Published Reviews

"At all times the book emphasizes the importance of an integrated approach when treating patients with chronic pelvic pain, whether it's looking at structures outside of the pelvis itself or the more psychosocial elements to the condition. I found the chapter on breathing and chronic pelvic pain particularly insightful, as it highlighted the relationship between the respiratory diaphragm and the pelvic floor and proposed that disorders of breathing need to be addressed in the patient with chronic pelvic pain."
