Date to be determined as this program will be offered continuously during the year, with a new group starting every time there are 10 people signed up.
Setting: This live-stream, online, small-group program (10 participants) will meet monthly to review the principles of Butler and Moseley’s newest book, Explain Pain Supercharged. The format will utilize an online meeting room to have a face-to-face discussion, reviewing previously learned material and understanding new material for treating pelvic pain. There will be a monthly, 2-hour meeting for 10 months (July and August will always be free and clear of meetings) from the comfort of your own home. Each 2-hour session will involve participant-driven case studies for half of the session. This is a time to get your questions answered in a small-group, problem-solving format.

Pelvic Health Stream:
You must have completed Levels 1-3, or their equivalent as a pelvic health therapist in order to participate in the pelvic health stream.
We do have one dedicated orthopedic therapist, with 40 years’ experience in persistent pain that will take a small group through the same learning principles/experience even if pelvic health is only a small or non-existent part of your practice.
