Pelvic issues are no fun for the person experiencing them. Sadly, pelvic issues can also make clinicians squirm too! This 2-day course will pull the curtain back on several pelvic issues that are very common, and often overlap with complaints people are more likely to seek care for.

Join this 2-day workshop to learn about common pelvic issues, and how to incorporate care within your scope of practice. This workshop is ideal for people who treat people with pelvises and who do not do (or do not want to do) internal exams.

Topics to be covered will included: urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, constipation, sexual dysfunction, pregnancy/post-partum and more.

Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will be able to describe relevant female and male anatomy.
  2. Participants will be able to identify common pelvic health/women's health issues that may be impacting their clients.
  3. Participants will be able to describe appropriate interventions for common pelvic health issues, as well as appropriate referrals

About the Instructor

Sarah Haag, DPT, graduated from Marquette University in 2002 with a Master’s of Physical Therapy. Sarah has pursued an interest in treating the spine, pelvis with a specialization in women’s and men’s health. Over the past 8 years, Sarah has seized every opportunity available to her in order to further her understanding of the human body, and the various ways it can seem to fall apart in order to sympathetically and efficiently facilitate a return to optimal function.

Sarah was awarded the Certificate of Achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy (CAPP) from the Section on Women’s Health. She went on to get her Doctorate of Physical Therapy and Masters of Science in Women’s Health from Rosalind Franklin University in 2008. In 2009 she was awarded a Board Certification as a specialist in women’s health (WCS).

Sarah also completed a Certification in Mechanical Diagnosis Therapy from the Mckenzie Institute in 2010.  Most recently, Sarah completed a 200 hour Yoga Instructor Training Program, and is now a  Registered Yoga Instructor. Sarah plans to integrate yoga into her rehabilitation programs, as well as teach small, personalized classes.

Sarah looks at education, and a better understanding of the latest evidence in the field of physical therapy, as the best way to help people learn about their conditions, and to help people learn to take care of themselves throughout the life span.
