What's Causing Your Pelvic Pain?

Is your pelvic pain making it hard to get through the day? Many women experience pelvic health issues connected to their pelvic floor, which connects to the spine and can be the source of a number of different kinds of debilitating pain.

At One Accord Physical Therapy in Casa Grande, Phoenix, Mesa, and Gilbert, Arizona, our team of professional physical therapists can help diagnose and treat the source of your pelvic pain.

What causes pelvic pain?

While some cases of pelvic pain can be caused by your digestive, reproductive, or urinary systems, in many cases chronic pelvic pain originates from the muscles and connective tissue (ligaments) in your pelvic floor structure. Common causes of pelvic pain that should be investigated include:

 

How can pelvic pain be treated?

Pelvic pain caused by infection can be treated with antibiotics, and pain itself can be treated with anti-inflammatories and pain relievers. However, if you have pelvic floor dysfunction caused by muscle and ligament problems, or issues with the connection between the pelvis and the spine, you can most likely benefit from physical therapy.

Our team will study your medical history and symptoms and create a unique plan designed to help you live a pain-free life. Your plan can include exercises, functional training, soft tissue and joint mobilization, gentle spinal manipulation, and even dry needling of the soft tissues in your pelvis.

If you need help with pelvic pain or other pelvic floor issues, contact one of our Arizona locations in Mesa, Gilbert, Phoenix, or Casa Grande to book an appointment today.
