Relieving Pelvic Pain: How Bodyworks Physical Therapy Can Help

Pelvic pain can be incredibly stressful, causing discomfort in the abdomen or pelvis without any apparent infection or identifiable cause. When this pain continues for more than six months, it is referred to as chronic pelvic pain (CPP). Symptoms of pelvic pain include difficulty with urination or bowel movements, painful intercourse, discomfort while sitting, and even challenges with wearing tight clothing. Surprisingly, statistics show that one in seven women in America between the ages of 18 and 50 experience pelvic pain. CPP can be debilitating, with approximately 25% of women affected spending two to three days per month in bed, often leading to negative cognitive, behavioral, sexual, and emotional consequences.

Fortunately, physical therapy can provide much-needed relief for these symptoms.
