Alternative Therapy for Adhesion and Endometriosis Pain Examined in New Book 'Miracle Moms, Better Sex, Less Pain'
Date:11/19/2008

In an upcoming book, 'Miracle Moms, Better Sex, Less Pain,' researchers examine a non-surgical therapy to treat adhesion and endometriosis pain.

Gainesville, FL (PRWEB) November 19, 2008 -- Endometriosis is a painful and debilitating condition for millions of women and girls, robbing them of their quality of life. While the cause of endometriosis is unknown, some pioneering studies about a non-surgical treatment are now bringing hope for some women.

In an upcoming book, Miracle Moms, Better Sex, Less Pain, gynecologist Richard King, MD and a physical therapy team examine a manual physical therapy (Wurn Technique®) that has decreased or eliminated pain associated with endometriosis for many women.

The Wurn Technique® was originally created to treat the adhesions co-author and physical therapist Belinda Wurn developed after pelvic surgery and radiation therapy following a diagnosis of cervical cancer. "I had double-over pain," she said. "I could not work or stand up straight. It hurt to sit and even to breathe; the pain was unrelenting."

After the Wurn Technique resolved Belinda's pain, she was able to return to work. She and her husband, massage therapist Larry Wurn began treating other conditions related to adhesions. They soon learned that adhesions and endometriosis pain were intimately related.

Adhesions associated with endometriosis can cause pain anywhere in the body (abdomen, pelvis, low back). Dysfunctions such as poor digestion, irritable bowel, and infertility may also result from the adhesions and endometriosis. "We believe that the pull of adhesions on pain-sensitive structures is what causes the severe, debilitating pain in many women with endometriosis," said Larry Wurn. "In fact, adhesions are frequently found in and near sites of endometrial implants."

Women with endometrial implants often report a great deal of pain, which may occur

  • before and during menstruation (dysmenorrhea),
  • with ovulation,
  • with sex (dyspareunia),
  • with urination, bowel movements, diarrhea, or constipation.

While physicians do not know the exact cause of endometriosis pain, they often recognize an intimate relationship between endometriosis and adhesions; when they find endometriosis, they often find adhesions nearby.

The Wurns have published several studies on the Wurn Technique in peer-reviewed medical journals. Studies in 'Medscape General Medicine' (2004) and 'Fertility and Sterility' (2006) showed that the therapy improved fertility and decreased or eliminated endometriosis and intercourse pain in most participants. In a study from 'Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine' (2008) the therapy opened blocked fallopian tubes in women who had been diagnosed infertile. Many had natural pregnancies after their tube(s) opened, and some have had second natural pregnancies - indicating that the results of therapy lasted for years in some women.

'Miracle Moms, Better Sex, Less Pain' will be published this winter. The table of contents is available at the Clear Passage Therapies blog to spur discussions with their readers on important topics. A free e-book excerpt from the book will be available in December at http://www.clearpassage.com.
