Chronic Pelvic Pain, Abdominal pain, or Painful intercourse (Dyspareunia)

Pelvic pain is often characterized by abnormally high tension in the muscles of the pelvic floor. This is a form of pelvic floor dysfunction and can contribute to urinary urgency and frequency, painful intercourse, chronic pelvic pain, vaginal or rectal pain, and constipation. Physical therapy to address the cause of this tension and restore normal tone can be very effective in alleviating these conditions. Treatment may include muscle relaxation training through biofeedback, electrical stimulation, myofascial release, internal soft tissue mobilization of involved muscles, and education in proper posture and body mechanics. The physical therapist will also evaluate your spine, pelvis and hips for any underlying dysfunctions, as problems in these areas can affect the tension of the pelvic floor muscles.
