Pelvic Floor: Dysfunction, Assessment and Treatment
Sat, 10 December 2016, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM EST
Kegels and core training doesn't cut it anymore.
Have you ever had a client suddenly fall off the face of the earth and never book another training session with you again?
Have you instructed a group session where some members refuse to skip, jump or do any exercise with impact?
Do you have clients who have had children and express pain, discomfort or incontinence with they sneeze, exercise or do chores around the house?
Are you not sure how to REALLY help them?
This 3 hr intensive workshop is for you.
Pelvic dysfunction affects clients who are: post-natal, competitive athletes (cyclists, gymnastics, figure skating, triathletes), women AND men.
Geared towards physiotherapists, personal trainers, fitness instructors, yoga instructors, doulas and health-care providers, this workshop gives you the tools to properly assess pelvic floor dysfunction, organ prolapse and heightened abdominal compression. Historically, instructors have been taught to instruct their patients and clients to perform MORE abdominal exercises, more crunches, more side raises, kegels or pilates. Now, with leading research on the subject, we know that this in fact hinders the process and accomplishes the opposite. Attend this workshop to learn the modern way to assist clients and patients in the weight room, in your therapy clinic and in your class.
Kerri from recore.systems will lead you down the path of core training, as it has existed in the past, present and where it needs to go now. Being a die-hard pilates instructor early in her career, to a personal trainer, exercise specialist, CHEK practitioner and hypopressives instructor now, Kerri understands dysfunction, assessment as it relates to function and movement more than anyone in her field today. Having gone through the pain of organ prolapse herself after the birth of her daughter, she can identify with the client beyond imaginging what it must be like.
Breakdown of the Workshop:
1:00pm-1:30pm: THEORY and History of the CORE
- how has core training evolved over time, where are we today and what needs to change
- theory of decompression of the abdominal core
- what does compression, organ prolapse and incontinence look like, feel like and what is happening EXACTLY
- if a client does not open up to you about their issues, how can you identify issues that are going on?
- full body assessments to determine dysfunction
- how the core's compressive forces limits or propels the rest of the body's function
- assessment guide to take and use on all your clients
- once dysfunction is identified, what exercises do you implement and which ones do you avoid
- at what point in the training cycle or recovery cycle do these exercises need to be present
- what are the proper regressions and progressions for the core and for decompression
- how to re-assess at particular training milestones
- we'll talk specific clients, clear up any questions and discuss next steps for you come Monday morning
