Relief of chronic pelvic pain and urgency by a speculum test is a standard part of the Integral Theory protocol for validating the pictorial algorithmís predictions for ligament causation. Supporting the posterior vaginal fornix with a ping-pong ball relieved a 51-year-old womanís deep pelvic pain and also improved her symptoms of frequent urination and night urination. A posterior fornix ping-pong ball would more directly support the uterosacral ligaments to relieve the tension on the visceral plexuses. As such it would appear to be a more direct test than the speculum test.
