osteitis pubis

A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with this and I am wondering what sort of treatments are available and what exercises are still safe to perform. Thankfully, she caught it early and is only experiencing moderate discomfort.

Can this be treated like other "itis's," with trigger points and stretching?

Re: osteitis pubis


This is a BRUTAL type of joint inflammation that is resistant to most normal treatments. My wife has suffered with this for 8 years or so. There is no standard treatment; every patient responds to treatments differently. The surgical intervention is rather barbaric and only has a 60-75% success rate. There are less that 3 dozen surgeons in the country who do it (one of whom is a med school classmate who dearly loves my wife and was the one to share this info). There is no "go/no-go" recommendation for exercise. She should do what doesn't hurt and actively avoid what does.

Sorry to be such a buzz-kill. Feel free to PM me, or PM and then we can exchange phone numbers.
