My list of practitioners

Author:

The most supported I’ve felt is when I’ve come across a practitioner who listens and wants to work with me specifically. I mean really take note of what’s going on and want to learn themselves too. Chronic pain is still so difficult to understand, and of course I can’t recommend or even suggest that my experience might be a solution for someone else but I can provide the contact details for ‘team Soula’.

    Nice to see you giving positive feedback where it’s due! I have personally been treated by Prof Peter Teddy and by Dr Peter Courtney and think the world of BOTH. It is nice to see that there are still some very good doctors/specialists who really care and take a “person-approach” rather than an organ or a limb -approach!
    How about the bad guys? We set up a page under our resources where nasty hired guns can be reported anonymously! (IME docs to avoid) 😉

      Not allowed to name the nasties. They are protected, they can sue for defamation if we tarnish their trusted names (please!)… I love this system, so backwards. Honestly, if the shonky IME examiners didn’t exist, the system would have more chance of functioning and other insurance companies wouldn’t get away with so much either. But, they must be suitable somehow… hmmm???

What is Pudendal Neuralgia (PN)?

Most simply put PN is Carpal Tunnel in the pelvis/buttocks. Compression of the Pudendal Nerve occurs after trauma to the pelvis and is aggrevated with pressure. The pain is often described as a toothache like pain, with spasms, sensations of tingling, numbness, or burning. It can be very debilitating.
