I wanted to share my story of how I overcame 14 years of chronic pelvic pain. I am a 35 year old man from Somerset in the UK. I first experienced pelvic pain when I was 19 and it continued until I was 34. Over the years I tried everything, prostate injections, 6 years of myofascial physical therapy with 4 different therapists and I had pudendal nerve surgery 3 times in the USA. I tried all the usual pain meds like tramadol, codeine and lyrica. I was told by a leading pelvic pain Dr in the UK that my pelvic pain had centralized in my nervous system and that I had to just look at ways to manage it.
I eventually found Restorative Exercise a program created by bio mechanist Katy Bowman. After dedicating myself to this program I am now free of pelvic pain. I decided to train in Restorative Exercise and am now treating pelvic pain patients.
