Aims & Objectives

Basic
240 minutes
Rehabilitation & Conservative Treatments
pelvic floor assessment Evaluation tools
Clinicians and researchers interested in updating their knowledge of pelvic floor muscle (PFM) evaluations and the types of information that can be obtain using current PFM assessment tools

Aim: To review evidence-based literature on pelvic floor muscle evaluation tools, from digital evaluation to imaging.

Objectives:

  1. To highlight the importance of undertaking a thorough evaluation of pelvic floor musculature in women with urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and vulvo-vaginal pain

  2. To present evidence-based approaches to the evaluation process, using valid and reliable clinical tools: digital evaluation, pressure, EMG, dynamometry and US

  3. To present the relationship between pelvic-floor morphological deficit and dysfunction, and their symptomatology and diagnosis

  4. To present correlations between pelvic-floor morphological deficit or dysfunction and pelvic-floor rehabilitation prognosis
