Muddled about vaginal microbiomes? Wondering how vaginal flora is relevant to your patients with chronic vaginal irritation, urethral irritation, vulvodynia, recurrent UTIs and chronic/recurrent thrush? Wishing you could do more to help your patients while staying within your scope as a physiotherapist?
Resolving Recurrent UTI
You’re seeing recurrent UTI all the time in your patients: prolapse patients, painful sex patients, pelvic pain patients, urgency/OAB patients…and patients seeing you because they’re plain old plagued with UTIs! You’ve told them all the basics. They already wipe front to back, drink plenty of water and void after sex (double-void in fact!). The question you find yourself asking is “What more can I do for my poor patients plagued with UTIs?” The answer is: tons!
Get set to have your understanding of UTI recurrence blown wide open. Strategies go way past traditional perineal hygiene advice! In this course you’ll find out about
- Specific probiotic strategies you can immediately employ
- Uncover the role that biofilm plays in UTI and what influences its formation and breakdown
- What the latest evidence is on cranberry – and a little-known close relative
- Why urine pH matters in reducing UTI risk – and how you can specifically advise your patient on how to influence it
- What nutrient deficiencies to suggest investigation for– and even a nutrient that may need to be restricted in the recurrent UTI patient
- How to determine whether some of the natural medicines your patient is using are UTI-useless or have UTI-utility
The content of this course builds upon its prerequisite, pHantastic pHlora. You’ll be applying the principles further – in particular, discovering what to do when the vaginal pH doesn’t change, and what this might have to do with biofilm and infection persistence and recurrence.
As a pilot launch, this e-course is available for pre-purchase as a BUNDLE with pHantastic pHlora – before it becomes available to anyone else! Take advantage of the saving and get your urogenital/vulvovaginal CPD sorted for the year in a way you won’t find anywhere else!
Do I need to be in Australia to do this course?
No, Alyssa lives in Brisbane, however all of the content is delivered online!
What if I can't be at the weekly LIVE session?
That's absolutely fine, each week there are 3-4 lectures (around 15-30 mins). One of those lectures is delivered LIVE, but if the time doesn't suit, just watch the replay!
How long will I be able to access the content for?
All of the lectures and PDF slides are downloadable, you'll be able to save them straight to your computer for future reference! There is also an interactive Facebook group to discuss the content of the course. Every time the course runs, more students and more discussions will be had!
“If you are treating pelvic pain or using pessaries, this course is highly relevant and you’ll never regret it!”
“It clarified the importance and relevance of the vaginal microbiome to many of the conditions I treat. It gave me some confidence to start integrating my new knowledge of the vaginal microbiome into my clinical practice. Should be compulsory learning for all pelvic health physios!”
“I had many ‘a-ha’ moments! This is a fantastic course if you have little or no knowledge of the vagina microbiome. It is straightforward, evidence based and Alyssa is approachable and knowledgeable beyond belief!”
“I've just had an 87 yr old have pH from 6.5 to 5 in 10 days with [the treatment taught in the course]! Has made a huge difference to her OAB symptoms so thanks a million!”
“Informative, format is easy to fit into a busy working week, and I can easily implement strategies with my patients straight away. ”
“The course went way and above what I thought Vaginal pH would involve. I feel like I've learned a lot that I don't know where else I would've found all this out. ”
This online course enables pelvic physiotherapists to manipulate the vaginal ecosystem to achieve enhanced clinical outcomes for their patients with complex, chronic vulvovaginal symptoms.
