Time to dig deeper. The Diaphragm/Pelvic Floor Piston for Adult Populations: Part One (aka The Piston Science Series online) provided a foundational framework to guide patients towards creating an inside-out strategy of dynamic stability by balancing muscular relationships and pressure systems with a whole lot of brainwork and motor control. The goal: to address pelvic health, musculoskeletal and performance issues simultaneously.
Now let’s take the next step and explore how to apply the ideas more specifically into different patient populations. Piston Science: Part Two will explore clinical decision making in real time with 2 live patients over 2-days. We will collectively participate in patient interviewing, assessment and generation of treatment ideas, treatment planning and progressions, and developing cueing options. Grow your clinical “theology” by critically thinking through guiding clinical questions: What’s your goal? What’s their goal? How do you treat the why and who, not the what? What are the limits of your theology? When do you refer out? The cases will be selected by the hosts, so it will be a bit like a box of chocolates, “you never know what you’re gonna get” (i.e., no guarantee of diagnoses to be covered). If you are local you can also suggest a patient. However, the goal will be that the selected patients will have a variety of pelvic health (incontinence, prolapse), post-pregnancy (diastasis, pain) issues and fitness goals (running, crossfit). Come and be ready to think and participate.
