Did you know that June is Men’s Health Awareness Month? To follow up that month, we wanted to update the resources we have for Pudendal Neuralgia. Below you will find the latest and greatest information both in blog and video format! We compiled information from guest speakers, Do’s and Don’ts, yoga poses to alleviate pain and much more!
Interview with Dr. Conway– Pudendal Neuralgia and Pudendal Nerve Entrapment; a discussion about comprehensive diagnosis and treatment.
3 Poses, 3 Ways for Pudendal Neuralgia– Melissa covers 3 poses, using props for variations, to help you design a practice that meets your body where it is today. These pose variations are designed to relieve tension in the posterior chain and may provide relief for those working with symptoms of pudendal neuralgia.
Yoga for Pudendal Neuralgia- Working with neuropathic symptoms around the genitals, anus or perineum? Allow Melissa Patrick, PT, DPT, RYT to guide you through an exploration of movements to find relief and ease in the entire body.
Therapeutic Backbends for Pudendal Neuralgia– Let’s open through the front line of the body to reduce tension along the posterior chain. These supportive and gentle backbends can be a great way to reduce strain & stretch along the pathway of the pudendal nerve. Backbends have other benefits, too! They help us to breathe more deeply by improving recruitment of the diaphragm. The better belly breaths we can get, the more our pelvic floor can lengthen and relax. Not to mention, deep breathing helps to calm our nervous system and induce physiological quieting. Finally, backbends have a natural antidepressant effect! Because backbends activate the heart, they invigorate and uplift the mood. Happy heart opening!
