What is pelvic pain?
The term ‘pelvic pain’ covers pain in and around the pelvic floor both in the front and at the back. It can also include the pubic area in the front of the pelvis, the lower abdomen above the pubis, the groin and the sacroiliac area.
It’s a misapprehension to think that pelvic pain is suffered solely by the female population. It isn’t. It affects both men and women and left untreated can have a very negative impact on many aspects of your life.
How we treat Pelvic Pain
At ESPH we believe that many cases of pelvic pain can be treated successfully with the readjustment of the pelvic bones and lumbar spine using gentle but effective manual techniques. The muscles then need to be re-educated to produce enough tone to keep the pelvis aligned and stable in posture.
At ESPH we will create your individual pelvic pain management plan. This will typically consist of manual therapy to reduce your pain and exercise such as Pilates to re-educate your muscles. A course of treatment will last around six weeks although more complex cases may require additional input from a Pain Management Consultant and a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist.
