This unique book bridges the gap between evidence-based research and clinical practice in physical therapy for pelvic floor dysfunction. A cast of highly experienced specialists is headed up by an internationally renowned editorial team of pioneering researchers and teachers. Each treatment chapter starts with a focus on evidence from basic studies (theories or rationales for the treatment) and RCTs (appraisal of effectiveness); this is then comprehensively linked to the implications for clinical practice and followed up with recommendations on how to start, continue and progress treatment. This text is essential for all forward-thinking clinicians specializing in the pelvic floor and looking for innovative practice guidelines backed with a sound evidence base.

Review quote

"[This] is a very modern textbook. It is based on evidence, it brings together physiotherapists, clinicians and researchers, and it focuses on what really matters - namely the problem of the patient which impacts on her or his quality of life. Dr. Kari Bo, Dr. Bary Berghmans, Dr. Siv Morkved and Dr. Marijke Van Kampen are to be congratulated on having brought together such a distinguished list of contributors. They will open our eyes and give us a new understanding of physiotherapy for the pelvic floor." "Paul Riss, "Past President, International Urogynecology Association ""Evidence-based Physiotherapy for the Pelvic Floor" takes us on a wonderful journey where three core themes of synthesizing, accessing and implementing evidence are intertwined. [...] On behalf of WCPT, I congratulate the authors and editors ... and commend them for their efforts in contributing to the body of knowledge in this important discipline." Sandra Mercer Moore, former President, WCPT
