The Good News and the Bad News

Hello Everyone, Most of you who have read my posts probably know that I have been doing the Stanford/Wise-Anderson Protocol for some time (PT and Paradoxical Relaxation for about 1 year now). The Good News: For about 14 years I had urinary symptoms and pain in the scrotum, penis, and testicle areas,...

My wife has recently started to stretch me out in the internal pelvic floor and I don't know why I waited so long to let her do it (about a year of PT). I guess I always thought that she would screw up and put me back in bad pain. On the contrary she seems to do it almost as good as the PT, and in t...

I agree with all the other replies here in that you should get internal work on the pelvic floor. I can't imagine not getting the internal work done and getting any better. Man some of those trigger points and restrictions just will not go away without manual stretching and loosening of the tissue. ...

I believe the best explanation of why post-sex pain occurs is provided by Dr. Wise in the AHIP book. During orgasm, the pelvic floor goes into a spasm. The problem is that if the pelvic floor is already tight to begin with a spasm (orgasm) just makes things even tighter and can flare up the trigger ...

That is great news for sure ! You know I have really been doing a lot of research on trigger points lately and it is just amazing how many pain related problems they can cause and the Medical community misdiagnoses things over and over again. I have befriended a trigger point massage therapist latel...

I would stay away from Kegel excercises. All they do is further contract already tightened pelvic muscles and you don't need that. Relaxing the pelvic muscles is what is needed. Get the "A headache in the pelvis book". The good news is that your bad reaction to the Kegel excercises support the notio...

I strongly recommend you get the "A headache in the pelvis book" as I believe it will help you get the answers you are seeking. Of course always see your Doctor first to rule out anything else like an infection or what not. But the odds are at least 90% that the Doc will not find anything in which c...

Hi Richard, I will try to answer your question. Currently, I am only seeing my Physical Therapist about once every 3 weeks. I always feel better and looser in the pelvic floor after she stretches me out, it literally feels like my pelvis is hanging lower and looser as opposed to the up and tight fee...

I strongly recommend that you at least get the " A Headache in the Pelvis book".

I spent over a decade looking for the cause of my pelvic pain and finally found it in this book. The problem is in the muscles and I would say most likely this is what is causing your problem.

I would recommend you check with Dr Wise for a Physical Therapist reference--I don't know if you already did this and that is how you found your PT or not. When I first started, I had a choice between 2 PT's, one was very close and the other was 2 hours away, but I chose the latter because that is w...
