Endometriosis affects 10% of persons assigned female at birth.

The complexity of persistent pain and comorbidities of endometriosis, including idiopathic low back pain, make this a crucial condition for physiotherapists to understand, assess, and treat better than our current efforts. These persons deserve our attention and expertise, armed with the latest evidence and research.

Join Jill Mueller and Carolyn Vandyken as they share the latest research findings from the 15th World Endometriosis Conference, May 2023.  

They will help to disseminate research from world leaders such as Dr. Lorimer Moseley, Dr. Leonardi, Dr. Allaire, and many others on this exciting and apropos topic, especially as we just celebrated Endometriosis Awareness Month in March.

Learning objectives

  1. To raise awareness of the rehab clinician's role in assessing and treating endometriosis, as well as other comorbid conditions in lumbopelvic pain presentations.
  2. To raise awareness of educating young women to expect exceptional care and concern around period pain and menstrual concerns.
  3. To disseminate the latest research as presented at the World Endometriosis Conference May 4-6, 2023.


Everyone who treats persons assigned female at birth who have persistent pain, where at least 10% of those individuals will have endometriosis.

Join Carolyn Vandyken and Jill Mueller for this 1-hour online course 'An Update on Endometriosis from the World Congress in Edinburgh'.

Jill Mueller
BKin, BHScPT (Pelvic Health)

Jill has been a physiotherapist for 20 years, focusing on pelvic health, orthopaedics, and visceral therapy. She has been assisting courses for the past 5 years and is ready to share her knowledge by teaching her own course on Endometriosis. She has a keen interest in using a patient-centered approach, integrating an evidence-based, biopsychosocial model into her practice.

Jill has explored using these approaches, having endometriosis herself, and is now able to manage symptoms and live a more productive life. She feels that physiotherapists can play a vital role in helping these clients regain a better quality of life, and hopes to show others how they can help their clients suffering with similar symptoms.
