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?
We can help patients by understanding the various differentials, using critical thinking, and knowing what to include in assessments and treatments.

     

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:

  • Provide you with the ability to discern the differential diagnosis of pudendal neuralgia and other conditions related to chronic pelvic pain.
  • Focus on current diagnosis, evaluation and treatment techniques both from a physician perspective as well as a physiotherapy perspective.
  • Highlight the various patient complaints/symptoms and provide tools and knowledge to treat patients along the continuum of care – surgery prevention to post-operative cases/protocols.
  • Use an eclectic, multi-modal, and multidisciplinary approach to patient care.
  • Provide clinical pearls and functional anatomy tips that can be applied immediately.
  • Provide practical explanations and examples of how to integrate the latest in pain science research into the full continuum of care for these types of patients (this involves much more than simply “explaining pain”).
  • Integrate language, actions, and home programs to facilitate this effect.
  • Provide case studies and demos of hands-on techniques.
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. 
Demystify the pelvic nerve anatomy.
