Congratulations to UF PT faculty, Mark Bishop, Joel Bialosky and Meryl Alappattu, for being published in the Women’s Health Journal of Physical Therapy.

The paper, “Riding a Tiger: Maximizing Effects of Manual Therapies for Pelvic Pain,” explains the mechanisms of manual therapy for pelvic pain. Pain relief after any intervention results from effects unrelated to the intervention, effects specific to the intervention, and effects of context in which the intervention is provided. Understanding these different mechanisms allows providers of manual therapy to maximize outcomes by deliberately harnessing each of these core elements of pain relief.
