This advanced lecture and lab course is designed to assist clinicians with those complex patients that are struggling to improve. The clinician will gain an appreciation for the influences of an asymmetrical pelvis and how this imbalance contributes to pelvic floor dysfunction. We will explore in detail the function of the pelvic inlet and outlet as it relates to anatomy, respiration, and asymmetry in a multiple polyarticular chain system. Participants will be able to restore pelvic and respiratory neutrality through a PRI treatment approach.
Live Stream courses will take place from 8am-5pm CT each day, and certificates of completion/CE credit will be awarded the following week after completion of the course evaluation survey and short post-test. For more information on whether your state/organization is approved for CE approval, please click on the "Accreditation" tab below. Live Stream courses will be engaging, interactive and include demonstration of objective testing and/or non-manual techniques, in addition to course attendees being able to ask questions throughout the course. All that’s needed on your end is reliable internet access, a webcam, microphone and speaker (or a smart phone can be used if you do not have a computer or laptop with this capability). The course manual will be shipped directly to you 1-2 weeks before the course. *International registrants will receive access to a digital version of the course manual. In addition, participants will receive access to the recording of the live stream course for 10 days to review the material, and re-watch any material that may have been missed due to connection issues. Extensions beyond this 10 day review are not available. ***Please note: In order to receive access to the recording for review, you must participate in person on the Live Stream course with your camera on for at least half of the course (8 hours). If you sign up for the course and do not participate in at least 8 hours of the live stream, you will not receive the recording and you will not be refunded.
