Pelvic pain treatment
What is pelvic pain?
When one has pain in the private area, it can be extremely stressful and upsetting! Having pain in private parts is unmentionable socially; as a result, one often suffers in silence.
Pelvic pain can take many different forms and locate in various body regions, such as the genital or rectal areas, lower abdomen, or deep in the pelvis. Genital pain includes vulvar pain (vulvodynia), testicular pain and penile pain.
The pelvis forms the core foundation of the body and as such has links to many of the body’s other areas and systems. For this reason, determining the causes of pelvic pain is often complicated. It requires many years of training in hands-on techniques and human anatomy to treat pelvic pain effectively.
