SPEARHEADING A REVOLUTIONARY NEW TREATMENT APPROACH FOR THE CHRONIC PELVIC PAIN PATIENT
The Browning Pelvic Pain and Organic Dysfunction Treatment Center in Northport, Michigan, is the world’s first and only in-patient residential care center specializing in a revolutionary new non-surgical treatment for the Pelvic Pain and Organic Dysfunction (PPOD) syndrome patient.
COMMON SYMPTOMS OF THE PPOD SYNDROME
- Chronic pelvic pain
- Pelvic pain with intercourse (dyspareunia)
- Labia or clitoris pain (vulvodynia)
- Bladder pain (cystalgia or cystitis)
- Rectal pain (proctalgia)
- Prostate pain (prostatodynia or prostatitis)
- Testicle and penis pain (orchialgia and phallodynia)
- Loss of bladder or bowel control (urinary or fecal incontinence)
- Difficulty or inability in emptying the bladder (urinary retention)
- Chronic constipation or diarrhea
- Inability to achieve orgasm (anorgasmy)
- Erectile dysfunction (impotence)
These disorders represent some of the commonly encountered clinical manifestations of the mechanically induced Pelvic Pain and Organic Dysfunction syndrome. Caused by an “atypical”, “occult” or “asymptomatic” mechanical disorder of the spine, the PPOD syndrome manifests itself not as a typical spinal disorder with the usual symptoms of back and leg pain, but rather in a wide range of seemingly unrelated complaints of chronic pelvic pain and various disturbances of bladder, bowel, gynecologic and sexual function (see case reports for a more detailed description and response to treatment).
A COMMONLY MISDIAGNOSED DISORDER
Given the nature of the symptoms that develop and their propensity for mimicking other pelvic problems, the PPOD syndrome is routinely misdiagnosed as some type of internal pelvic disorder. As a result, those afflicted are routinely subjected to repeated diagnostic evaluations, multiple surgeries and a host of other therapeutic procedures by one specialist after another, only to find that despite having undergone extensive evaluation and treatment there is little or no improvement in their condition. Because of its capacity to mimic other disorders and the obscure nature of the underlying condition, the PPOD syndrome commonly eludes identification by doctor after doctor, year after year, all the while concealing the fact that the underlying problem is one of spinal origin.
NEW, INNOVATIVE AND EFFECTIVE TREATMENT IS NOW AVAILABLE
Having devoted nearly 30 years to the study of the mechanically induced PPOD syndrome patient,
Dr. James Browning has developed and refined innovative diagnostic and therapeutic protocols that have proven to be extremely effective at identifying and successfully treating the PPOD syndrome patient. Many individuals, who had all but given up after exhausting what they were led to believe were all therapeutic options, have regained control of their lives by fully recovering from the devastating effects of the PPOD syndrome with Dr. Browning’s help.
