Do you ever feel like there is something missing from your clinical toolbox? Do your back and hip pain patients get better, but then end up coming back in a few months later? Do you have trouble getting neck muscles to relax? Do your shoulder patients need constant cuing for posture? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this course is for you. The pelvic floor may be the missing link that could resolve these frustrations. For most physical therapists the pelvic floor is a dark and mysterious place. Don't let it intimidate you anymore! In this exercise based course you will learn how to incorporate pelvic floor training into the treatments you already use. Don’t worry, there will be no undressing involved! You will go to work Monday morning excited to use the assessment and treatment skills you learn in lab.
