Physiotherapy Advice

Do you Suffer From Pelvic Pain?

When asked to present the “Pelvic Pain” topic to our community of readers, my first thought was, “But where to begin?” The term Pelvic Pain refers to a variety of medical conditions, including those of musculoskeletal, reproductive, urinary, and digestive origins. It is therefore advised for you to begin the path to healing by visiting your doctor to determine if Pelvic Health Physiotherapy would be an appropriate choice for you.
There are a number of pelvic pain diagnoses that can be effectively treated by a trained Pelvic Health Physiotherapist. These include vaginissimus, dysparenia, vulvodynia, interstitial cystitis, pudendal neuralgia, birthing injuries and others. Additionally, Pelvic Health Physiotherapy can be effective for some conditions where a concrete diagnosis is allusive. These include some situations where there is a chronic (greater than 3-6 months) history of pelvic pain or painful sex. Physiotherapy treatment programs vary according to individual presentation. Treatment approaches including education, exercise, modalities such as biofeedback, and manual techniques have proven to be the most effective.
People with pelvic pain often suffer in silence. The primary reasons for this include embarrassment and fear. Unfortunately, untreated pelvic pain negatively impacts emotional states, causes grief in our relationships, and reduces activity levels. To avoid symptom progression and unnecessary suffering, I recommend that people suffering from any type of pelvic pain seek help as soon as possible. The Keystone Physiotherapy Team includes an experienced Pelvic Health Physiotherapist who has the necessary expertise to help treat your pelvic pain and end your suffering. Call us today!
