About Pelvic Pain

Pain and dysfunction of pelvic region are painful and uncomfortable for many people. Due to this reason, mild symptoms and discomfort of pelvic region causes unbearable pain with unmanageable and embarrassing symptoms before acquiring help.

Pelvic region has a complex anatomy and many things can be cause of pain and dysfunction of pelvic region. The problem can only be resolved after identification of the exact cause of pain. Steroid injections, drugs and manual therapy can reduce symptoms and pain, but the condition is not resolved, and the patient undergoes vicious cycle therapy and pain.

How Treatment At IPRC Is Different From Conventional Physical Therapy

Many traditional one-size-fit-all approaches fails to get rid of the exact cause of pelvic pain and dysfunction. These approaches work on reduction of symptoms without treating the root source of your pelvic pain. 

Our experts at IPRC believes that pain in pelvic region is mostly caused by trigger points that are present along the pudendal nerve or deep in pelvis. Basically, these trigger points are reaction of instability of spine and locomotor system, deficits in the generation of intra-abdominal pressure and hip dysfunction.

This is mostly due to:

  • Disruption of different forces in intra-pelvic and intra-abdominal cavities.
  • Motor system inability to coordinate spinal and postural stabilization with excretory, sexual, and breathing function.
  • Dysfunction of hip muscles due to prolonged sitting and gait abnormalities.
  • Sedentary lifestyle and poor posture.
  • Poor coping strategies and stress

The connective tissue and muscles of pelvic floor makes a hammock that runs from your tailbone to the pubic bone, forming separation between pelvic bowl and perineal region. Your pelvic floor provides support for bladder, intestine and uterus and its muscles control bowel, bladder, and sexual control.
The first sign of pelvic floor dysfunction is bowel and bladder leakage, constipation and urinary hesitancy.
High-impact activities and sports like gymnastic and running usually create downward pressure on muscles of pelvic floor, putting athletes at high risk for developing pelvic floor dysfunction. Pregnancy and childbirth increase risk for pelvic dysfunction and pain.
Pelvic pain that persists for a period of six months or longer is referred to as chronic pelvic pain (CPP) that can badly interfere with your everyday activities. Chronic pelvic pain is more common among women and accounts for 10% gynecologist visits.
We understand that pelvic floor muscles are not the exact cause of pain. Pelvic pain usually originates from gait abnormalities and imbalances in low back and hip, that interferes with the ability of your body to balance intra-abdominal and intra-pelvic pressure. Proper physical therapy and rehabilitation provides the exact solution of your pelvic pain and dysfunction.
