2-day Workshop
April 12-13

Pelvic floor disorders in men and women cause a high impact in their social, labor, sexual and general quality of life. According to International Continence Society(ICS), American Urological Association (AUA) and European Association of Urology (EAU) Guidelines, Physiotherapy (PT) interventions are recommended to be included as first-line conservative treatment for men and women with chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS). The main purpose of this course is to provide theoretical updates and practical skills based evidence on the PT Assessment and Treatment of CPPS and Sexuality in men and women.

At the end of this workshop, participants should be able to better:

  • Understand the issues related to the pathophysiology of CPPS in men and women.
  • Identify the pelvic dysfunctions and the correlation with male and female sexuality.
  • Utilize proper strategies to assess the pelvic area and to characterize pelvic floor dysfunction associated to musculoskeletal disorders.
  • Discuss the therapeutic options for improving the symptoms of men and women living with CPPS based on the most recent scientific evidences.
