Pelvic Pain Explained: Endometriosis + Resource List

In Endometriosis by Jandra Mueller2 Comments

By Jandra Mueller, DPT, PHRC Encinitas

At PHRC we want to do our part to help people better understand pelvic pain syndromes and more importantly, help people suffering with these diagnoses get the help they need to recover. Since knowledge is power we created 6 videos and blog posts that we hope people find useful. This week, in our sixth webinar of the Pelvic Pain Explained Webinar series, I had the honor of talking about a topic I feel passionately about: endometriosis. Endometriosis is a complex disease that many women suffer from. There is a huge need for education in this population and in  this webinar I hope to do just that, educate more people about this disease! Hopefully the information in my webinar and in this blog posts will help people better understand how their symptoms happened and arm them with the tools they need to get better. Listed below are many of the resources I use and I mention many of them in the webinar.

  1. I highly suggest looking at qualified excision surgeons. Excision is the gold standard of surgery for endo. Nancy’s Nook group on Facebook has a vetted list of excision specialists, and those are the doctors you should consult before having any endo related surgeries.
