Target Audience

This course is designed for all physiotherapists and other health professionals who work with people with sacro-iliac and pubic joint pain and dysfunction. This is not a course just for Women’s Health physiotherapists, but for all physiotherapists working with orthopaedic and persistent pain caseloads. Both new and experienced physiotherapists have found this course to be beneficial.



In the literature, treatment methods to relieve pelvic girdle pain include manual therapy and exercise, although there are few studies guiding us with specific, effective approaches. Cecile Röst has developed a very practical approach, initially based on personal experience, then consolidated through research, which has helped thousands of women with PGP. Although Cecile Röst’s research focused on peri-partum patients, this approach is also helpful clinically when addressing acute and chronic sacro-iliac and pubic pain in men, and nulliparous women. It is often difficult to know where to start when working with someone with very acute back/pubic pain, especially in pregnancy. Many women are told by their health professionals, including physiotherapists, that back pain is a normal part of pregnancy, or that there is nothing much that can be done because they are pregnant. Not only that, but they are told that their pelvis is “unstable”, that they should “be careful”, and that they should “limit their activity and avoid painful movements”, all of which perpetuate fear and pain. These women do not need to suffer because PGP is treatable! They deserve to have more comfortable and enjoyable pregnancies. This course will give participants the confidence to treat these patients. The techniques are easy to integrate into clinical practice and participants will be able to start practicing this approach immediately.



$675.00 early bird fee-up until June 7th, $725 after June 7th. Includes snacks, tea/coffee.
