wealth of knowledge from Grainne and really going above and beyond to cover all aspects of Diastasis. Great case study to follow and input from the physiodective Antony Lowe was an extra bonus. Would highly recommend to msk physiotherapists treating the post natal population, private physiotherapists, sports and exercise clinicians. Thank you to Grainne for all her time in putting this course together and getting it out during lockdown!
