About The Course

The pelvic floor has long been the only muscle targeted in the battle against incontinence and yet ignored in our pursuit of a strong ‘core’.

New research has helped us understand that the pelvic floor is actually a critical part of the ‘core’ team and collectively that team works together to keep your center anchored and dry.

Integrated teamwork, linked to the up and down pistoning action of our breath, provides a sturdy foundation that supports our joints and movement, accelerates fitness, and keeps us dry.

Internationally recognized Physical Therapist Julie Wiebe is a clinician, educator, and advocate for women, specializing in returning women to fitness after injury and pregnancy.

Julie guides you step-by-step through this self-paced video series offering new concepts, exercises, movement strategies, and body awareness tips easily integrated into your day. A revolution for how you use your body, PFP: Foundation for Fitness is your first step toward resolving leaks and restoring a strong foundation for your movement and fitness.

Who Is This Course For?

This course is designed for rehabilitation professionals, healthcare professionals, patients, or members of the general public who are interested in an introduction to pelvic floor function and pelvic floor exercises (beyond Kegels). This online course is also recommended for minimal to moderate prolapse, diastasis, and pelvic pain.

  • The physiotherapist/physical therapist (PT), occupational therapist (OT), and speech-language pathologist (SLP) will gain the theoretical basis, clinical reasoning and practical tools for breaking down symptomatic functional and fitness tasks in order to build them back up toward a client’s fitness goals. From interviewing and assessment to evidenced-based treatment plan development and progressions, online participants will observe, and participate through self-reflection, the integration of pelvic, musculoskeletal, and performance health concepts in recorded treatment examples. Co-professional collaboration and referral will be stressed.
  • The physiotherapist assistant (PTA), occupational therapy assistant (OTA), and speech-language pathologist assistant (SLPA) will gain insight into the theoretical basis for the assessment process and reasoning behind the POC designed by the therapist. Observation, and participation through self-reflection, of the integration of pelvic, musculoskeletal, and performance health concepts in recorded treatment examples will assist with monitoring and modifying treatment progressions to ensure continuity of care.
  • The Athletic Trainer/Kinesiologist (AT/Kin) will gain insight into the theoretical basis, clinical reasoning, and practical tools for integration of the POC into an athlete's training program. Observation, and participation through self-reflection, of the integration of pelvic, musculoskeletal, and performance health concepts in recorded treatment examples will assist with monitoring and modifying an athlete's program to keep pelvic and musculoskeletal health in mind.
