Osteitis Pubis: 17 Week Later…

I have been working with my new physiotherapist Meaghan for the last 3 weeks. The first week I was working on TA activation, PF activation and diaphragm activation. Next 2 weeks I was doing this:

  • TA and diaphragm activation together
  • PF and diaphragm activation together
  • Multifidus, activation

I saw her again 2 days ago. My assignment for this week is the activation of all 4 groups together: TA, PF, MF and diaphragm. It is a bit tricky, but if I am focused enough I can do it. I do 10 repetitions, 3 times a day.

I gave up doing any other core workout for now. I am strictly following Meaghan’s instructions.

Pain wise, I am making progress. No more pain on top of the pubic bone. The main issue now is burning pain in lower abdominal, 2” above the pubic bone.

Pain when get up after longer sitting is almost non-existent. I still feel some pain (much less than before though) when I want to do a sit-up or to lift both legs together.

I will see Meaghan again on Tuesday and Kevin, the chiropractor on Thursday next week.
