male pelvic pain
Below is a post made by a client who is based in New Zealand. Andrew recovered by learning Dynamic Contraction Technique 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.'' Andrew, New Zealand

Hey everyone, this is an update on my progress with David McCoid's https://freedomfrompelvicpain.com/. I'm now three months into the program, and I can say definitively that this has had a tremendous impact on my recovery. As you all know, this condition is a tricky one and there's a broad range of symptoms. I've suffered from perineum pain for 21 months now which may have arisen due to a lifetime of extreme exercise with a distain for flexibility. Like many of you, I experienced a worsening of symptoms in the first months -- to the point that it became a daily phenomenon in my life that really snowballed with my growing sense of powerlessness and anxiety. I began 14 months ago with pelvic stretching which initially made an impact to the severity of my pain. I would have good days and bad days. I combined this with focusing on my diet and my gut health (drinking the probiotic kefir drink and eating a lot of veggies, although in every case with the aim to never be too full or tax my digestive system).
However, those generic pelvic stretches -- passive stretching -- were only so useful. Once I began on McCoid's program, my symptoms have become very manageable and they are slowly declining in severity and becoming more fugitive and fleeting. At the end of the day, I still get some sensitivity, but a walk or a bath can dispel it. This program takes dedication longterm, but I really don't know where I'd be without it. For those who decide to try it, you should get the DCT knee pillow they recommend. That's the key to engaging fully in the stretching and strengthening routines they outline. I'm also walking and hiking a lot, which I think is also key to management and/or recovery. Thanks to everyone on this forum. Being part of this community of men has been a great source of information and comfort. Wishing you all the best!

Thank you for sharing this J~~~. I also suffer from Pelvic Pain for over 13 years. It was so bad at one point I considered ending my life. I have tried all modalities and forms of help, some with temporary relief, but it always came back with time.In January 2018 by some small act of God I found this forum. And I found David’s DCT program. I am now pain free, and my body works fully including full sexual health with my girlfriend very satisfied (thank God again) - which was always the hardest part for me aside from the actual pain. After i bought the program I found total relief within 5 weeks. I stopped the regiment and symptoms began to return in May. So I returned to the program and added even more focus on abdominal strengthening and lengthening at David’s encouragement. Within 3 weeks this time, the pain was completely gone again, and I was operating at full health again, pain free, including my erections being solid again. Like I said, 13 years I’ve dealt with this horrible condition, and this program helped me and I am so fucking grateful, I would have paid 4x the price if i knew it would lead to a normal life again.
Below is a testimonial of a client who recoverd with the Online DCT 6 week course.
'' 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.''
Below is a post made on a facebook pelvic pain forum. Paul was in intense pain when he first began working with me.
''So the RE (Nutritious Movement) that I have been doing with David McCoid over the last 8 months has been a tremendous amount of work! At this time last year I was on nearly 3000mg of gabapentin. I was also going through a serios of injections and pulse does radio frequency... None of which helped. I am very happy to report that my progress has been beyond what I though possible. I am no longer on ANY gabapentin and pain levels are somewhere between 0-3. They only seem to be gettng better. I struggled with the pain for over 3 years. Thank you David - Paul Wonsavage''
