Urinary incontinence is an important woman’s health issue that can greatly affect quality of life. Statistics show that one woman in four experiences trouble with urinary incontinence. An important number of those afflicted with this condition can be much improved with the help of the pelvic floor physiotherapist.

The 2-day practical portion of this course incudes internal evaluation and treatment techniques, involving vaginal and anal palpation.  After explanation and video demonstration participants work in groups, alternating in roles as therapist and as patient under the supervision and guidance of an experienced instructor.  Those who are unable to have vaginal or anal palpations (ex: pregnant woman, cis-gender male, etc.) are required to bring  a friend or model.
