        Movement System Foundations: Application To Women’s and Pelvic Health Practice

        The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) officially adopted the language of the “movement system” in 2013, with a white paper published in 2015 supporting the definition and understanding of the movement system in physical therapy. As this important concept continues to grow throughout the profession, it is of utmost importance that pelvic and women’s health physical therapists have an approachable understanding of how exactly to apply the concepts of the movement system and movement diagnoses in their practice. Additionally, as pelvic therapists, we continue to recognize the importance of a whole-body approach, and this course will provide a systematic framework in order to strategically assess the patient as a whole (and not just their pelvic floor). This 3-hour online pre-recorded webinar will be the foundation of a series of courses devoted to teaching the learner the movement system framework, diagnoses, and applications for treatment in women’s and pelvic health.
