If I may ask, how long were you doing DCT before you gave up? I started it 3 weeks ago. Because of knee issues, I will work my way into it as some things have been a bit difficult to perform, but now that I have the knee pillow, it seems to have alleviated that problem for now. I will now focus on gradually working myself forward further. Demanding? Maybe so, but the pain and the urge I have had for 3.5 yrs have been physically demanding too, and I refuse to give it any more attention it never deserved. As far as their acknowledgement toward trigger points, it's just their opinion. If you feel comfortable doing both, just do it. I have gotten some results from trigger point therapy, and I can't deny it that. My issues with Trigger Point Therapy is that it always seems temporary in my case. I don't think there will ever be an easy road out of this. The road is going to always be difficult and demanding. In my case, I feel I need to just suck it up and deal with the demanding issues until I get better. I have seen some improvements with DCT, but nothing permanent yet as I am still working my way into it, and I need more time to see any long term or permanent results. Just my 2 cents.eltenso wrote: ↑Sun Apr 07, 2019 6:20 pm
The paradoxical relaxation does not work for me, or any other method of relaxation, for that matter. Actually, I believe that my inability to relax is a the bottom of this disorder... I purchased the DCT course for Pelvic Floor dysfunction, but I gave up pretty soon. It is a really demanding regimen of exercises, and the fact that they don't consider trigger points seems iffy to me.

It has come to my attention that people promoting DCT are part of a money making scheme. The promoters of DCT are paying patients to promote the technique. Treat any reports of "success" with DCT with scepticism and extreme caution.
