Can OTs Treat the Pelvic Floor? Absolutely!
Our Occupational Therapy Practice Framework clearly designates toileting and sexual intimacy as Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), placing pelvic health squarely within our scope of practice.
Contrary to common misconceptions, you don't need to be a PT, nor is extensive certification mandatory to make a significant impact in this area. Pelvic health is essential for life, health, wellness, occupational performance, and engagement, transcending age and gender.
Dive into the art and science of pelvic health with our self-paced continuing education course.
