This multi factorial condition affects every individual in a unique manner. The Pelvic Pain Clinic places great emphasis on understanding the multiple factors affecting a client suffering with CPPS and Prostatitis including Biological, Psychological and Sociological. With this in mind Karl uses a BioPsychoSocial approach in the treatment of all his patients
An extensive client consultation and assessment is necessary to understand the genesis of the condition and how best to treat the individual. Prior to your visit we will email you the ‘Client Intake Forms.’ These need to be filled in beforehand and emailed back prior to the initial Skype/telephone consultation. The subsequent treatment will be engineered on the information provided in the Intake Forms and discussions taking place during the initial consultation.
The emphasis of the treatment focuses on the following key areas. Each session is bespoke and individual to the patient and will carry greater weight to some of the following techniques:
- Pain management and education
- Therapeutic movement analysis and re-education
- Relaxation techniques
- Lifestyle adaptations
- Internal assessment of the pelvic floor
- Manual massage therapy
- Trigger point therapy
The Pelvic Pain Clinic places great emphasis on the patient being the driver in their recovery. Because self-care is central to a patient’s full recovery, you will be provided with a bespoke home care programme. This allows you to take control of your symptoms from the comfort of your own home.
A multidisciplinary treatment approach may be advised to enhance recovery. Alongside his own highly successful approach to treating CPPS and Prostatitis Karl works with a team of men’s health therapists who specialise in the following treatments – Acupuncture, Biomechanics, Micro-biology, Physiotherapy and Trauma recovery. To discuss these options and to find out what the best approach to your particular case may be please ask Karl for further details
