Scientists at the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) reported encouraging findings on a new treatment for endometriosis using a pelvic physical therapy that feels similar to deep tissue massage. Until now the primary treatments for endometriosis pain have involved either surgery or drugs.
The manual physical therapy (Wurn Technique®) decreased pain throughout the menstrual cycle, significantly decreased intercourse pain and improved sexual function for women. Relief continued six weeks after therapy, according to an abstract published by Fertility and Sterility (9/2006).
This new technique has been getting a lot of press lately and rightly so. Deep tissue can help to clear blockages and smooth out adhesions. This treatment is being performed at Clear Passages which has locations all over the United States. Wurn, the technique used, is specifically helpful for those experiencing endometriosis and blocked fallopian tubes.
