The pelvic floor has long been understood as a component of the ‘core’. However, integrative solutions that make the pelvic floor relevant in sports medicine, orthopedic, fitness, and performance programming have been elusive. The high rates of incontinence amongst fit females demands that all rehab and fitness professionals who work with women adopt new rehab and training models that are inclusive of the pelvic floor. Transitioning women back to the intense demands of fitness requires new ideas that move us beyond Kegels-only programs.
In this 2.5 hr online course, the integrative concepts of the Diaphragm/Pelvic Floor Piston system are applied to forge a new solution, including practical and relevant strategies for professionals that work with women who want to be fit.
A holistic, neuromuscular model is presented to train the system that controls the repetitive impact loading, high IAP demands, and proximal hip control needed in running, weight training, and sport. This integrative, system-based approach simultaneously addresses incontinence, orthopedic and performance issues.
A case study of a female CrossFitter with sport related stress urinary incontinence and a complex orthopedic history will be presented to synthesize concepts and demonstrate clinical application. read more
