Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy for Chronic Pelvic Pain
If you are experiencing CHRONIC PELVIC PAIN have you considered pelvic floor physiotherapy?
What changes can you expect to see with physiotherapy?
Most of our patients with chronic pelvic pain notice a significant improvement in pain and function. They may also notice improvements in other pelvic floor-related conditions they may be experiencing such as constipation, urinary urgency/frequency and dyspareunia.
What is involved in physiotherapy for chronic pelvic pain?
Treatment for chronic pelvic pain begins with a lot of education. We cover the neurophysiology of pain and the involvement of the pelvic floor. You will be taught to identify aggravating factors such as diet, activities, stress and anxiety, and how to modify or address them. This may include a referral onward or back to family doctor if appropriate. One frequent component of chronic pelvic pain is tension and tenderness of the pelvic floor muscles and surrounding tissues. Manual therapy will be used to address tension in the pelvic floor muscles and surrounding tissues. You will be screened and treated for other associated conditions such as constipation, urinary urgency/frequency and dyspareunia.
How long will it take to see improvement?
There is a fair bit of variability in how long resolution will take. Some people will achieve full resolution within a few visits, while others will take much longer. A typical patient will begin to notice small improvements within a few sessions, though full results will take longer.
