Myofascial Release Physical Therapy - John Barnes Technique

Postby mesquite » Sat Jun 23, 2012 7:36 pm

Has anyone seen a P.T. who has been trained by John Barnes and experience relief from his/her P.T. sessions? I am going to have these P.T. sessions as I am out of options. Dr. Hibner and his P.T., Loretta Robertson both want me to have a "redo" surgery. Dr. Hibner is the only doctor in the U.S. who does "redos" as I just learned this week. I just underwent the new temporary Pudendal Pump installations but both failed after 6 and 4 hours, respectively. They are in clinical trials and have a long way to go to improve that process. Hibner is always inventing new procedures but I believe I have hit the wall at this point. The B & O suppositories really help with pain, though.

I haven't tried it myself but I knew a woman who did and found it very helpful. She doesn't post on the forum anymore though.
PNE since 2002. Started from weightlifting. PNE surgery from Dr. Bautrant, Oct 2004. Pain now is usually a 0 and I can sit for hours on certain chairs. No longer take medication for PNE. Can work full time and do "The Firm" exercise program. 99% cured from PGAD. PNE surgery was right for me but it might not be for you. Do your research.

I think I read in an earlier post that you have back issues too, so I hope that this PT can give you pain relief in which ever area(s) need targeting. I would definitely follow this route rather than go into a re-do at least initially, hope it helps you, let us know.
Take care,
Helen

Hi,
I have had Myofascial Release PT and it really works. That saying, I do have to go in for a few tune-ups every year or so.
Had PN since childbirth 1968
Had MRI,MRN,EMG,trigger point injections,3 steriod nerve blocks, pelvic plexus CT
Seeing Dr. Hibner Sept.29,2010
MEDS: Cymbalta 120mg, Elavil 25mg, Valium Suppositories, Fentanyl patch
Surgery w/ Dr. Hibner 3/14/11
Pain did not go away until I was given a steriod block to broken coccyx

Just an fyi to the readers, I had it done extensively last year and it helped somewhat. But, my PTs found my case to be frustrating as I didn't respond as well as their other patients did. It would have been better to have had the PT before having had the major surgery as opposed to after it. I spent many thousands on it and probably should have quit last fall. But, there are few PTs at all in Arizona who understand PN...

Oh dear, how true, this is my message to my members too. Conservative, non-invasive treatments are much more likely than not to help you recover. Even though you may have tried many non-surgical treatments without success so far, there are still more to try.

I agree conservative treatments should be tried first, but whether or not they help an individual recover seems to be dependent on the mechanism and source of that person's pain. It appears that you are visiting our forum with the purpose of to sharing your personal experiences with pudendal nerve pain and conservative therapies, including PT, am I correct?

PN started 2004 from fall. Surgery with Filler Nov. 2006, Dr. Campbell April 2007. Pain decreased by 85% in 2008 (rectal and sitting pain resolved completely), pain returned in 12/13.

You are correct, but not so much "pudendal nerve pain" as pelvic pain, which may originate from multiple sources, including the CNS via allodynia and hyperalgesia.
