Description

Pelvic floor issues are not just a mom problem. They are more common than you realize – the taboo nature of the topic makes it difficult for patients to bring up.

On top of that, many therapists don’t feel comfortable addressing issues around pelvic floor dysfunction.

You’ll learn strategies to confidently identify and treat pelvic floor issues that are bringing down the quality of life of your patients. Being able to move is a necessity for health – and it should not be embarrassing or painful.

Walk away with practical and useful techniques that can be implemented immediately within your practice.
