Thanks Carl. I just wonder what David Wise thinks of treatment that isn't exactly modelled on the SP?

I guess symptom relief is of paramount importance. I agree though my protocal is working for me & I'm glad yours is for you!

I still cycle. stangely enough it doesnt effect me over short distances. Nor in fact does sitting too much if I make sure I control my natural instinct to tense at the moment!

Healing v symptom control

Hi guys, I've been doing largely well with my condition over the last couple of months. That despite a very stressful training course and beginning my new job (big anxiety provokers once upon a time). I do self administered trigger point work now bi-weekly on my abs, perineum and internally. I stret...

How many of us are caught up in staring at a computer all day to the point that we forget we even have a physical body? How many of us are bemoaning the past or fearing the future so intensely that we are absent from the present moment in a full, embodied sense- recalling the various definitions of...

Now I think I sort of obsess over this condition. So how do you break that? Take meds? Will relaxation break that? I don't know. Meds are not the answer. Some form of psychotherpay / psychiatry iis the only remedy IMO as the above poster said. I think that many people in the general population at l...

Having said that, I also believe that though TP massage is fine for short-term relief, in order to get real results you have to look at your whole body condition in terms of your build and your posture. Chronic ways of holding your body, postural habits, will surely, fundamentally affect your whole...

I dealt with irritable bowel syndrome for about 10 years, got that under comtrol, then went on to OCN for 7years, and then, when I finally learned how to control that, the CP started I must add here that many men talk of this one health problem replacing another scenario. It happened to me too. It ...

For the last 2 years I have done neurofeedback to monitor my brain waves because of years of anxiety and panic attacks. When I started the program, my brain waves were all over the map spiking real high. Just last night I did a session. My brain waves are smoothe and as my therapist joked with me a...

A read of the Trigger Point Therapy workbook by Davies demonstrates that trigger points in the stomach can cause gas
This is very true and I have helped my gas / stomach issues by working on stomach trigger points!

it reduces sympathetic nervous system activity, which is probably overactive in people with CPPS I personally believe that for may of us meditation / formal relaxation needs to be accompanied by a wider protocol to calm our overactive nervous systems. A couple of examples - Adrenal fatigue - could ...

So it's very important to remember the relaxed state your body is in and to continue to do all the relaxing things, stretching, Prosta-Q, Uroxatral, PT as needed, hot baths and control over your thoughts of tension.
Well said!

I think for the people who have inflammation that is from tension more or less and not diet related have to stay on this stuff to manage the irritation we get as we deal with relaxing these muscles. It's a way to keep in line our bodies that are sometimes working against us. Almost like an autoimmu...

Bit of a shame this after the length of time Scooby has been doing tP work. I think many more months will be needed perhaps for a fuller recovery as many men testify. I have noticed though that more than one man has come back to the forum relatively quickly after completing the sP & getting better. ...

And also some quarters argue that long term pain (many years) gets "wired" into the brain and nervous system. Almost like a "pain link" is established that keeps perpetuating itself. Is the SP one way of breaking this loop or to a certain extent due to muscle, cell, nerve meory is our pain never rea...
