Navigating the Pelvic Pain Client in a Telerehab World
This 1-hour webinar will focus on navigating pelvic pain in a telerehab (telehealth) world.
Pelvic pain could be caused for a number of different reasons, descriptions well beyond the scope of this webinar, but it is important to know that via telehealth, we are able to see these clients who many once thought were only treatable in person.
In this webinar, we will dive into pain science and understand what chronic pain is, identify how telehealth can be one of the best options at varying points in the care of these clients, and determine appropriate screening and assessment methods for these clients.
- Identify what pelvic pain is and how it can affect individuals
- Identify why telehealth is a viable tool for addressing pelvic pain issues
- Introduce pain science models and understand why this knowledge is instrumental in treating the pelvic health client
- Introduce ways to effectively screen the pelvic pain clients
