New York, NY (PRWEB) May 18, 2012
PT Perspective released a yoga DVD entitled “Your Pace Yoga: Relieving Pelvic Pain”. The creator, Dustienne Miller, is a Kripalu Yoga teacher and a physical therapist specializing in pelvic floor dysfunction. In this video she weaves together breath work, gentle postures, and meditation resulting in a user friendly home program.
Millions of men and women suffer from all varieties of pelvic pain including endometriosis, vulvodynia, interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome, coccydynia, chronic prostatitis, and pelvic floor hypertonicity/levator ani syndrome, and vaginismus. Proper diagnosis and treatment from a physician and working with a well trained pelvic floor physical therapist can alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life. A yoga home program is an additional modality to help promote comfort.
Yoga has proven to be effective in decreasing blood pressure, relieving stress, and diminishing pain. A study published in the January 2012 edition of the Journal of Pain showed yoga interventions to have positive outcomes for decreasing pain and disability.
The DVD “Your Pace Yoga: Relieving Pelvic Pain” is a great resource for augmenting treatment received in the physical therapy clinic and to maintain optimal health. It can be ordered on http://www.yourpaceyoga.com.
