Michelle Nesin: "Coccydynia Basics"

This is a recorded webinar. After purchasing the event you will receive a link in your email for direct access.

Coccydynia and lumbopelvic pain are common presentations experienced by patients in both the orthopedic and pelvic health settings and results in restriction of the most basic functional activities. Often missed as a contributing factor of both lumbosacral pain and pelvic floor dysfunction, coccyx restriction can play a role not only in low back pain, SI joint dysfunction, and sacral pain but also in pelvic and sexual pain, painful voiding, painful defecation and difficulty with bowel and bladder emptying. Due to the attachment of the pelvic floor onto the coccyx and its relationship to the sacrum, it is essential that pelvic floor and orthopedic PTs manifest a solid understanding of the evaluation and treatment of the sacrococcygeal region and be able to treat it effectively. This educational session will provide an up-to-date solid foundation for the PT, PTA to understand the anatomy of the coccyx as well as analyze the role of the coccyx in pelvic floor dysfunction.

 

Objectives:

1. Understand the anatomy of the coccyx and associated structures.

2. Analyze the role of the coccyx relating to the sacrum, innominate, lumbar spine and pelvic floor.

3. Formulate an understanding of the coccyx’s role in pelvic floor function.

4. Identify normal and abnormal coccyx positioning.

5. Apply the principles of functional mobilization™, joint mobilization, strain-counterstrain, myofascial release and visceral mobilization in coccyx treatment.

6. Create a basic care plan relating to patient’s symptoms and exam findings.
