Dynamic Contraction Technique offers a new approach to treating the muscle tension associated with male pelvic floor pain and dysfunction. This is a comprehensive 6 week course with workouts to follow and an extensive explanation of how DCT treats muscle tension.

We filmed this interview in August last year. We have included this original interview as it offers a wealth of information about Dynamic Contraction Technique and how it can help male pelvic pain. It also allows you to see the incredible perspective we have gained over the past 8 months since we began this dialogue.

The first part of the interview focuses on David’s 14-year experience of chronic pelvic pain and eventual recovery. He discusses the many different treatments he tried during that time and goes on to explain how he discovered Dynamic Contraction Technique. The latter part of the interview explains in detail how DCT works and how it can treat pelvic floor dysfunction.

We believe the more you can understand the more motivated you will be to perform the program on a consistent basis.

Brief Recap of David’s Symptoms & Recovery Process

Length: 5 minutesComplexity: Standard

It is important to remember that David is leading by example and shares some of the more poignant aspects of both his symptoms and his recovery from Male Pelvic Floor Dysfunction. This is a short interview that serves as a helpful starting point for the more involved discussion that follows in the next few lessons.

Comprehensive Overview of the Recovery Process

Length: 10 minutesComplexity: Standard

As David explains in this interview the psychological effects of pelvic pain are profound. Sufferers can often experience severe depression and anxiety as a result of their pain and symptoms. We recognise that sufferers must not only go through a physical recovery but also a psychological one. David speaks about his psychological recovery and how he had to go through a process of rediscovering himself after years of pelvic pain.

New Perspectives and the Root Cause of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Length: 60 minutesComplexity: Standard

This interview discusses what we have found since using DCT with pelvic pain patients.
The most relevant discovery is that we have seen the biggest improvement in symptoms by releasing the larger muscles which attach to the pelvis. These muscles are called prime movers such as the hip flexors, the glutes and the lateral rotator muscles. These muscles can rotate the pelvis either anteriorly or posteriorly. The tension in the pelvic floor musculature is a reaction to the postural problem and attempting to only fix the tension in the pelvic floor will not be productive. By applying the principles of DCT to the prime mover muscles David and Nic have found that they can bring about significant improvement in both pain and symptoms.

DCT Fascial Tension Release Routine

Length: 34 minutesComplexity: Standard

You will perform this stretch 5 days a week. We recommend you perform the routine soon after waking up to release tension for the rest of the day. As Nic explains in the video you do not always have to perform this routine with full intensity.

DCT Muscle Tension Release Routine

Length: 33 minutesComplexity: Standard

In this Routine Nic Bartolotta demonstrates the principles of DCT in action in a 33 min follow the leader style workout for the prime movers of the hips.

DCT Assisted Stretching Program

Length: 12 minutesComplexity: Standard

Assisted exercises can produce quick results as they allow you to place the muscle under a greater eccentric load. We have chosen what we feel are the two most important DCT assisted exercises for pelvic pain. You will require a partner for these exercises. The first exercise focuses on the hip flexor and the second focuses on the glutes.

Principals and Tips for Mitigating Tension

Length: 5 minutesComplexity: Standard

If you are to overcome pelvic floor pain you need to be thinking about what is bringing tension into the body. Prolonged sitting, sedentary activities or even repetitive movement activities which may be part of your work are going to be contributing to tension in your body. This video offers exercises you can perform at work or at home in order to mitigate tension before it becomes problematic. This video focuses on the hamstrings, hip flexors and quads. You can perform these as frequently as you want when you feel tension starting to accumulate.

Abdominal Strengthening for Psoas Release

Length: 8 minutesComplexity: Standard

This workout will activate the transverse abdominus, the rectus abdominus and the obliques. This workout will activate the abs without overly contracting the psoas muscles. Developing abdominal control is crucial to releasing the psoas muscle, one of the primary muscles involved in pelvic pain.

Monkey Bar Workout

Length: 7 minutesComplexity: Standard

As David discusses in the original interview the monkey bars helped him and many of his clients. Developing strength on the monkey bars will reduce tension in both the abdomen, back and hips. Draw the belly button in towards the spine while working out on the monkey bars.
The monkey bars can be challenging and it make take you some time to swing across them. Build up strength hanging from a bar at first. This video offers a selection of exercises you can start practising on the bars.
