  1. Here’s a possible blog topic: Musculoskeletal causes of pelvic pain (e.g. hip pathology). I’m someone for whom hip arthroscopic surgery helped a great deal. Thanks!

    1. Great idea Isabel! We will def. tackle that one! And so glad that hip arthoscopic surgery helped you! Warmly, Steph

  2. Hi, I just wanted to say you guys rock!!!!

    I am a physio in Brisbane, Australia and treat general musculoskeletal as well as women’s health/pelvic floor, and have seen many pelvic pain and overactive PF patients! Your website/tweets/blogs are really great for educating all physios and patients and it’s so great to see your passion come through in your writing!!!! I love the videos as well!

    Keep up the excellent work and thanks again!!

    1. Hi Lori!

      Thank you so much for your kind words!

      All our very best,
      Steph and Liz

    1. Thank you Lori! We’d love to hear more from you in the future, so please continue to get in touch!

  3. Sorry to go off topic, but I’m looking for a bit of info and Google is being difficult!

    I am a 27 year old male and have had serious, painful PFD issues for years. It became worse about a month and a half ago, following ejaculation.

    Some weeks into this flare – if that’s what it is – I developed sacral and tailbone sensitivity/pain. I know the tailbone can be troubled by PFD, but what about the sacrum? That’s the worrisome one, as I can’t find many references to it. Thanks for any advice!

    1. Hi Jay,

      Yes, the sacrum can be involved in PFD pain. I hope you are able to see a good PT to help you with your PFD issues.

      All my best,
