Live Online: The Coccyx Course with Lisa Hastie
Saturday 17th September 2022, 9:00am - 5:00pm

Coccyx and sacral related pain is challenging to assess and treat and difficult for patients to cope with. This new course addresses that.

Coccyx (coccydynia) and sacral related pain is challenging to assess and treat and difficult for patients to cope with. It is also an area of practice with limited opportunities available for training and education. Lisa is one of the few Uk based pelvic health physiotherapy specialists to combine working in both female and male pelvic health with seeing sporting pelvic floor dysfunction ranging from British gymnastics to weekend warriors. Her female pelvic health clinical work ranges from ante natal pelvic girdle pain to seeing mums to complex female pelvic pain to women with pelvic organ prolapse and bowel dysfunction. She has assessed and treated elite female athletes for pelvic health conditions and is a consultant for British gymnastics in this specialist field. Her male pelvic health work with Gerard (Greene) includes male pelvic pain and male athletic pelvic health dysfunction. During her highly rated clinical teaching many of her course attendees have asked for more specific clinically focused education and training around coccyx dysfunction and this new one-day course has spawned from those rich clinical discussions on her courses. Lisa has mentored many other physiotherapists and many of those conversations and clinic based “water cooler “moments with Gerard, Sundeep and the rest of the team have centred around the role of the coccyx and sacrum. This is a course for clinicians delivered by a specialist clinician, and it will appeal to physiotherapists and other clinicians from the specialist areas of musculoskeletal, sport, pregnancy & post-natal, female pelvic health, and male pelvic health. She is a #tutorwhotreats
