Pain with sitting presents to us with pain in the sit bone area, and the rectum, and sometimes out to the buttocks, when patients sit down, particularly on hard surfaces.
Quite often, patients who have pain with sitting have a high-stress lifestyle, high-stress job, and sometimes they’re holding their tension throughout the day in their pelvic floor muscles.
It’s important to make sure to get up once every hour, and to do proper breathing. This can help drop the pelvic floor, reset the muscles, and relieve tension in the area.
Something as simple as evaluating a patient’s chair at work, and their lumbar support, and their support for their pelvis, can really help alleviate a patient’s pain with sitting.
