    I am not completely symptom free but my pelvic floor muscles tend to get tight and the internal work my PT does helps to relax those muscles. She also works on my back and abdominal muscles which are all connected to the pelvic floor muscles. I do not really have any problems when I eat certain foods so do not follow a diet or take any supplements. I am also a PT but do not have training in this area. Been going to my PT on and off for several years and she is really good!

    For a couple of months but I started to feel relief after a couple of visits although you will be a little sore.

    Jen74,
    Sorry to hear this caused a flare. My first appointment was the same, which left me with a lot of pelvic pain and pressure. I told my PT at my second appointment, she decided to hook me up to the TENS unit after the therapy session to settle everything down, it did help. I am feeling much better the second time around.
    Wish you the best for a great Second session.

    Hi Neseil.
    Well, I only went to one appointment so far, which was really my evaluation. The therapist rubbed and massaged parts of my pelvic area and also checked internally with her finger, she just pressed to feel the pelvic floor,she did not do any massaging though. She also gave me these stretching excerises to do at home daily.
    To be honest, I have been in a huge flare ever since. I dont know of it was from all the massaging she did or from the excerises I have been doing that she gave me.
    I think she is good, but I just dont know if this is going to be the thing for me or not. I am going to ask my urogyne about it today and see what he says. I just find it odd that I feel so much worse.
    The only time she triggered any pain in my bladder during my appointment was when she did the internal exam and pressed on the bladder area. So that is where I am at right now. How did you feel the day after your appointment? Did your bladder feel worse?

    PT so far??

    Jen,
    If you don't mind me asking, how has your treatment been so far?
    I have only had two sessions, I'm trying to stay optimistic. So far I have refused medications other than Enablex for frequency.
    Wednesday's session included a lower spine and front to back/inner and outer thigh massage. It seemed to trigger pains in the bladder which lead me to believe it was doing it's job in some way......have you done anything like that???? The PT then hooked me up to the TENS unit for 20 minutes to calm everything down......I'd love one for home, it seemed to really help.
    Any feedback would be greatley appreciated.
