have a better understanding of physiological factors that drive pain with sexual intercourse and sexual activity.
