“Evidence based programs deliver results. Rooted in science, driven by real-world success stories.”

At Transform Men's Pelvic Health, we believe that pelvic healthcare is both an art and science. We honor and uphold evidence-based practice, while also utilizing techniques that have proven to be effective based on feedback from our clients and actual lived experience. We offer a mix of time-honored holistic and alternative treatment modalities, as well as exercises and physical medicine methodology from Dr. Bri’s extensive training as a Doctor of Physical Therapy.

Below, you’ll see a selection of the quantitative studies and resources that have been used to direct the programming for Overcome Pelvic Pain for Men.

"Dr. Brianne Grogan and the team are so knowledgeable and teach so well that I rarely need to add to their programs. I can spend my time doing the things that I do best and my patients can use their time well in between sessions."

Maeve Whelan, Milltown Physiotherapy

OVERCOME PELVIC PAIN

The Overcome program was inspired by Michael’s personal experience with chronic pelvic pain syndrome and Dr. Bri’s personal, professional, clinical, and educational pelvic health expertise. Together, we created a program (with options for men and for women) that combines cutting edge science with what we know to be true from our own journeys and from working with clients from around the globe.

Through our extensive research and firsthand knowledge, we have learned that pain is treatable—even in chronic cases—when it’s properly addressed with an integrated, holistic approach. Disclaimer: Always be aware of other potential causes of pelvic pain, including (but not limited to) tumors, infections, and sexually transmitted infections. Increasing or unremitting pain must be evaluated by your physician. 

The following articles have guided the Overcome programs and our holistic, multifactorial approach to resolving pelvic pain. PMID numbers listed when available. Two of the following studies are based on low back pain diagnoses; we have taken the liberty to extrapolate and apply this information to pelvic pain, since there is still a paucity of research related to pelvic floor dysfunction.
