Women's & Men's Health Physio Summit 2016 #Pelvicsummit16 : Birmingham UK , Saturday 18th June 2016.
Save the date for #Pelvicsummit16

Following the success of last year's inaugural Women's Health Physio Summit #WHSummit15 we now have a date for the 2016 summit. We will be using the #pelvicsummit16 on social media. This year will have some new and exciting developments to include some Men's Health Physiotherapy content with one of the leading international Men's Health tutors. We will also have a guest speaker from the States who is one of the key APTA Physios in Women's and Men's health. There will also be a session on pelvic physio in neurological and long term conditions and the role of biomechanics in managing the post natal patient. Lots of other great sessions also. A new addition this year will be  a pre-summit course and this will be a one day course looking at managing the pelvic patient with a blended musculoskeletal and women's health approach. This will appeal to both women's and men's health physios and those in musculoskeletal and sports who are either currently seeing these patients or would like to. There will be speakers from Ireland, UK and the States and similar to last year we are hoping to attract International delegates also. The venue was so great last year in Birmingham we will be returning there on Saturday 18th June 2016. Save the date! Many Thanks Gerard
