Clinical Trigger Point Therapy Protocol for Pelvic & Abdominal Pain
About the Author:
Dr. Laura Perry is a chiropractor and cofounder of The Institute of Trigger Point Therapy in Houston, Texas. Over the last decade, Dr. Perry has developed and refined a remarkably effective manual therapy system based on the myofascial pain research of Dr. Janet Travell MD and Dr. David G. Simons MD. In late 2004, Dr. Perry began teaching her 60-hour Clinical Trigger Point Therapy Program to massage therapists, chiropractors, bodyworkers, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and layman practitioners. The 60-hour program was so well received, that in 2008 she began work on making the techniques, procedures, and clinical protocols available to everyone via instructional DVDs.

Description: We originally developed this protocol to see if we could help a friend who had been recently diagnosed with endometriosis and was experiencing severe bouts of pelvic pain. To our amazement, the protocol worked wonderfully to relieve her pain and mitigate the associated symptoms. Over the years, we expanded the protocol to address abdominal pain, vaginal & testicular pain, and gastrointestinal complaints with good success.
