Tough to Treat

Jul 6, 2023

Clinical practice guidelines provide the practitioner with the most up-to-date research on a certain diagnosis or condition. 

Join Susan in a two-part interview about Pelvic Girdle Pain in the Antepartum Population. 

In part 2 there is a discussion around systemic vs. biomechanical drivers and the effect of cortisol and stress. 

The clinician is asked to review their confirmational biases, consider changing from the relaxin conversation, and listen to the client's story. 

Interventions are driven by these stories, movement pattern changes, load transfer, and sensory input.
