Pelvic Pain - The Trailhead Pelvic PT Way
Movement is a potent painkiller.
Pain does not mean my body is damaged.
Thoughts, emotions, and experiences affect pain.
I can train my overprotective pain system.

Examples of whom may we see.
People who fell on their tailbone, who went through trauma, who have sciatica, who suddenly changed how they exercise, who sit for long periods at a time. We may also see people like police officers or workers who wear tight tool belts around their hips.
