It's only natural for physical therapists to gravitate toward their favorite areas and issues to treat in the clinic. They're usually ones we feel most confident with, aren't they? But sometimes--oftentimes--going outside of our comfort zones to learn new skills, and gain a new understanding of the human body not only makes us better physical therapists, it's where we can start reshaping the healthcare system itself. It can turn an avenue of care many aren't even aware exists into standard practice. We're talking female pelvic and perinatal health. And the nearly 4 million women who give birth in the U.S. every year need our help.
Many PTs--men and women--aren't comfortable treating a pregnant client. But we need many more that are. Which is why women's health experts Susan Clinton, PT, DScPT, OCS, WCS, COMT, FAAOMPT and Jessica McKinney, PT, MS are teaching Manual Therapy and Pregnancy in Berrien Springs, MI June 19-20. They'll also be teaching it in Portland, OR in September and in Salt Lake City, UT in November. Reserve your spot today!
