The Certificate of Achievement in Pelvic Health Physical Therapy is an optional route if you wish to take the next level in your career. The Academy of Pelvic health physical Therapy developed the Certificate of Achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy (CAPP) to certify that a physical therapist has completed a comprehensive education, training, and testing program for the management of patients with diagnoses of pelvic health dysfunction, such as urinary incontinence and pelvic pain. The CAPP is awarded to physical therapists who complete four courses of training in pelvic physical therapy (Level 1, Level 2 Pelvic Pain, Level 2 Bowel Dysfunction, Level 3), pass written and clinical testing requirements at each level, and successfully complete a written case report.
