Ultrasound Studies in Chronic Urogenital Pain Conditions

In conjunction with Europe’s prominent Radiologist, Professor Paweł Wieczorek and his team, Marek Jantos, Dr Ewa Baszak-Ramonska and Sherie Johns have commenced trial studies on the impact of myofascial therapy on pelvic vascularity in chronic urogenital pain cases.
