Today I refer you to the Fangirl Interview with Rhonda Kotarinos, a pioneer in pelvic pain physical therapy. It was recently posted on Blog About Pelvic Pain, a website run and written by by Sara Sauder PT, DPT, a physical therapist in Austin.
This particular interview is aimed more at physical therapists than patients, but sometimes it's useful to see life from the other side of the lab coat. In reminds me that health professionals are not all-knowing, and behind the scenes they are still figuring out what works and what doesn't in a world where limited information leads to controversy about treatment options.
That in turn means that pelvic pain patients need to be even more active in their own care than patients who have a well-researched medical condition (not that those people are off the hook by any means.)
Thus, there is a lot of relevant material for patients in this interview.
Due to the lack of physician knowledge about the existence of physical therapy for pelvic pain, you may not have heard that physical therapy is a fit for you. I especially recommend this post if you are not aware of pelvic physical therapy, are currently in physical therapy, or have had limited success with it - who knows, you may learn something that you can pass on to your PT so they can treat you better.
