Megan holds a Level II certification through the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT) and is in the final stages of completing her CMPT designation as a Level III Certified Manual Physical Therapist. She has consistently pursued excellence in clinical reasoning and differential diagnostics which led her to the completion of Level 3 coursework through the Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute to find that “missing link” in her understanding of orthopedics conditions. Additionally, she identified many links between pelvic rehabilitation and nutrition and is eager to share this information with the pelvic rehab community.
Megan’s longstanding passion for both nutritional sciences and manual therapy has culminated in the pursuit of applying her background to propel understanding of human physiology as it relates to pelvic conditions, pain, healing and therapeutic response. She created this course to combine these passions for a unique experience sure to elevate your level of appreciation for the complex and fascinating nature of clinical presentations in orthopedic manual therapy and pelvic rehabilitation.
