April is a busy month!
wof-2017
1/2 April is the annual Woman on Fire weekend – Jenny Burrell and I have teamed up to bring you the best and the brightest in women’s health for a weekend of learning, laughing, networking…and did I mention there’s dinner and a disco?
15/16 April: I’m heading back to Istanbul to talk at the first Pelvic Health Symposium – I will be talking about male pelvic pain, sexual health and the intersection of msk and pelvic physiotherapy. For further info, please email me directly (michellelyonsphysio@gmail.com) or the Symposium organiser, Mr Umit Erkut (osteopat.umiterkut@gmail.com )
22/23 April: I’m off to Minneapolis to teach my Menopause: A Rehab Approach course which provides therapists with an in depth, evidence based toolbox to help serve women who are peri-post menopausal as well as those who have had hysterectomies
29/30 April: I’ll be in Maywood, Illinois teaching my Oncology and the Female Pelvic Floor course. This is a topic I feel passionately about! I spoke at the IPPS meeting in Chicago in 2016 on this topic – this is still an under-served and under-recognised group of cancer survivors, who should be benefitting from the evidence based life-changing treatment that we can provide!
From 3-7 May, I will be at the Klose Lymphedema Conference, in Denver, Colorado. I will be presenting there on the topic of ‘Pelvic Oncology for Lymphedema Therapists’ and I’m thrilled to be invited!
On May 27/28, I will be going back to Turkey, this time to Ankara, to present at a Multi-disciplinary Approach to Urinary and Anal Incontinence – details again from Umit Erkut ( email: osteopat.umiterkut@gmail.com)
June 17/18 will see me in Freehold, NJ, presenting my brand new course on Pudendal Neuralgia and Nerve Entrapment. This is a topic that provides much mystery and confusion to patient and clinician alike – I will be going deep on neuroanatomy, the brain/pain connection when there’s chronic pelvic pain involved, and integrative approach and much more – come and join the conversation!
June 24/25 – I’ll be back in Connecticut! I’ll be teaching my Oncology and the Male Pelvic Floor in Middletown. Despite the growing body of research and evidence, clinical practice in men’s health is still lagging behind women’s health. This course will deepen your understanding of male cancers such as prostate, penile and testicular, as well as bladder and colorectal cancers and their treatment.
