Preventing Patient Flares

We've talked about managing flares, but can we prevent them in the first place?

5 Reminders When Treating Chronic Pain

Pelvic PT Rising: The pelvic health tools to make you a better clinician and/or a more successful business owner. We want every single pelvic health practitioner to be more confident and successful in your practice and career!

  • Clinical Courses: Game-changing online courses to make you more confident, challenge your thinking and improve patient outcomes

  • Business Resources: Helping 500+ pelvic health practitioners confidently start, grow and build their dream business!


In this 'sode we dive into what actually causes a flare, how to prevent them from happening and make sure your patient is prepared if symptoms do increase.

We also discuss the complicated balancing act between treating so timidly you aren't making a change vs. repeatedly flaring your patients.

In order to prevent flares you'll need to address two things: the irritability of the tissue and the irritability of the patient's nervous system. Effective communication is one of your most important tools in preventing - or managing - symptom flares and building trust with your patient.

Let's work upstream to prevent as many of these flares as possible, equip our patients so they don't come as a surprise and manage flares when they do arise!

As Nicole said on the full 'sode of the topic...

"You want to make sure your patient is prepared if symptoms do increase." - Nicole Cozean
