What Is Pelvic Pain?

Pelvic pain is a complex multifaceted condition, mainly because in the area of the pelvis where there really is quite a bit going on. Issues in the bladder can actually cause issues in the pelvic floor.

Pelvic pain can be felt in the lower abdomen, in the lumbar, in the sacral region, the bum, and then, the entire pelvic region where it can be felt in something called the perineal area. It can go down the leg and it can radiate up towards the thoracic spine.

For men, it can be felt in their penis and in their testicles. For women, it can be felt in her vagina, quite often it can be felt in the bladder,
and the urethra, and/or the rectum.

Patients with chronic pelvic pain have sensitisation of their nervous system. Their nerves are hyperactive, and essentially firing too much.

Some treatments used to reduce pelvic pain include pelvic floor physical therapy, in addition, diaphragmatic breathing, meditation, craniosacral work, acupuncture, medical massages or connective tissue work, and some yoga.
