This book was awesome. I had a baby and things just were not the ...um...SAME. I could not find too many people who understood my specific issue of constant stabbing pain and tightness after having a baby (sorry tmi), and even after two physical therapists, I was not better. I really felt pretty hopeless until I found this book. The author goes into a lot of detail about all kinds of issues for both men and women and she tells you to go slowly with the exercises/stretches (a lot of therapists wi ...more

Finally I found another book that addresses my specific chronic pain! I wish I could report whether their advice is helpful or not; but I just barely finished the book. However, most of the information "rings true" and doesn't sound like a hokey load of crap like some other health books.

A brilliant book written in an easily understood way. I recommend it to all of my chronic pelvic pain patients as well as those who have recent onset pelvic pain (e.g. painful scar after recent childbirth) to try to prevent chronic problems developing. I'd recommend the book rather than the kindle version as it's much easier to access the various exercise sections with the physical book. (I bought the kindle version first but before long ordered the book). If you have pain 'down below' & are ...more

I am four weeks post op from surgery excising endometriosis as well as a complete hysterectomy because of suspected adenomyosis. I still have some muscle pain that I suspect isn't going to go away without physical therapy.

I can't practice any of the exercises, stretches or massages mentioned in this book until I get the ok from the surgeon, so o have no idea if they will be helpful.

I did feel like I got a better idea of what to expect from physical therapy appointments, which is helpful in reli

This is a physical therapist's guide for natural healing for pelvic pain and abdominal complaints. The chapters have various steps outlining breathing, stretching, and massage techniques that have been successful when medications and surgery have not worked. A very thorough book!
