Pelvic Pain Treatment
Do you have:
Sharp stabbing pain inside the vagina
Pain during intercourse (entry and/or deep penetration)
Difficulty inserting a tampon or menstrual cup
Intense pain before or during your period

The above symptoms may be related to your pelvic floor muscles, and therefore could be helped with women’s health physiotherapy.
The causes and risk factors for Pelvic Pain include:
Endometriosis / Adenomyosis
Dysmenorrhea (Heavy and painful periods)
Menopause / loss of oestrogen causing vaginal dryness
Bladder pain syndrome / Interstitial Cystitis
Recurrent UTIs or fungal infections
Vestibulitis / Vestibulodynia
Irritable bowel syndrome
History of physical or psychological trauma and/or abuse
Mental illness such as depression and anxiety
Traumatic childbirth, perineal / internal tears during childbirth
Treatment for Pelvic Pain is complex and multifactorial, but IT IS possible to change the symptoms.
Your physiotherapist will discuss the treatment options available to manage your symptoms, and also try to address the cause of the condition.
