Women of all ages may experience pelvic pain. It is a prevalent but often unidentified problem. Pelvic pain can result from a number of infections, conditions, and diseases. It may be associated with the digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems or the neuro-muscular and connective tissue structures of the pelvic floor. Pelvic pain manifests anywhere from the belly button to the genital region and often coincides with lower abdominal and lower back pain, as well as pain with intercourse.
Pelvic pain conditions are occasionally undiagnosed due to their complex nature. Thus, it is often up to the patient to search and locate the specialist who will correctly identify the roots of their pelvic pain.
Specialized physical therapy is one of the successful methods of treating pelvic pain. Depending on the contributing factors and the severity, physical therapy may decrease the intensity of pelvic pain or even completely eliminate it. At Pelvica, we take a holistic approach towards patients with pelvic pain and create individualized treatment plans for each. We apply a combination of manual therapy techniques as well as specialized stretching and exercise programs. We believe that it often requires a team of health care professionals to work together for good results and we are happy to be a part of that team.
