Endometriosis: What do Physical Therapists Need to Know

Wednesday, January 23, 2019 | 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

Speaker:  Michelle Lyons, PT
Endometriosis is most commonly diagnosed in women in their 30s and 40s, but it can affect any woman. Current estimates suggest that 6%–10% of all women of reproductive age have endometriosis. Endometriosis may occur in about 75% of women with pelvic pain. Common symptoms of endometriosis include: painful menstrual cramps, dyspareunia, colorectal and urinary dysfunction, fatigue, and musculoskeletal dysfunction. With a blend of didactic and interactive learning, the speaker will take a biopsychosocial approach to educate providers about how best to serve clients with this disease. The speaker will discuss appropriate selection of manual therapy treatments balanced with appropriate exercise selection. Attendees will learn the evidence
behind an integrative approach that includes nutrition, mind-body techniques, and pain science education.

Objectives:

1. Select the appropriate treatments for endometriosis.
2. Identify the physical therapist’s role in the treatment of endometriosis.
