I believe PNE is a bogus (incorrect) diagnosis. I know Dr Wise thinks so too. Trigger points and restrictions can certainly constrict the Pudendial Nerve, but again the Trigger points and restrictions are the source of the problem. This is the same principle of Sciatica, where Piriformis trigger poi...

Trigger Points ? Ain't the Earth Flat ?

I am posting this really to just restate the main message in the Claire Davies Trigger Point Manual. That main message is that as long as Trigger Points are not recognized, erroneous diagnosis will be made perpetually. A case in point: Recently my sister was in a bad car accident and she hurt her ne...

Chris, I am very happy to hear the good news. It is very encouraging that you are having such success and you are in the very early stages. Again, I want to emphasize that the more you practice with the wand and Theracane, the more skilled you become and of course the better you feel mentally and ph...

My advice to you is work on both the Mind and the Body. Specifically, for the Body: 1. Learn about Trigger Point Massage (Headache in The Pelvis and Claire Davies Trigger point manual books should become your bibles) 2. Find a Pelvic floor Physical Therapist who does internal Trigger point work 3.Do...

Thanks Chris, It sounds like you are making at least some progress. When you hit spots that recreate your pain, stay on those spots for at least a minute or two. Try to relax and deep breathe also when you are using the wand, this helps the muscles relax more too. Eventually you will find what works...

I would bet money that the problem you are having is in the muscles-- my guess would be in the lower abdominals or psoas muscles and\or anterior pelvic muscles. I used to have so many different pain problems in my body, none could be helped by doctor's, all the problems were healed by Trigger point ...

Chris, I insert the wand much further than the line on the wand that you mentioned. As you said that line is only a few inches so I go several inches deeper. To get at my Piriformis muscles I find that I almost insert the entire wand. I praise you on your courage for trying this. But if you have had...

Hi All, One point I wanted to make about using a wand. I am a married heterosexual man so I understand there is a psychological concern about what it means to use a wand. The most common stressful thought that I had went something like this: "If other people found out that I do this wand work they w...

Carld, In many ways I agree with your assessment of Byron Katie. Sometimes she does seem to be "way out there". However, I have still found her simple technique to be highly effective at reducing stress. Remember, her approach is the cognitive method that Dr Wise himself recommends to be the best as...

Rider Fan, What has been helpful to me for reducing anxiety is some type of cognitive work. There are many different styles such as Byron katie, Albert Ellis, and many others. Byron katie is what I always recommend to people, the website is at http://www.thework.com. The main gist of this cognitive ...

I have some information on the wand that I use: The name of the product is called "Slender G Spot, 7 inch". My Physical Therapist said she liked the design of this product to be used as wand because it has a curve to it much like a Theracane. This product is a vibrator, but I use it as a wand -- I d...

Achamasi, I recommend finding a Physical Therapist that can instruct you on how to use the wand. The basic principle is the same as how a therane is used. There are a few different techniques such as static holding pressure, short stroking massaging back and forth over the Trigger Point \ Restricted...

Scooby, With a wand you can bet much better leverage and can reach in places the fingers probably cannot. The wand I have has a curve to it, much like a Theracane. I don't remember the brand name, but I will look it up and get back to you. You know, when I first started to use the wand, I felt great...

Another NoMoPain Update

Hello Everyone, Life still treating me very good. Sitting, no problem, Sex, no problem, getting up in middle of night to pee only once, no problem. Do yourself a favor and get a wand and learn how to use it. Hey, we use a Theracane on ourselves, so why not use a wand ? I know, it is so weird the tho...

Scooby, I suggest starting with the "Loving What Is" audio version. This is what Dr Wise suggests in his AHIP book, as the audio version allows you to really feel how the process works as opposed to reading the book. Incidentally, a guy at my work started doing the Enquiry work and has found he is a...
