Biofeedback for Pelvic Floor Muscle Dysfunction
May 15, 2022 @ 6:30 am - 3:30 pm
Biofeedback for Pelvic Floor Muscle Dysfunction: Shenandoah University’s Division of Occupational Therapy is delighted to host the Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute’s Biofeedback for Pelvic Muscle Dysfunction satellite lab course. This one-day course introduces the participant to the use of biofeedback when treating bladder, bowel, and pelvic floor disorders. Participants will become acquainted with an amazing tool to enhance their practice. We will review case studies with EMG signal analysis with the help of audience participation. The focus of this course will be introducing biofeedback equipment and software, administering a biofeedback assessment, conducting a treatment session, and patient instruction/education utilizing live demonstrations with audience participation. In the live lab, participants will experience using a self-inserted sensor, and will practice sEMG assessments and treatments. Sarah S. Sidar, MS, OTR/L, will be the lab instructor for the course, and is working toward biofeedback certification for pelvic muscle dysfunction through the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance in Pelvic Muscle Dysfunction. This course is approved for BCIA’s recertification hours. There are 3 hours of pre-recorded lectures that are required prior to the live 8-hour lab. This continuing education seminar is targeted to physical therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapist assistants, registered nurses, nurse midwives, physician assistants, and other rehabilitation professionals. This is a BEGINNER level course which will be held in Scholar Plaza, room 410. Any questions? Contact Sarah S. Sidar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
