Pelvic Pain

Pelvic pain can occur for multiple reasons and can affect both men and women. You should see your physician to rule out any systemic causes or problems with organs. However, if the problem is due to boney alignment, muscles or other soft tissues physical therapy can help. A physical therapy assessment will determine if muscles and joints affecting the pelvis are too lax or under too much strain or if weakness or over activity of muscles is present. A plan of care to address your specific problems will be developed. This plan may include: correcting dysfunctional movement patterns and posture; development of an individualized home program of exercise; modalities such as heat, ice, ultrasound, or electrical stimulation; and manual techniques such as myofascial and trigger point release and joint mobilization.
