The Twisted Trunk: Implications for Abdominal and Pelvic Pain The Twisted Trunk: Implications for Abdominal and Pelvic Pain
March 26, 2018
While attending the 3rd World Congress of Abdominal and Pelvic Pain Conference last October in Washington, DC, I had the pleasure of listening to the lecture of Dr. Diane Lee, BSR, FCAMPT, CGIMS. Dr. Lee discussed the impact that altered pelvic biomechanics and non-optimal function in the abdominal wall and pelvic floor have on pelvic pain. Dr. Lee is a practicing Physiotherapist and Women’s Health clinical specialist in Canada. As an author, instructor, fellow and the owner and director of her own therapy clinic, Dr. Lee has made a significant contribution to this field. Her lecture, The Twisted Trunk: Implications for Abdominal and Pelvic Impairment and Pain is summarized below.
