Review quote

-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.- Reviewed by Anne Graham on behalf of Physiotherapy Practice and Research, October 2015 "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.

Reviewed by Anne Graham on behalf of Physiotherapy Practice and Research, October 2015 The book is a carefully crafted work that belongs in the hands of all hands-on clinicians who specialize in the subject matter or who want to specialize, and for others who simply desire to be more aware of it. Also as a relevant resource to practitioners who utilize the team approach. The book has solid, vast, theoretical underpinning within the first eight chapters, and the following eight chapters are specific to intervention with an abundance of hands-on techniques such that "Physical Medicine" practitioners can learn and integrate in their practice, or, at the very least, fine-tune current skills. This text is placed prominently on the reviewer's accessible bookshelf in the clinic, and it is endorsed with a 4.5/5 star recommendation. Jerry Hesch, MHS, PT
