Course Description:

Women’s bodies go through a lot in a lifetime. Add the stresses and strains of pregnancy, childbirth, surgery, and trauma can lead to many problems, from pelvic floor disorders and lymphedema to back pain and bone loss.

Without specialized training in the unique needs of women, you could be leaving your patients misunderstood, misdiagnosed, undertreated and underserved – failing to end their pain, missing an opportunity to restore wellness to their lives, and leaving them to face the risk, discomfort and cost of unnecessary surgeries.

This 3-day intensive Certificate Course will provide you with today’s most innovative treatments to help women reclaim active, satisfying, pain-free lives.

Attend and bring valuable additions to your clinical toolbox that will allow you to implement advanced treatment plans for the most common issues women face, including pregnancy/postpartum complications, pelvic floor dysfunction, breast cancer, lymphedema, fibromyalgia and osteoporosis. What’s more, you’ll leave this training better able to expand your practice, serving as a go-to clinician on issues related to women’s health in rehabilitation.

Sign up today, earn your Certificate in Women’s Health, and leave feeling confident and fulfilled, knowing that you can change the lives of women!
