Pelvic pain is defined as pain in the anterior lower abdomen including the organs. In females, pelvic pain may be a sign of menstrual cramps, ovulation, or a gastrointestinal issue such as food intolerance or postpartum pelvic girdle pain.
Pelvic pain often affects women during and after pregnancy due to the weight of the growing baby or trauma during delivery, causing instability and limitation of mobility and functioning in the pelvis.
This is often due to, or caused by, a pelvic floor that is overly-contracted, tight or tense. Common symptoms include constipation, painful sexual intercourse, incontinence and pain in the lower back, hip and pelvic area.
Active stimulation of the pelvic floor to intensely relax the deep muscles that may be overly-contracted or tense.
Targeted exercises focused on strengthening and/or stretching the pelvic floor muscles.
Intra-vaginal treatment to stimulate the female intimate area and treat dryness and laxity.
