External Treatment for Coccydynia

Practical course Coccydynia basic course

Do you have patients with acute or persistent coccydynia? Have you ever wanted to develop your manual skills to treat coccydynia externally? Do you like to treat your patients with a patient friendly, painless treatment that is highly effective? Would you like to be trained in assessing coccyx dislocations, finding the cause of referred pain in the coccyx and be able to treat in the best practice way? In Holland this course is very popular among physiotherapists, orthopedic doctors and manual therapists.

Join this wonderful course (we presented it many times in Dutch to hundreds of enthusiastic physios) and become as enthusiastic as we are! 

First Time Offered in Canada in 2019 was highly evaluated! Therefore we started up international courses in the Netherlands as well: first time will be this spring in Leiden. Join our centre of knowledge and interact with colleagues from other countries, you are so welcome!

External Treatment for Coccydynia

North America. Dutch Manual Physiotherapist Cecile Röst has presented many courses on PGP in Canada over the last decade.This winter she will come to Abbotsford BC to present a one day course that gives physiotherapists skills for external assessment and treatment of coccydynia, based on Meine Veldmann’s and Cecile’s unique external manual approach. Already in 2012 Cecile and Meine presented a poster and video about their technique at the IFOMPT congress in Quebec. Among many other lectures and courses on coccydynia Meine presented at the Paris Symposium on Coccyx Disorders 2016 and the NAOMT Symposium in 2013. Meine and Cecile teach this popular course about three times a year throughout Holland since 2012. Now this exciting course is offered in Canada!

Europe. New in the Netherlands: on March 31st 2020, the popular Coccydynia course will be presented for an English speaking audience! We hired the penthouse in a popular Leiden museum: Corpus. Leiden is situated close to Schiphol airport and has excellent public transport. Close to all Holland can offer tourists! Leiden, Amsterdam, the Hague, Rotterdam, Delft, anything you like.

There is no internal assessment/treatment in this course. The course will be a combination of clinical reasoning and practical labs. Please wear comfortable, stretchy clothing for labs.
