Women with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders (HSD) have a high rate of pelvic floor disorders, and EDS and HSD are highly prevalent in women with pelvic health impairments. This course provides physical therapists with an evidence-based update on EDS, HSDs, and pelvic health and will explore clinical reasoning in pelvic physical therapy treatment for this diverse patient population. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
