eLearning Series: Claudia Hacad PT, M.Sc., BCB-PMD on Pelvic Floor Dysfunctions

After an overwhelming interest in Thought Tech’s educational webinar series this summer we have decided to continue our educational platform by providing clinicians in the field with Thought Tech’s eLearning series based on specific topic themes.

The themes will be broken down to specific how to topics and will consist of two hours per topic. 

We are excited to announce the first series: Claudia Hacad on Pelvic Floor Dysfunctions

Presenting 5, two-hour webinars Tuesdays, beginning Sept.29, 2020 from 13:00 – 15:00 hrs EDT/EST on the topics of:

PART 1: Urinary Incontinence | Sept. 29 - Register Now!
PART 2: Post Prostatectomy Urinary Incontinence | Oct. 6 - Register Now!
PART 3: Sexual Dysfunction | Oct. 13 - Register Now!
PART 4: Chronic Pelvic Pain | Oct. 20 - Register Now!
PART 5: Constipation and Fecal Incontinence | Oct. 27 - Register Now!

Voiding dysfunction and pelvic floor disorders in men and women cause a high impact in their social, labor, sexual and general quality of life.

According to International Continence Society(ICS), American Urological Association (AUA) and European Association of Urology (EAU) Guidelines, SEMG Biofeedback is recommended to be included as a conservative treatment for subjects with stress urinary incontinence (SUI), fecal incontinence (FI), overactive bladder (OAB) and chronic pelvic pain (CPP) and sexual dysfunction (SD) and also recommended as first line conservative treatment for subjects with puborectalis paradoxical constipation(PPC).

As an assessment tool, SEMG signal can give us insight on the condition and function of the neuromuscular system and help pinpoint deficits.

As a training tool, SEMG is a powerful tool, allowing the user to gain awareness of their own voluntary contraction and relaxation efforts and regain control of these functions.

These webinars will provide theoretical updates and practical skills-based evidence on the SEMG Biofeedback Assessment and Treatment of Incontinence, CPP and Sexuality in men and women.

At the end of these webinars, participants should be able to better:

  • Understand the issues related to the pathophysiology of UI, FI, OAB, CPP, PPC and SD in men and women.
  • Read and interpret the different aspects of the SEMG signal, such as MVC, onset time, release time, fatigue indicators and more in the assessment and treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction.
  • Discuss proper strategies to characterize pelvic floor dysfunction associated to musculoskeletal disorders and the therapeutic options for improving the symptoms of men and women living with UI, FI, OAB, CPP, PCC and SD based on the most recent scientific evidences.
  • Use the different feedback types and goal settings to help patients practice, train and regain control and strength of the muscles involved.

Who should attend?

Physical Therapy professionals and undergraduates with knowledge in basic sciences and interested in expanding their knowledge in physiotherapy practice focusing on pelvic floor dysfunctions.

Cost to participant : $60.00 US per webinar.

Participants can choose to register for all or only specific ones.
