Coccydynia is a condition that can seriously impact the quality of life of patients. Fortunately there are several treatment methods, the least invasive of which is an external correction of the tailbone (coccyx). This treatment can be performed with various techniques. Dutch orthopedic manual therapists Meine Veldman and Cecile Röst have been teaching and updating this practical course since 2012, and it has been well received and highly evaluated by the numerous participants. Do you want more insight into coccydynia? Do you want to learn how to make the correct diagnosis and apply different, effective treatment methods? If so, this course is for you. The course material will cover the anatomy and biomechanics of the pelvis, including the sacro-coccygeal and coccygeal joints. You will learn safe treatment techniques to reduce or even eliminate the symptoms. Case studies and clinical reasoning form an important part of this course. Your patients will be grateful for the efficient and non-painful method!
