Exercise for Endometriosis - 1 CPD Point
Exercise is medicine for chronic pain, and women with endometriosis can gain a lot in pain management strategies, hormone regulation & post-operative care with exercise rehabilitation. With nearly 1 in 10 women diagnosed with endometriosis, and the disease requiring a multi-disciplinary approach for long term management, exercise has a big role to play in pain management, mental health, hormonal & anti-inflammatory support as well as pre/post operative care. This *NEW* webinar looks at the principals of working with endo, and what to consider in exercise prescription as well as working within a multi-disciplinary team.
