Erin Jackson standing, leaning against a wall.

Erin Jackson's pelvic pain, a mysterious, stabbing pain, felt both internal and external, plagued her for over a decade.

She endured it through college and law school, but it was always there, preventing her from having an active life. She saw multiple health care providers in multiple states. She was prescribed multiple medications, none of which worked. And it made her pain worse.

After moving to other states to seek better health care treatment, Erin began working with a physical therapist who presented a new treatment approach for her pain—and things finally began to change. 

In this episode of Move Forward Radio, she shares her journey with chronic pelvic pain, and how "physical therapy saved her life."
