This will be one of the few Paediatric and adolescent Pelvic Floor and health courses to be run in the UK or Europe in 2019. It is aimed at paediatric physiotherapists and pelvic health physiotherapists. With a focus on external techniques, education, behaviour modification, exercise and external pelvic floor techniques this course will equip delegates to add this specialised area of pelvic health to their clinical practice.
The course will focus on Paediatric Pelvic Health : The next frontier in Pelvic Physiotherapy.
