Pelvic pain

Pelvic pain is pain experienced within the area between the belly button and upper thighs. This could be pain perceived in:

  • Lower back, sacral joint , coccyx (tailbone)
  • Rectal, testes, perineum or penis
  • Bladder or urethra
  • Bowel (like with irritable bowel syndrome or constipation)

Those experiencing chronic pelvic pain are more likely to have multiple symptoms. We know that 80% of women with pelvic pain will have pelvic floor muscle tension contributing to their symptoms.
Pelvic pain is best managed with a multidisciplinary approach, looking at the whole person and working collaboratively with other health care professionals. At BodySense Physiotherapy we are here to listen and help you make sense of your pelvic pain.

We can offer various management strategies to assist you such as:

  • Soft tissue mobilisation
  • Relaxation and breathing strategies
  • Improve pelvic floor muscle function
  • Prescribe paced exercise program
  • Electrical stimulation (like TENS)
  • Dry needling
  • Address any additional complaints that can commonly occur with pelvic pain like painful intercourse, constipation and bladder urgency

The safety of our patients, staff and community is our priority.
