What is pelvic pain?

Pelvic pain is pain felt in the lower abdomen or perineum. It can be dull, crampy, or sharp pain. It can sometimes radiate to your lower back, buttocks or thighs. Pelvic pain can be caused by issues in the reproductive, urinary, gastrointestinal, or musculoskeletal systems.

A thorough medical examination is needed to determine the cause(s) of your pain. In many cases, there are ways that physical therapy can be helpful. Physical therapy can help when the following issues are present: pelvic muscle weakness or dysfunction, issues with the joints of the pelvis, post-surgical pain, urinary dysfunction or incontinence, history of multiple pelvic/abdominal surgeries, extensive scar tissue in abdomen or pelvis. Ask your doctor if physical therapy can help you.

What About Chronic Conditions?

 In the presence of chronic medical conditions such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, or chronic constipation, physical therapy can be effective to treat the muscular components of your pain in conjunction with other medical interventions recommended by your physician. Muscle tightness and/or weakness and dysfunction of the muscles that control urination or bowel movements can be issues with these chronic conditions that contribute to pelvic pain and can be improved with physical therapy treatment.

    The first day I saw Krista, I was in so much pain that I could hardly walk. My pelvic/hip pain started sometime after I had my baby. I had no idea what caused it or where it was coming from. Krista very quickly pinpointed the source of my pain and started the healing process. She was encouraging every step of the way and clear about the therapy process. She came up with a plan to address my specific problems and that led to great results! I have had physical therapy elsewhere following other injuries, and Krista has been the most thorough therapist that I have ever had. I would highly recommend her to others!

    I had incontinence for 15 years before seeing Krista. I was set on the idea of living with it until others including my doctor told me to try physical therapy. Krista taught me how to strengthen my pelvic floor muscles. She is a true professional that made the experience comfortable and ultimately successful! I would highly recommend her to others who have similar issues.

    I have chronic pelvic pain and GI issues. I had no idea how much my pelvic floor was contributing to these issues. I now have a much better understanding of how my body works and how to manage my pain. This experience has drastically improved my quality of life. I am so thankful that I found Krista . My advice to anyone struggling with pelvic floor issues is to stop thinking about it and “Just go see Krista.”
