What makes this tailbone pain course different?
In this physiotherapy course you will learn how to reduce tailbone pain with effective, non-nociceptive techniques, that are 100% EXTERNAL and thus non invasive.
It is very complete as a stand alone course, but it is designed to give you the basic knowledge you will need to join the practical course and further practice these techniques with other colleagues.
The online course comprises the fundamentals of coccydynia management: assessment, treatment, available evidence, self help techniques and homework exercises.
You will learn both how to treat in practice and how to teach patients to help themselves at home, at work and during physical activity.
- Gain insight into the biomechanics behind coccydynia
- Learn manual techniques to treat coccyx pain EXTERNALLY, in a non-invasive way
- Learn how to adapt activities of daily living (p.e. how to sit & stand up without pain)
- Learn about current treatment options and relevant research on tailbone pain
- Gain clinical reasoning skills to apply in practice and solve cases during the live practical course
- Prepare for the practical training day (OPTIONAL)
Why learning how to treat coccydynia?
Tailbone pain is present in both men and women, and accross all ages and cultures. Prevalence figures vary depending on the study, but we know that is more common during pregnancy and postpartum, after a fall or in professions that require sitting for long hours.
Coccydynia can make sitting, cycling or standing up from a sitting position excruciating, and can severely compromise the quality of life of those suffering it. Treatment can be internal (performed by doctors or pelvic physiotherapists) or external.
