Neuralgia or Entrapment?

Pudendal neuralgia and pudendal nerve entrapment. These diagnoses are often confusing to both patients and healthcare providers. Additionally, there are numerous differential diagnoses to consider with pelvic neuralgia symptoms. 

Patients seek out the answers to these questions and often find there’s a wide variability in answers and level of expertise or understanding from health care providers:
  • Do I have pudendal nerve neuralgia or entrapment?
  • What are the best diagnostic tests for an accurate diagnosis?
  • What type of treatment options are there?
  • Is it worth getting blocks and injections?
  • If so, what should I consider?
  • What exercises are safe?
  • Do I need surgery for this and what’s the best type of surgery?

Pelvic physiotherapists and occupational therapists (as well as assistants) should be at the forefront of critical thinking, evaluation and treatment for these conditions that affect function, quality of life, social participation, and activities of daily living. 

     

What people are saying:

The course was amazing! Full of great information! I loved how we had the opportunity to discuss some cases we are struggling with and brainstorm with everyone in the group on how to best provide care! Tracy definitely took a lot of time to discuss our concerns and answer any questions we had. I am excited for future courses!
Pelvic Guru's Pudendal Neuralgia class went beyond my expectations as a virtual course. The pre-course materials were very comprehensive, and the live portions allowed us to discuss case studies and anything from the pre-course videos we wanted clarification on. I feel that this class enhanced my skills as a moderately experienced practitioner, and I can really fine-tune my diagnosis and treatment skills to match each patient. 
Tracy created a comfortable on-line meeting room where we were able to share and ask questions. If you have been treating pelvic floor patients and would like to enhance your skills with pelvic pain, this is the course for you!

This unique course will:

  • At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  • Identify what patients are seeking and their primary concerns when they have symptoms of pudendal neuralgia
  • Identify important pelvic neuroanatomical and musculoskeletal structures related to pudendal neuralgia and other pelvic neuralgias
  • Relate with patients through the use of effective language throughout the entire course of care that integrates the latest pain science research.
  • Develop a strong understanding of tests and treatment options available to patients from physicians, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists and the risks and efficacy involved.
  • Develop confidence and a larger armamentarium of hands-on skills to help patients with pelvic neuralgias so that they may return to their daily activities, social participation, and leisure activities. 
Get people back to living their best lives. 

     

More accolades:

Loved Tracy’s course! Her anatomy slides really helped you put everything together in terms of visualizing what you are palpating. She has excellent patient case studies to share that facilitate great discussion and help with differential diagnosis skills! Plus Tracy’s energy and enthusiasm are contagious!
It was an awesome opportunity to take this course and learn the material. Tracy has a wealth of experience and it is helpful to know she is dedicated to educating others. I think the concepts of pain education and the science of pain management could have been a course on its own! So much for all clinicians to continue to learn about the power of words and its effect on the healing process.
Wonderfully presented course. After just finishing the course I feel as though I have relevant and applicable tools, techniques and insights as to better guide my patients along there healing journey.

She's a sea of wisdom! Thank you Tracy. Pleasure to learn from you always!

I have taken a lot of classes in my 25 years as a PT and Tracy is by far the best instructor I have ever had.

She makes very complicated issues less intimidating to treat and helps to look at diagnoses and patient complaints in new ways. She is so open to questions and her passion for wanting to share her information to help us work with clients is infectious. 
Great knowledge, presentation skill, with a warm welcoming personality! Thanks


Thanks Tracy for sharing your passion, knowledge and experience. So great. You are a natural teacher!

Very kind and approachable and knows her stuff!! I REALLY appreciated her emphasis on language and on intellectual honesty with respect to the fact that we are providing neuromodulation and interacting with the nervous system as opposed to "correcting structural faults" that we see sometimes in other pelvic health courses.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge.
