At Pelvic Rehabilitation Medicine, we believe that treating pelvic pain takes a whole-body approach. Persistent pelvic pain affects the muscles and nerves of the pelvis.
At PRM, we are experts in evaluating and treating the muscles and nerves of the pelvis. We are on the ‘front lines’ of the various causes of chronic pelvic pain. It’s important for patients to understand that persistent pain can cause the muscles of the pelvic floor, back, abdomen and hips to become hypertonic. In other words, the muscles respond to pain by becoming spastic. Pain that is chronic can lead to muscles that stay “stuck” in the shortened, contracted, and weakened position.
We are filling the gap in healthcare for pelvic pain patients.
We collaborate with Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy to provide ‘Managed Physical Therapy’ to help patients who may want to decrease surgery, hormones, or opioids to resolve their pelvic pain symptoms. We provide a functional, restorative approach to persistent pelvic pain that has proven to help decrease pain and restore function.
In short, we are non-operative pelvic pain experts with extensive experience in treating pelvic pain and pelvic floor dysfunction.
This allows us to:
Pelvic joints include the pubic symphysis, sacroiliac joints, and hip joints. Pelvic floor dysfunction can occur when these joints are not working in harmony often causing tight and weak nearby muscles and nerves. Impairments of the sacroiliac joint, low back, coccyx and/or hip joint can contribute to pain and loss of function.
A multimodal approach to healing is preferred by our team. We refer to this as a combination of means of treatment – we believe it works best in treating chronic pain. This comprehensive treatment plan may include our pelvic nerve and muscle treatments, medications, lifestyle changes and physical therapy.
We are pelvic pain specialists that offer a treatment approach that reaches the nerves to fire correctly, function normally, and stop causing you pain.
We work to reverse damage, reset the conditions of the pelvis, and retrain the nerves and muscles to work like they should.
To effectively evaluate and treat pelvic floor dysfunction, our practice works with several prominent physical therapists in your community. As a national healthcare organization, we often say we are ‘quarterbacking the care’ of these experts. These physical therapists have advanced, specialized training that is essential to successfully resolve pelvic floor problems.
Pelvic floor physical therapy plays a key role in calming and desensitizing the central nervous system. Therapists evaluate and treat dysfunction of the pelvic floor muscles using a range of techniques and modalities:
