Since 2017, Pelvic Rehabilitation Medicine (PRM) has provided a modern, functional wellness solution to a health crisis that affects 15% of women and 10% of men. Persistent pelvic pain is often overlooked, untreated, and misguided.
At PRM, our mission is to decrease the time patients are suffering from pelvic pain symptoms.
Our unique outpatient, nonoperative, minimally invasive ultrasound guided approach to the pelvis is the first of its kind in the country. Our team focuses on diagnosing and treating chronic pelvic pain in women and men with a procedure that is safe, effective, and more comfortable than what has been offered by pelvic pain providers in the past. Patients go on with their day with no down time. Our unique procedural approach, combined with our providers focusing solely on quarterbacking the care for pelvic pain patients in an interdisciplinary fashion has been the key to our success.
In chronic pain states, the nervous system is on constant overdrive, this increases the firing rate of nerves and creates an environment where a patient has a heightened sense of awareness of all senses, Pain being one of them. Essentially, a chronic pain state is a system where a patient’s nervous system is stuck on “high” and our goal is to turn down the knob which controls the nervous system. We do this by breaking the neuro-myofascial feedback loop.
Goals of our Program:
The interconnectedness of the body helps explain why pain is such a complex thing. And that’s why, when we are managing pain, we consider so many different factors. Each patient’s perception of pain is unique. The way each individual regulates stress is personal. Nutrition, diet, exercise – it all differs from one person to the next, and it all plays a vital role in each patient’s quality of life and individual road to better health.
As we say, “Everything works together.”
Dr. Allyson Shrikhande, a board certified Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation specialist, is the Chair of the Medical Education Committee for the International Pelvic Pain Society. She is working with other experts in the field of chronic pelvic pain to develop training modules for residents and physicians interested in learning about the diagnosis, treatment, and management of chronic pelvic pain. A leading expert on pelvic health and a respected researcher, author and lecturer, Dr. Shrikhande is a recognized authority on male and female pelvic pain diagnosis and treatment.
Dr. Shrikhande is passionate about this cause and dedicated to helping men and women with pelvic pain who often suffer without anyone willing to listen, understand or find the cause of their pain. That’s why she has traveled the world to work with expert gynecologists, urologists, physiatrists and interventional pain physicians.
Dr. Shrikhande has distilled this global expertise into a minimally invasive, cutting-edge approach to the treatment of pelvic pain and pelvic floor muscle dysfunction. With an extensive background in mainstream clinical medicine, she also makes use of many alternative and holistic approaches.
She has published peer-reviewed articles on the treatment of muscle pain in academic journals and works closely with renowned pelvic pain gynecologists and urologists. Taking a team approach, she works with specialists in pelvic floor physical therapy, kinetics and movement, as well as acupuncturists, nutritionists, cognitive behavioral therapists, and functional medicine physicians.
The East 41st Street office is not only in the heart of Manhattan but it’s the heart of Pelvic Rehabilitation Medicine. This is the first location opened by the PRM team and continues to be the backbone of our operation. Lead by our founding doctor, Allyson Shrikhande, this NY location is near and dear to us.
Our Manhattan location is the Clinical Headquarters for Pelvic Rehabilitation Medicine. We are working every day on research to further understand complex pelvic pain conditions and working to publish our findings to share with the medical world.
