I recommend this textbook to any PT who wants to treat male patients with chronic tension myalgia of the pelvis. With the additional inclusion of a chapter on pelvic pain in women and specific descriptions of external and internal soft tissue release techniques, this text is a must-have for PT's new to this form of treatment on this population of patients. Easy enough reading for all healthcare providers and probably most educated non-clinicians.

I read this book and found the information in it very practical and helpful. The techniques for relaxation and reducing stress can help not only for pelvic pain but for all physical pain. I initially read it for a good friend of mine who was experiencing pretty severe pelvic pain but actually found it very helpful for my own situation which is 4th stage metastatic breast cancer to the bones. The techniques discussed in this book especially in the section on "Paradoxical Relaxation" allowed me to learn to relax rather than resist the pain and therefore the pain diminished quite rapidly. What a surprise! I am very grateful to the authors for empowering myself and others. By being given some very simple tools we can have control over our lives again from the debilitating effects of chronic pain.
The friend that I initially read the book for went on to take David Wise's clinic and while not completely gone, his pain is greatly reduced and he continues to use the techniques he learned at the clinic to manage his pain. He too is very grateful. I highly recommend this book.

Folks,

I am one of David's original patients, in the sense that I first saw him in late 2000 before the first edition came out and before he started the clinics. I was living in the bay area at the time and I was able to see him 3 times over the course of about 8 months. Each time he basically just gave me encouragement and feedback as I went through the healing process at my home. Well it's now June 8, 2010 and I'm happy to report that I am still essentially symptom-free. To be honest if I get extremely stressed out over a sustained period my symptoms will creep back a tiny bit but never in 8 years have they retreated to anywhere remotely close to where they were at the peak. I hardly ever think about it anymore and I only do a relaxation lesson occasionally now because I enjoy it. My symptoms used to consume my thoughts all day long and I would comb various forums at work in desperation. I read the 1 star reviews here from people whom the treatment has failed and my heart goes out to you guys but I think it's simply dead wrong to call the protocol a charade. Hardly anything in medicine works 100% of the time for everyone. Based on my own experience I have no reason to doubt the veracity of other positive reviews. It may very well sound cliche or canned to skeptical ears but I can say without hyperbole that this protocol saved my life. At my symptoms' worst I damn near lost my job and had to move back in with my mother. My life is no less stressful at present - in fact I have to deal with more stress than ever - but my symptoms have remained at bay. For myself, the deep relaxation lessons in the morning and at night were the absolutely critical part of the protocol.

If you have been diagnosed with non-specific prostititis or frequent urination that does not respond to medication, YOU MUST get and read this book. This authoritative volume written by a PHD and MD urologist describes the ground-breaking Stanford Medical Center protocol that has successfully treated many men and women who suffer from pelvic pain syndrome that is often misdiagnosed as a disease or dysfunction of the protstate, bladder, or kidneys.

After years of suffering, I am finally receiving treatment that I am confident will deal with the underlying issues that created the symptoms that 3 urologists, hundreds of pills, and countless tests did not properly address.

I am now 22 years old and have always been a very healthy individual and trained some kind of sport almost every day since I can remember myself. Then, one day, without a warning, I collapsed down to the floor and experienced the most pain I have ever felt. I had no idea of what was going on inside my body and I lay on the floor for probably 30 minutes before I made an attempt to stand up.

From this moment on until I attended the September Clinic 2009 in Santa Rosa, San Fransisco I was in constant pain 24/7. My pain level was 9.5-10/10 at all times, no exceptions! During the first months I began to experience all kinds of symptoms and over this time I had every single symptom described in this book, except the urinary ones. I was terrified. For the first time in my life I began to isolate myself socially and could not see why I should continue participating in life. I quit my job and only attended important classes at school. I experienced a dark depression every single day because of the immense constant pain which didn`t go away, despite everything I tried. I attempted to exercise, but the pain was so great I just broke into tears.

Discovering this book was a huge relief for me. When I read that chronic pelvic pain was, in most cases, because of tension in the muscular system around the pelvis my eyes filled with tears because from this moment on I knew I could gain my health back! I knew this because I believe that almost every muscle in the body can be trained, massaged and stretched to a desired state. I read this book in a way I have never read a book before. I felt like this was a godsend to me, like the book spoke to me.
