Arresting the tidal flow: Pelvic dysfunction in fibromyalgia.

Pelvic dysfunction is prevalent in woman, but can also affect men. Sexual dysfunction and pain, impotence, bladder and uterine dysfunction, rectal pain and other disruptions involving the pelvis and surrounding structures and organs can be caused by the presence of chronic active myofascial trigger points. Since we now know these neurologic imitators exist in as many as nine out of ten fibromyalgia patients, and are body wide, we can better understand why what is, is. It warms my heart to know that all we talk about in the book is being validated providing hope.

Sneak Peek from page 111, Integrative Therapies for Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Myofascial Pain: The Mind Body Connection, Chapter Two “Communicating Your Healthcare Needs ©:

“Vulvodynia is pain in the external female genitalia. It can be caused by untreated pelvic floor trigger points. Oragel may help numb the pain of vulvodynia. As discussed under irritable bladder, there are pelvic floor treatments available. If you find TrPs in the pelvic floor (between the vagina and rectum, or the vulva, sitting on a therapeutic ball can be used to treat them.

I would suggest that you use a soft chair to avoid applying too much pressure to the area.”

If you have internal myofascial trigger points causing pain and dysfunction, chronic urinary tract infection, interstitial cystitis or any of the aforementioned problems, you won’t want to miss this report by pelvic messenger, Elisabeth Oas.
