Amy Stein on Pelvic Pain

“I talk about the pelvic floor all the time. As one of the pioneer physical therapists specializing in pelvic floor dysfunction, I have been treating patients afflicted with these disorders for over twenty years. I have seen how the exercises and therapies I prescribe — breathing, relaxing, strengthening, stretching, toning, diet — don’t just heal the disorders but can prevent them from occurring in the first place. At the same time, these exercises and therapies can ward off the effects of aging while enhancing patients' lives immeasurably.


Amy Stein on Pelvic Pain

“One of the ongoing missions of my practice is to address physicians in these and other specialties about the disorders they might be seeing and that can be treated — and have been successfully treated — by physical therapy.

Amy Stein on Pelvic Pain

“Healthcare practitioners – and patients, too – are becoming much more receptive to this message. Better-informed healthcare consumers are less and less willing to pop pills that may produce side-effects worse than the cure or to undergo costly and irrevocable surgeries. They are increasingly interested in healing themselves through exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle behavior, and they are ready to do the work such healing may require.

Amy Stein on Pelvic Pain

"But there are still far too many people who find it difficult to even have a conversation with their doctors about the pain they have “there,” or about their trouble with urination or defecation, or — most intimate of all — about a problem with sex. Even worse, their doctors may not ask.

Amy Stein on Pelvic Pain

"Our work at Beyond Basics, our outreach to physicians, clinicians, and patients, and the books and video we have produced are all designed to educate and to relieve physical and emotional pain and discomfort. Nothing is more gratifying to me than to be able to help people who have been suffering for years to find hope and healing.”

About Beating Endo

Buy now

From Dr. Iris Orbuch and Dr. Amy Stein, two of the world’s leading experts in endometriosis, comes an essential, first-of-its kind book that unwraps the mystery of the disease and gives women the tools they need to reclaim their lives from it.

Approximately one out of every 10 women has endometriosis, an inflammatory disease that causes chronic pain, limits life’s activities, and may lead to infertility. Despite the disease’s prevalence, the average woman may suffer for a decade or more before receiving an accurate diagnosis. Once she does, she’s often given little more than a prescription for pain killers and a referral for the wrong kind of surgery.

Beating Endo arms women with what has long been missing—even within the medical community—namely, cutting-edge knowledge of how the disease works and what the endo sufferer can do to take charge of her fight against it.

Leading gynecologist and endometriosis specialist Dr. Iris Orbuch and world-renowned pelvic pain specialist and physical therapist Dr. Amy Stein have long partnered with each other and with other healthcare practitioners to address the disease’s host of co-existing conditions—which can include pelvic floor muscle dysfunction, gastrointestinal ailments, painful bladder syndrome, central nervous system sensitization—through a whole-mind/whole-body approach.

Beating Endo formalizes the multimodal program they developed, offering readers an anti-inflammatory lifestyle protocol that incorporates physical therapy, nutrition, mindfulness, and environment to systematically addresses each of the disease’s co-conditions on an ongoing basis up to and following excision surgery. The program has achieved successful outcomes for their patients – it works to restore health, vitality, and quality of life to women with endo by putting the tools of renewed health in the hands of those whose health is at risk.
