Innovative Treatment For Pelvic Pain Is Outlined In Newest Edition Of Book, A Headache In The Pelvis

Men and women have been suffering for years with chronic pelvic pain that often does not respond to conventional methods of treatment. In the bestselling book, A Headache in the Pelvis, Dr. David Wise and Dr. Rodney Anderson outline a new understanding and treatment for chronic pelvic pain syndromes that does not require medication or surgical interventions.

Both women and men suffer from chronic pelvic pain syndromes. A Headache In The Pelvis explains that in a large majority of cases, particularly for men, the problem of pelvic pain and urinary dysfunction is misdiagnosed as an infection and treated with antibiotics. Unfortunately, repeated rounds of antibiotics have not been effective in the treatment of male pelvic pain when the source of the pain is found in chronically contracted pelvic muscles.

Dr. David Wise And Dr. Rodney Anderson Form The Wise-Anderson Protocol

Dr. David Wise, a psychologist who experienced pelvic discomfort himself, developed his innovative approach to treating pelvic pain working with Dr. Rodney Anderson, professor of Urology at Stanford University. The resulting treatment method is referred to as the Wise-Anderson Protocol, also commonly known as the Stanford Protocol.

A Headache In The Pelvis outlines the new understanding and treatment of the Wise-Anderson Protocol. The book introduces a new paradigm in understanding muscle based pelvic pain and emphasizes the necessity of patient self treatment in the rehabilitation of a chronically contracted pelvic floor.

The newest edition of A Headache In The Pelvis includes a detailed explanation of the philosophical and scientific basis of the Wise-Anderson Protocol as well as illustrated chapters on the methodology of rehabilitating a chronically contracted pelvic floor basin. A Headache In The Pelvis includes a description of how anxiety figures centrally into chronic pelvic pain syndromes and discusses the behavioral and psychological intervention of the Wise-Anderson Protocol.
