Pelvic pain is a condition characterized by persistent pain in the pelvic region. It can be caused by various underlying conditions such as endometriosis, pelvic floor dysfunction, bladder pain, or musculoskeletal issues.
Women’s health physiotherapy can play a crucial role in the management and treatment of the condition. Here are some ways in which we can help:
- Assessment and diagnosis: A women’s health physiotherapist will conduct a comprehensive assessment to determine the possible causes of pelvic pain.
- Pelvic floor muscle rehabilitation: Treatment can involve specific exercises and techniques to strengthen, relax, or coordinate the pelvic floor muscles, depending on the individual’s needs.
- Manual therapy: Women’s health physiotherapists may use manual therapy techniques such as myofascial release, trigger point release, or joint mobilization to address muscular or joint dysfunctions that may contribute to pelvic pain.
- Education and lifestyle modifications: Physiotherapists can provide education on factors that may aggravate or alleviate pelvic pain, such as posture, body mechanics, and lifestyle modifications.
- Bladder and bowel management: In some cases, chronic pelvic pain may be associated with bladder or bowel dysfunction. Women’s health physiotherapists can provide guidance on bladder and bowel management strategies, such as timed voiding, dietary modifications, and pelvic floor exercises to improve control and reduce pain.
- Collaborative approach: We often work collaboratively with other healthcare professionals involved in your management such as gynaecologists,
