Moving Beyond Stretching: Tension is a Top-Down Thing

Join our fourth Pelvic Pain Matters webinar featuring the highly-regarded pelvic pain expert and physiotherapist, Carolyn Vandyken, who will look at the treatment implications for Chronic Pelvic Pain (CPP) patients from findings in a ground-breaking, new patient study.

Carolyn will be joined by Melina Kelly from Curtin University, Perth, who was instrumental in developing and overseeing the study.

The study strongly suggests that that movement is key to pain reduction and how certain types of movement can change pain and tension in the pelvic region much more dramatically than stretching.

Join Carolyn to learn how novel, interesting movement strategies may be more effective at changing how we guard and hold tension in our pelvis, moving beyond stretching of tight muscles to a more effective CPP solution.

This webinar is for:

  • Pelvic pain patients of all genders
  • Family and friends of pelvic pain patients
  • Professionals who treat pelvic pain patients or have an interest in starting up their own pelvic pain practice

Why should pelvic pain patients attend?

  1. Gain an appreciation of the role the central nervous system plays in persistent pain.
  2. Become self-empowered to change your relationship with tension in the pelvic floor muscles.

Why should professionals attend?

  1. Learn about a brand-new questionnaire to help identify the presence of sensory-motor changes in persistent pelvic pain.
  2. Discover a novel approach to alleviate pelvic floor muscle tension based on sensory-motor change, creating a sustainable resolution for persons in pain.

The webinar will feature real-life stories of others who have overcome chronic pelvic pain. They will be discussing why talking about their pelvic pain was a key element in their recovery.

All participants will have a chance to pose questions to Carolyn and the panel in the live Q&A session at the end of the webinar.

If you are unable to attend the live event – don’t worry. Simply buy your ticket and we will send you a recording of the session. You will not miss out!

Please find below a sample of some of my patient testimonials from over the years. I have not included them ALL here. Instead I have picked a handful of those that demonstrate a wide range of my skill sets, outcomes and patient opinions. I would therefore hope that you are able to gauge how I approach my methods of treatment. If you have any questions regarding any of these comments below or would like to know more about my treatment please contact me here

My aim is to take every individual patient I see and treat them as individuals. If I am not achieving this then I believe I am letting down that patient. It is therefore imperative that my approach is bespoke and tailored. Failure to do so is likely to result in an unsuccessful outcome.

From those testimonials listed below I hope to give you a flavour of what you can expect if you come and see me as a patient.
