The pelvis encompasses the lowest part of the abdomen, as well as the pelvis. Women may experience pelvic pain in the organs of the reproductive, urinary, or digestive systems. Pelvic pain can also arise from musculoskeletal origins.
Pelvic pain can manifest as sharp or dull. You may notice it all the time, or it may come and go. Pelvic pain sometimes only occurs at specific times, such as during menstruation or urination. You deserve attention and treatment even if your pelvic pain is mild; early treatment can prevent it from worsening and causing complications.
Pelvic pain isn’t always isolated, either. It may radiate to your lower back, buttocks, or thighs.
Women may rule out issues with their reproductive system that cause pelvic pain, such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, or severe menstrual cramps. These issues are first addressed by an OB/GYN. However, some female-specific issues such as pelvic inflammatory disease and vulvodynia have no specific cure and can be treated with pain interventions offered by the doctors at Rincon Pain and Spine.
Men and women may also experience pelvic pain due to digestive disease, kidney stones, and fibromyalgia, among other possible causes. The doctors at Rincon Pain and Spine evaluate your symptoms and perform screening tests to determine the root cause of your pelvic pain so that they can offer the most accurate and customized treatment plan.
The doctors at Rincon Pain and Spine take a comprehensive approach to treat pelvic pain. They look at you as a whole person, not just a set of symptoms. Their screenings and evaluations consider all possible causes and areas of pain, not just the immediate pelvic area.
Inflammation and irritation of nerves caused by injury or disease or muscle contractions respond to treatments such as physical therapy and anti-inflammatory and pain medications. The doctors may also recommend antibiotics or oral contraceptives (for some women). Your treatment really depends on the nature and possible causes of your pelvic pain.
