I may have interstitial cystitis, could your program help with my symptoms?
By: Dr. Brianne Grogan, PT, DPT
Your symptoms of bladder pressure, urgency, frequency, and occasional minor leaking -- all of which worsen when you're feeling stressed -- are consistent with interstitial cystitis and/or overactive bladder, both of which can be helped using the Overcome Pelvic Pain Program.
The reason is twofold:
1) On a physical level, the program will help relax and release the muscles in your pelvic region, which have (likely) become tense and tight due to the issues you've been experiencing. Often, people with pressure, urgency, and leakage tense up in response to the discomfort (and/or to "keep everything in"). This can lead to patterns of chronic muscular holding and dysfunction over time. Overcome can help resolve that for you!
2) On a mental/emotional level, the program will calm and relax your nervous system, which will help reduce the symptoms you're experiencing.
Working with both the mind and body will help resolve your symptoms at a root-cause level... Not just providing a "bandaid solution" (like medication, for example), but actually getting to the heart of the matter so that you can experience lasting relief and truly heal.
I hope this helps!
