Discover what you need to live a pain free life

Dynamic Contraction Technique - Resistance Stretching for C.P.P.S (Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome), Prostatitis Type III, Pelvic Floor Pain & Dysfunction in both Men & Women, Interstitial cystitis (Male & Female), Pudendal Neuralgia and Hard Flaccid

Dear Friend,

When I was told I had prostatitis at the age of nineteen I was prescribed ciprofloxin.  If I had known what the next 14 years had in store I may have asked for cyanide.  What followed was endless rounds of antibiotics, countless urologist appointments, prostate injections, years of desperate pushing, prodding and cracking by pelvic floor physical therapists, trigger point injections, botox and finally into the operating theatre to have not one but three pudendal nerve entrapment surgeries.  My experience of pelvic pain and my desperate search for relief may sound extraordinary yet I know it is shared by millions of pelvic pain sufferers across the globe.

I want to tell you right now that there is hope. That with commitment and training you can make a full recovery from pelvic pain. On this website you can learn about and immediately begin a completely new approach to pelvic pain and pelvic floor dysfunction.

If you have pelvic pain your muscles feel incredibly tight.  The tighter your pelvic floor muscles feel the more therapies or treatments you probably have tried to relieve the tightness.  

Do any of these sound familiar?

  • Trigger Point therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Stretching
  • Trigger point wands
  • Trigger point injections
  • Dry needling
  • Prostate injections
  • Corrective exercise 
  • Pudendal Nerve Surgery
  • Yoga
  • Pilates
  • Meditation
  • Manual Therapies
  • Massage
  • Relaxation therapies
  • Lifestyle changes

... and the list goes on but nothing is working.  You feel like you're at the end of your rope with no solution in sight. Your muscles feel just as tight as they did before.  

How do you treat muscle tension?

This was a question I was obsessed with for 2 years.  I suffered from pelvic pain for 14 years and eventually recovered from pelvic pain through a bio mechanics movement programme called Restorative Exercise. I went on to train in this programme and became a Restorative Exercise specialist and for 2 years worked with other pelvic pain patients.  My results however while teaching this programme were mixed. Some people did very well with some of my clients documenting their success on mens health forums and youtube. However others did not improve at all.  This was not acceptable to me and I was determined to find an effective approach for muscle tension.

The mainstream view of pelvic pain is that it is caused by excessive muscular tension in the muscles in and around the pelvic floor. This is a view that I share. Where I differ from the mainstream view is in how this muscle tension is treated.

There is a very simple reason why the majority of treatments do not work for pelvic pain.  The majority of treatments for pelvic pain focus on RELAXING Muscles.  This is an ineffective approach. This approach leads to pelvic pain patients wasting time and spending thousands of dollars on ineffective treatments.

In order to treat muscle tension you should not relax muscles.  You need to do the opposite. Muscle tension is treated by CONTRACTING muscles.   

Muscles will only stretch if they CONTRACT while LENGTHENING  

If you take only one thing from my website make sure it is the statement above. That knowledge will allow you to recover and save you time and thousands of dollars on ineffective treatment.  If I had known this I would not have had to suffer pelvic pain for 14 years.  I would have recovered from pelvic pain after a few months not years.  I did not need endless trigger point treatment, I did not need manual therapy and I definitely did not need pudendal nerve surgery.  The soloution was astonishingly simple. I just needed someone to show me how to treat muscle tension.

Stretching and Strengthening are NOT opposites, you can do both at the same time.

My research into muscle tension led to me training in a technique called Dynamic Contraction Technique. Dynamic Contraction Technique was created by USA Physical therapist Nic Bartolotta. Nic Bartolotta is a flexibility specialist to professional athletes and major sports teams across the United States. For the last year I have been working with Nic Bartolotta to design a Dynamic Contraction Technique Program for Pelvic Pain and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction.

Dynamic Contraction Technique uses muscle contractions to treat muscle tension. It uses all three different types of muscle contraction – concentric, isometric and eccentric contractions to release the muscle tension in and around the pelvic floor.  It is the final eccentric contraction which treats muscle tension. For an explanation of how an eccentric contraction treats muscle tension please watch this short video presented by Nic Bartolotta.

 
 

Muscles are very simple things. They can do one thing – Contract. That is it.  They can either contract and shorten (a concentric muscle contraction)  or contract while being forced to lengthen (an eccentric contraction).

In the Dynamic Contraction Technique course for pelvic pain you will be using resistance stretching to treat your pelvic pain.  Let me assure you that you will not have performed this style of stretching before. This form of stretching is not taught on any physical therapy degree course in the United States or the UK.  The style of stretching you will find in pelvic pain books is passive or static stretching. These forms of stretching are ineffective for treating muscle tension. A common questions I recieve is ''is this program like Amy Stein's Pelvic Pain program?''  The answer is no. This course is completely different to that program.  Dynamic Contraction Technique uses muscle contractions in particular eccentric contractions as outlined in the video above and in the diagram below. 

 Dynamic Contraction Technique uses eccentric training to restore both elasticity and strength to muscle and connective tissue.

Getting Started

 pelvic pain

Dynamic Contraction Technique offers a completely new and effective approach to treating the muscular tension of pelvic pain and pelvic floor dysfunction. You can begin applying DCT to your own body immediately with the new Online 6-week DCT course I have created with Nic Bartolotta.  This is available through the National Resistance Stretching Association (NRSA) below. This course is performed mainly on your own. While it does include some partner assisted exercises the vast majority of the course can be followed individually.  This is a course that puts you back in control of your own recovery for less than the cost of two pelvic floor physical therapy sessions. 

Take Back Your Life!

  • Learn why the pelvic floor is not the primary problem. The pelvic floor is responding to tension in other areas of the body. Treatments which focus on the pelvic floor routinely fail
  • A detailed explanation of why pelvic pain and dysfunction occurs. 
  • Extensive lectures and interviews with Nic and David on how Dynamic Contraction Technique works and why this is a unique and revolutionary approach to pelvic pain and dysfunction. You will not have stretched like this before. 
  • Interviews discussing the psychological effects of pelvic pain. Discussion about the depression patients experience when multiple treatments do not work.
  • Step by Step video exercises explaining DCT resistance exercises.
  • An Intensive 5-6 day weekly training program
  • Arm, yourself with the strength, confidence and perspective that resolution is within sight. 
  • Experience rapid gains in mobility and flexibility.

Testimonial from a client who recovered with online Dynamic Contraction Technique

Below is a testimonial written by a client who is based in New Zealand.  Andrew recovered by learning Dynamic Contraction Technique from me via Skype. It shows that no matter where you are in the world you can recover from chronic pelvic pain. 

 "Two years ago my world came crashing down. What had been an aching back suddenly became full blown burning pain, preventing me from sitting, bending, lifting – anything. Pelvic pain followed days later effecting digestion and urinary function. Thereafter I had severe foot pain, burning limbs, insomnia – the works. I tried everything, from physio to botox injections. None of it worked at all. I couldn’t sit, stand, lie down, crouch, lift – absolutely zero. With my pain often a 10 out of 10 24/7. I came across David’s website after seeing numerous specialists across Australiasia; chronic pain clinics, psychologists, neuro-surgeons – everyone I could reach. Within 3 weeks of seeing David my pain had reduced by about 30%, and within a further month, I estimate my pain had reduced to about 70-80%. It was that simple. These days I get a few niggles, but nothing I can’t manage. I’m back riding my road bike up to an hour. I ride my mountain bike. I swim 1-2km straight. I can run up to 1 hour 30mins. I do full-on cross fit sessions max’ing out on all the exercises. I travel long haul and pretty much do whatever I want. I never think about the pain anymore. I have figured out that when I do have a niggle it’s often because I’m anxious or stressed, so I feel like the remaining 30% of my recovery has been due to better management of stress, anxiety, rage and hate. I’m 42 with young kids and a stressful job, so kind of a reciepe for that kind of thing. Anyway, without David, I don’t know what path I would have taken, but I was seriously considering giving up on things. People who have never experienced chronic pain have no idea what its like. And yet, with people like David available through the web, anyone can recover 100% and fully participate in everything they ever used to.''
