I’m a 38-year old male that was experiencing recurring prostatitis over past 7-8 years. When I would get a flare up it was uncomfortable to sit for an extended time and I would have overall discomfort in the lower pelvis. When a flare-up would occur I’d contact my urologist and each time I’d get a round of antibiotics that would ultimately solve the issue. After several visits to the urologist and annual follow-ups, the urologist referred me to Restore Your Core. The urologist thought perhaps some of my habits were contributing to flare-ups.
I was apprehensive about treatment as many men are. I work out 3-5 times per week and consider myself pretty fit and active so I felt I had a pretty good handle on my body. After my first appointment it became clear I carry all of my stress and anxiety in my core. The combination of carrying stress in my core, my job requiring sitting for extended periods, and a lengthy commute to/from work were all factors in contributing to my recurrence.
My goal from day one was to build a toolbox of things I could do or be conscious of to minimize the chances of a flareup. Amy Robbinson at Restore Your Core does an excellent job of asking lots of questions to understand what could be causing the issue. She is passionate about core therapy and helping her patients achieve their goals. After several visits to Restore Your Core I’ve become more knowledgeable about my body and what was causing the flare-ups for me. I’ve amassed techniques to minimize the occurrence of flare-ups and I’m overall more aware of my triggers and how to minimize them. Amy’s passion for her work is clear and this translates to her being a great therapist and teacher who cares greatly about her clients and helping them achieve their goals. I’m happy to say I’ve gone over a year now with no flare up thanks to what I learned from Amy at Restore Your Core.
