Resource Package - Biopsychosocial Reframed
Mind-body connection has been a popular topic over the past decade when looking at treating pain in a clinical setting but it has not always been linked to pain education.
This resource package complements the Pelvic Health Solutions (PHS) Level 3a course. This resource package also complements the online course at Reframe Rehab called Biopsychosocial REFRAMED: Creating a Psychologically Informed Practice (www.reframerehab.com)
In this resource package, you will have access to video exercises, written education, and protocols which you can share with patients via Embodia (an Embodia membership is required).
Develop your clinical skills to treat pain! Learn the practical and immediately clinically useful exercises recommended by Carolyn Vandyken and Reframe Rehab.

What is a Resource Package?
A resource package is not a complete online course. Rather, a resource package on Embodia contains patient exercises and/or education that can be prescribed to patients by an Embodia Member (subscriber) with a Tier 2 or 3 Membership. You can view membership pricing and what's included in the membership tiers by going here.
While you can access/purchase resource packages without an Embodia Membership, you will get the most out of a resource package if you have a Tier 2 or 3 Membership.
