3 day course - CATA accredited - 21 hours

includes full color 60 page Workbook

Why take this course?

If you encounter female patients in your practice with Pelvic Complaints but feel ill equipped to help them,  this course is for you!  Designed for Practitioners who perform Manual Therapy, this course is suitable for Osteopathic Practitioners, Physiotherapists and Athletic Therapists.

Part  I of this series on Treating Women's Health Dysfunctions teaches you about the Mechanics of the Female Pelvis and the many factors that influence healthy pelvic functioning in a woman.  

Specifically, you will learn how dysfunction within the mechanics of the female pelvic viscera and its associated reflex centers can lead to common female pelvic complaints such as Urinary Incontinence and Uterine Dysfunction.  Assessment techniques are taught and a complete Treatment Protocol is provided.

Techniques taught all correspond to Osteopathic Principles of Visceral Osteopathy and Spinal Reflex Centers.  As a result, all techniques are external and Osteopathic in nature.
