In this case report from a male patient who scheduled a remote consultation, my biggest takeaway was the lack of functional assessment he had received.

He was dealing with pelvic pain, urinary urgency/frequency, post-void dribbling, incontinence during exercise and pain with sitting.

While he had been to two different pelvic PTs, and did have minor improvements, his life was still very different. Normally an avid runner, he had cut running out completely (after usually doing 70-80 miles a week). Sitting caused such pain he switched to a standing desk, without actually addressing his underlying issues.

In talking with him, together we saw five different areas where a more functional assessment and treatment could (and I would argue, should) have been done. Hope you enjoy this case report!

As Nicole said in the full episode:

"I want you to be thinking about how to be assessing and treating your patients more functionally." - Nicole Cozean
