Event description

Description

This course brings together over 24 years of clinical practice and evidence based research specific to the field of pre and postnatal physical therapy. This course is will provide Myotherapists with the training and education to safely and effectively formulate patient management plans and to recognize risks and complications that may require referral to appropriate medical personnel. The latest research related to precautions and benefits of the manual therapy modalities commonly used in myotherapy practice and its relevance to the pregnant patient will be covered. Evidenced based research into the management of many conditions that present during pregnancy with emphasis on pelvic girdle pain will be a large component of this course. Current guidelines in relation to exercise during the pre and postnatal period will also be reviewed. This course is essentially a theoretical review of a pregnant patient who may be experiencing pain and dysfunction and the management of this using the biopsychosocial approach to patient care within the scope of myotherapy practice.
