The Female Pelvic Floor
This is a 205-page manual, detailing how to perform common interventions for the female pelvic floor.
Written by Fatima Hakeem, a founder of women's health nationally, with over 40 years of experience as a practicing women's health therapist.
This novel document is collaborative and living. Purchasers may access the document for 2 years. We invite our users to comment, correct, and suggest additions to the document, making it continually better over time.
It will forever be up to date, and printable for JCAHO.
Clinical Approach Series
PT Approaches to Specific Diagnoses
These modules provide guidance on what evaluation and treatment options should be used for a particular diagnosis.
In contrast to the Policies and Procedures Manual, which covers how to perform various potential evaluations and treatments, these documents discuss which treatments to choose in approaching a patient with a particular diagnosis.
We have documents for the following diagnoses:
Myofascial Sexual Pain
Persistent Pelvic Pain
Prenatal & Postpartum
Each document includes illustrated patient-friendly handouts, ready to share with patients.
Like the Manual, these are collaborative, living documents. We allow our purchasers access to the document in google docs format for 2 years from the time of purchase. We invite our users to comment, correct, and suggest additions to the document, and Fatima will moderate the incorporation of your expertise into the document, making it continually better over time.
Tapping into Fatima's wealth of business experience, these are her insights on making a successful PT practice, whether inside a hospital system, or on your own.
