Going back to the original question, "How do you know you've got a good PT?" based on the comments on this thread and recommendations I've received from Dr. Wise, I think the following would be a good checklist to determine if you are receiving effective PT ( This is assuming, of course, that you ar...

Thanks a lot, lookouth. Their perspective on pelvic pain so closely parallels the Stanford/Wise-Anderson Protocol that I hoped there might be more detailed info than you describe. You've saved me a few bucks.

CppsDad, et al, I have found at least one of the guinea pigs you were hoping for. In my last PT session, my therapist told me that when she was going through training for myofascial trigger point release therapy of the pelvic floor, the therapists worked on each other. Therefore, she has evaluated a...

Yesterday my PT completed the first training session with my wife. Prior to the training, I had advised my PT that my wife has small hands, and the PT said that in my case that would not be a problem. I'm not sure if this was because I have a relatively small pelvic area for a male or if all of my t...

This is helpful. Your experience seems to confirm that people can find competent PT's and that regularly scheduled frequent treatments are critical to success. In my conversations with Dr.Wise he did say this about finding a qualified PT to treat pelvic floor dysfunction though trigger point release...

I wish someone here with a little influence could convince Dr. Wise to conduct paid phone consultations with willing Physical Therapists-- the object being to: (1) Impart critical information for pelvic floor rehabilatation per the SP; (2) Assess the competence of the PT;(3) Based on the findings of...

How do you know you've got a good PT?

After some success using the AHIP book as a self-help guide, I found a PT in my area using the Internation Pelvic Pain Society webpage. She said she was thoroughly trained in myofascial trigger point release therapy for pelvic floor dysfunction, but I would be her first male patient. She offered to ...

How do you know you've got a "good" PT?

Recently there was a very informative thread on this site that explored the fears, anxieties, embarassments, etc. associated with internal PT treatment of the pelvic floor. I think it would be equally useful to share details of PT treatment regarding frequency of treatments, assessments by PT's, dur...

Back to your question on a comfortable seating pad. I had trouble with the instability of the inner tube as well. My wife simply took two medium sized towels and folded each of them into a 14-inch long by 6-inch wide butt cheek pad. She made covers for each of them and tethered them together at one ...

Thanks for the reply. I live in So Cal, so the Stanford option is definitely a viable one for me. Based upon what I've given you, then, you feel that trying the Stanford/Wise-Anderson Protocol would likely be more fruitful for me than pursuing any more urological testing or an antibiotic regime for ...
