THE VISCERAL REHABILITATION
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The goal of this ADE is to provide students with the means to evaluate and recognize the symptoms of a pelvic dysfunction, in order to be able to direct the patient from an expert in pelvic rehabilitation.
Students will then be able to recognize the specific dysfunction thanks to the evaluation and the patient's medical history, and will be able to set up an initial conservative treatment to limit the progression of the pathology.
