It’s estimated that up to one-third of all women will experience pelvic pain at some point in their lives. This could mean a constant, dull ache or a sharp stabbing sensation, and it’s considered a chronic condition if it lasts more than four to six months.
The list for its potential causes can seem endless – everything from sitting for long periods of time to menstruation to intercourse can trigger discomfort below the hips. Luckily though, after an examination by a physician, it’s usually determined not to be a sign of a more serious condition.
Less lucky – chronic pelvic pain can affect a woman’s day-today life, impacting her mood and decreasing her energy and productivity levels. Women with chronic pelvic pain also have poorer general health overall.
Many think that the only way to get relief from their symptoms is pharmacological, but there are actually several medication-free ways to help treat uncomfortable pelvic pain. At Sovereign, we have therapists who are specially trained to treat and work with women on health issues specific to them, which leads to better, more individualized care and more effective treatment solutions.
Our therapists offer exercises and manual therapies to stretch and relax tight hip and pelvic muscles, biofeedback, and electrical stimulation, TENS, heat/cold and ultrasounds to help treat your pelvic pain.
Lower abdominal discomfort isn’t something you have to live with. Call Sovereign today to learn more from our specialized women’s health therapists.
