Eureka Seminars is very pleased to bring Dr. Ruth Jones, Ph.D., MCSP, a Chartered physiotherapist from the UK, and her outstanding “Private Detective” courses to the United States. The Private Detective course program is a unique course program offering “a close look at physiotherapy for pelvic pain, urinary, and sexual dysfunction.” The program consists of the PP-1 course with a focus on female patients and the PP-2 course with a focus on male patients.  In the US, very few course programs focus exclusively on male pelvic pain and dysfunction, yet, male pelvic pain is quite common in the general population, but also in high level athletes.  In the UK, Dr. Jones works extensively with professional male rugby and soccer players and pelvic dysfunction is a common problem.


Prerequisites

None.


Eligibility Requirements

The course is designed for physical therapists, physicians and physician assistants, and nurse practitioners.  All participants are expected to participate in the hands-on portion of the course.
