When using a biopsychosocial approach, confidently ruling in/ruling out mechanical factors can be a real challenge. Do you have a systematic way to rule in and rule out mechanical hip pain, low back pain and pelvic girdle pain?
This course helps clinicians to consolidate their understanding of mechanical pain. Is the pain back dominant, or leg dominant? Should you use repeated movements or sustained postures with your patient? How quickly should you expect your patient’s symptoms to change? How do you communicate mechanical patterns of pain to your patients? Carolyn Vandyken will help you to confidently address the tissue-based drivers of low back pain, hip pain and pelvic girdle pain in an evidence-based framework.
Managing and marketing your services to both your patients, referral sources and colleagues can be a real challenge. In the last half of this course, join Darryl Yardley as he teaches us measurable and meaningful ways to generate new referral sources and attract new patients. Building a pelvic health caseload requires great interpersonal skills and confidence as you interact with your clinic manager, colleagues and referral sources.
Join us in this fun, interactive, career-changing course as you learn to Manage Mechanical Pain, Manage your Clinical Practice and Market your Skills (3M).
