Every day, millions of women suffer from pelvic pain. It can be caused by one of a number of problems. The pain is felt in the lower part of the abdomen between the groin and navel. Most women experience it as menstrual cramps or ovulation. It can also develop as a result of a food intolerance or some other gastrointestinal issue. Some types of pelvic pain can indicate a more serious health problem. (more…)
Have you asked your mom what she wants for Mother’s Day yet? You may want to begin that conversation with her because it’s fast approaching on May 14th. Your mom deserves the very best.

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.
Chronic pelvic pain is a condition that affects many women each year. The pain is generally spread throughout the entire pelvic region rather than found in a specific spot. Chronic pelvic pain resides in the area below the belly button and between the hips, and it lasts longer than six months. While there are cases when chronic pelvic pain can be a symptom of another disease, chronic pelvic pain can be a condition in its own right and needs to be treated properly to find relief. Many women may never receive a specific diagnosis that explains their pain, but that does not mean that the condition is not treatable. At Sovereign Rehabilitation our licensed physical therapists work to find a treatment that focuses on managing the pain so that patients can return to their active lifestyles.
