Self-Care for Pelvic Pain is an excellent resource for people experiencing pelvic pain and the practitioners who treat them. Written by pelvic health specialist Sandra Hilton, PT, DPT, MS, the book was written for people experiencing groin pain, genital pain, or pain while sitting, riding a bike, or having sex.
This informative guide explains the different types of pain, as well as common pelvic conditions. It then introduces sensory integration, which is a way to gently retrain your system, including the painful areas, the nervous system, and your brain. Purchase the book individually, or with the Sensory Integration Toolkit (SIT KIT), which includes seven balls of varying sizes and densities that can be used to perform the sensory integration techniques introduced in the book.
This clear, simple guide includes step-by-step sensory integration exercises and guidelines for how to perform them, as well as guidance on how to choose the right sensory integration tool for each technique. For people experiencing pelvic pain, this book offers a path toward feeling better by using pleasurable sensation and fun movement to improve the body's ability to tolerate normal pressures.
Softcover; 64 pages. Illustrated.
