An interview below with David McCoid and Greg Clark. Learn about Greg’s recovery from hard flaccid and pelvic pain with the Dynamic Contraction Technique online course.

Hard flaccid is a condition where the penis remains flaccid but is in a constricted state and is hard to the touch. Hard Flaccid is caused by muscle and connective tissue tension particulary in the lower abdomen which limits blood flow to the penis. Hard flaccid is not a term recognised by the medial profession, it’s a term which originated online, a term used by sufferers themselves to describe the condition. In my opinion this is a common condition and I get enquiries from across the world regarding hard flaccid. It affects men of all ages. Freedom from pelvic is the first website to offer an online course for this condition.

If you have questions about this course I offer a free skype session, please email me at to arrange this.

The pelvic floor is not the primary problem in cases of hard flaccid. While it is tight and constricted the musculature is reacting to tension throughout the whole pelvis and hips. Sufferers find that manual therapy which focuses on trigger points and internal treatment is not helpful for this conditon. Trigger points as described by Travell and Simons do not exist and have been comprehensively refuted (Ref). Further articles debunking trigger point thoery can be found here.

Tension in the glutes, hips, hamstrings,adductors and abdomen are a major factor in this condition. When tension in these muscles are reduced this condition can resolve. Recovery is over months not weeks but it is possible to recover from this condition. You will be using Dynamic Contraction Technique, a unique form of resistance stretching, to achieve this. I have created the course with the creator of DCT, physical therapist Nic Barotolotta. You can learn about how DCT treats muscle tension in the video below.

Dear Friend

hard flaccid

My name is David McCoid. For 14 years I suffered… and I mean suffered with pelvic pain causing a variety of symptoms that drove me absolutely crazy. I did what almost every single person I have helped did; researched websites, chatted for hours on forums, went to doctors upon doctors to be told that I had and treated for non-existent diseases and issues.

I first began to experience pelvic pain at the age of nineteen. This condition continued for 14 years until I found Katy Bowman’s Restorative Exercise™ at the age of 34. During the 14 years I was in pain, I tried numerous treatments such as prostate injections, pelvic floor physical therapy in the UK and the USA and pudendal nerve entrapment surgery.  As a result of my pudendal nerve surgeries I have had my sacro tuberous ligament severed on both sides, my piriformis muscle has been resected on both sides (the nerve is cut to the muscle so the muscle can not function) and 50% of my adductor magnus tendon has been cut away on both sides. To add insult to literal injury… my pudendal nerve surgeries had no effect on my pain or symptoms.

As someone who has experienced pelvic pain and dysfunction, I know the desperation you are experiencing in your search for relief or a cure. I am fully aware of the crushing blow this condition has on self-esteem and confidence.  I always felt that I wore a mask to the outside world, a mask that showed I was coping and cheerful. It was only my family and some close friends who saw the real me, someone that frequently had suicidal thoughts, was depressed and truly desperate to find relief from something that had no real treatment or cure.

A Curse and a Blessing

My 14 years of horrific pain has given me a very unique perspective that I believe is my greatest asset in ridding the world of this insidious condition.  My hope is that when you see me living my life pain-free as a normal individual, no longer having to put on my coping mask, you can be open and honest about how you are feeling and begin on the road to recovery.

Throughout my 14 years I tried the majority of treatments promoted by doctors and physical therapists.  I am well aware there are vast numbers of people who just like me after trying the mainstream treatments find themselves still suffering. In order to recover I had to educate myself and begin the journey to look for new approaches. I eventually found a solution in Restorative Exercise.  After working with patients of pelvic pain and its symptoms from all over the world I became convinced that there must be a quicker, more efficient way for relieving muscular tension. I continued to research and eventually found Dynamic Contraction Technique™. The results were faster and more sustained. I found the Holy Grail. I soon became a Certified Practitioner of DCT and partnered with Founder Nic Bartolotta to help the millions of Pelvic Dysfunction sufferers just like you.

My recovery has been an incredible journey and my self-confidence and enthusiasm for life has returned. The same can happen to you.

I look forward to reading or listening to your incredible journey and testimonial of how Nic and I’s online course has helped you.

Here's what others are saying :

''In reflection of the injury and recovery process of the HF/Pelvic Pain, I can highlight the training course of David as the main contributor to getting healthy. I have tried various routes to counter attack this injury, it was not an inflammation, it was not at all purely psychological, it was not the digestive system, simply there is a physiological missalignment of the pelvic floor and all associated muscles in that region. The most straight forward outset in tackling this injury is with physiological training to strengthen and stretch the associated muscles. The dedicated DCT training put together by David and Nic is pin pointed to achieve best results in this specific field. You may do yoga and meditation all day long or whirl around with a Therawand, it requires physiological training to get back an organic, healthy and functional pelvic section.

Having done cardiological training and Martial arts for 20 years, the conditioning of my body was set-out to harden the muscles. After some stressful events I got a cramp in my mid-section and my whole mid section was in a state of disorder. I could not do my sports, and even felt pain taking a leak. It took me some time to understand what situation I found myself in. I was coming across the DCT Training a few weeks after and decided to give it a try.

For me this included a training routine 2 times a day 6 days a week with DCT, Squat Routines and Hanging / Upper body strength trainings. I also changed my whole diet to have sufficient strength to follow the training. It required discipline like a buddhist ascetic, putting in a lot of effort and work. This took me some 6 weeks to get really good results and consider myself in a healthy state again.

I can confirm it works very good and is achieving great results, range of movement, organic alignment of the pelvic floor muscles, testosterone coming back like Husein Bolt on a 100 sprint. Sexually there is much more energy floating and you may have to do a hand-stand every morning going to the toilette.

David found that in my case there was an overall misalignment in my back and posture, he steered in additional excercises and guided which aspects I should focus on the most. With my posture and range of motion I am better than ever. The pelvic floor and correct body alignment is an important aspect to get right. It has opened new perspectives for me and I will continue with the training to eradicate wrong posture and allow my body to organically work as a system.''

''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.''

''Long time suffer here (7+ years - age 26 - probably had it longer but didn't realise - I had no pain). Just thought I'd comment on this thread. I don't want to get involved in any of the fights but all I can say is that I've been doing restorative exercise with David for the last month and a half and I've already seen dramatic improvements.

Obviously with all the quacks around and past experience I was slightly apprehensive but living in the UK I've met with him in person several times and I can tell you that this guy is not only genuine and easy to talk to but has been through this and understands what everyone is going through.

I've done it all - Bikram Yoga (religiously), Mindfulness, Herbal Supplements (including the Dr. Lin - stay well away from that guy if he's still going), Chiropractors, Trigger Points, Meditation, Drugs etc etc. I have made far and away the most progress with David. I've been getting morning wood for the first time in years, I had GOOD sex without any form of pharmaceutical assistance last weekend. My penis is noticeably warmer and more spongey, I am unquestionably on the road to recovery. So if anyone is reading this and has any doubts - please give it a go. And if you do try out R.E go for it with everything you've got, it might take you longer than me, it might even be shorter but if you give it your all and it doesn't work out then at least you tried your hardest and can box that one off.''
