5 Steps to a Happy Bladder

Remember the first patient whose life you changed?

That person with debilitating pain and pelvic dysfunction that you helped to settle their symptoms and their life was changed forever more? That felt great, right?

Treating Bladder Pain Syndrome can sometimes be like hitting a brick wall. It can feel complex and overwhelming when someone’s in so much pain, but it shouldn’t.

Join me to learn 5 steps to a Happy Bladder: get confident in building a roadmap to recovery for your patients and assured in how your manual treatments can bring them relief.

This isn’t one of those courses where I stand at the front and tell you lots of interesting things to sound clever, this is a Workshop where you’ll explore your own potential. Less lectures, more feeling like you’re really getting hands-on with techniques.

You’ll come away feeling equipped with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to be confident in developing individualised and evidence-based rehabilitation programmes and start making life-changing differences to the lives of those suffering from Bladder Pain Syndrome.

Bladder Pain Syndrome, previously known as Interstitial Cystitis, is a debilitating condition that affects up to 4 million people in the UK. Physiotherapy is an evidence-based and effective treatment for the symptoms of BPS in men and women, that in many cases can be life-changing.

This practical workshop will explore the recent research surrounding BPS and the evidence for manual and adjunctive therapies to ensure your practice is routed in contemporary knowledge.
