Because the pelvic floor muscles are hidden from view inside the pelvis, surface electromyography (sEMG) is an effective and evidence-based tool for direct measurement of pelvic floor muscle activity. This course will describe how sEMG is used for the evaluation of certain pelvic floor impairments. Physical and occupational therapists will gain insight into how sEMG is used in rehabilitation treatment of pelvic floor disorders and its efficacy at improving rehabilitation outcomes.
