  3. Hi, I would Like to know if you’ve ever treated anyone who has Pundendal Neuralgia from sitting on a long car ride for many hours. I have a compression of the rectal branch in the Pundendal nerve, which causes the spinchter to lock up and stop me from eliminating. Have you ever dealt with that particular issue before, and And been able to resolve the lock up from nerve compression? I’ve done pelvic therapy and it causes more pain.
    Thank you, Donna
