This Pelvic Girdle Pain online course was initially thought as a theory only course, but the world had other plans. Since the 2020 covid-19 pandemic started we had to change our priorities. Taking all this knowledge online (both theoretical and practical) became paramount to continue to educate therapists around the world. And we started working on it. This renewed online theory and practical course is the result.

Study at home at your own pace, and immerse yourself in the fascinating world of pregnancy and delivery and the challenging topic of pelvic girdle pain (PGP). Watch all the videos closely, follow links to current evidence and read what best practice is available. Practice with your partner, a friend, a model, to develop the necessary skills to treat women with PGP. Understand how it disrupts the daily activities of patients, and how therapists can help them learn how to control their symptoms and improve their function and quality of life.
