The Pelvic Floor concepts course provides an easy introduction into the many roles of the pelvis and its related structures. The diverse functions are used as a learning opportunity to start problem solving multi-systemic dysfunction. Relevant aspects are revisited from different angles to enhance understanding. This course is pitched as an initial foray into the pelvis and is an absolute must for anyone wanting to do pelvic work, as it introduces the concept of the ‘whole’ rather than focusing on individual symptoms and patient presentations. (A good refresher for those already working in the pelvis, as it sets the ground work for the many different patient populations that are encountered clinically).
