Learn to optimize bowel health from multiple angles. 

A Holistic Approach to GI Health

A comprehensive approach to gastrointestinal disorders allows for the consideration and management of multiple factors including nutritional, psychosocial, medical-surgical decisions, and physical therapy examination/intervention. A multifactorial approach can often lead to improved management, as varied intervention is often essential. A comprehensive understanding of the physiology and symptom manifestation can improve the ability to develop a comprehensive intervention strategy tailored to each patient’s needs throughout the episode of care.

     

What people are saying:

As a pelvic PT who is referred many patients with GI concerns this was an excellent course to go deeper into holistic evaluation and treatment for this population. An excellent balance between research and experience in practice. Susan Clinton made the material easy to understand and apply. She is a gifted educator! 
This course was originally supposed to be in person, but Pelvic Guru did an excellent job adapting it to an online-hybrid platform. Would definitely recommend to other providers treating patients with GI and pain concerns! 
The Ultimate Bowel class with Susan Clinton was full of clinical pearls so that even PTs with years of bowel work can take away something useful. Susan has a wonderful way of sharing her knowledge in a creative and interesting way that can be readily translated into clinical care. I highly recommend this class.

Fantastic Labs

Course: This course is completely recorded and self-paced so you have flexibility on when and where you watch! There will be no live portion included. There are Q&As recorded with the students that participated in the live recording. 

Lab: The lab videos are all included in the recorded material and will very specifically walk you through how to use a balloon catheter as well as several other manual techniques. There is no live/small group lab included in this course (they were an additional option available for those who took the live course but were not required and not considered part of the content of the course). If you would like a personal private lab experience, you may email Susan Clinton and discuss a fee for that one-on-one professional consultation.

More accolades for the online Ultimate Bowel course: 

The Bowel Course provided such useful information to take to the clinic the next day and make a real difference with my Women's Health patient population. I wish I had taken this course years ago.
Susan is a dynamic speaker and even online kept the material engaging. It was nice to actually do virtually without travel and being away from home. Content was referenced and reputable. 
This course was excellent! I learned so much and you won’t be disappointed. So many aspects of learning about the GI. I feel so much more confident in treating this. Thank you Susan!
