Pregnancy ≠ Pain
About The Course:
Pregnancy is quite possibly the most grueling thing a human body can go through. Over the course of 10 months, enormous changes take place, and it's commonly assumed that pain is part of this journey. While pain is common during pregnancy, it is not normal. There is much that can be done to help women feel better while their bodies go through immense changes, but many practitioners have incorrect understandings and beliefs about why women may be having pain, and underestimate how resilient these women are.
During this talk we will look at the research in the most common complaints--low back pain and pelvic girdle pain. Why does it happen? What can we do to help? How careful do we really have to be?
The goal of this online course is to give you the framework and confidence to help women navigate their pregnancy more comfortably with less fear and more of doing what they love!
This course was recorded at a multi-disciplinary conference where clinicians learn how to apply current pain research into clinical practice.
