    Pelvic pain can be acute or chronic. It should never be ignored as the consequences of not acting can be serious.
    Obviously the source/reason for the pain has to be determined. There are numerous causes of pelvic pain some of which include, but, are not limited to. -
    Infection, menstrual pain, endomentriosis, urinary tract infection, pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy (when a pregnancy has implanted in the fallopian tubes) ovarian cysts, pelvic inflammatory disease, pain during sexual intercourse, fibroids, miscarriage. It follows therefore that the treatment of pelvic pain depends on the cause.
    If you are experiencing pelvic pain I urge you not to speculate as to the reason but rather have a full investigation with your GP

    Treatment for pelvic pain depends on a variety of situations and circumstances.  How long has the patient had pain?  Is the pain referring? Does the pain increase in the afternoons? Is the patient keeping a pain pattern diary - do they know when the pain increases (bending, lifting, sitting. walking, sleeping, lunging, one legged stance, when they go to the toilet, when they are exhausted and fatigued). Does the pain decrease on weekends (when you aren't sitting all day?)? Many factors contribute to a successful treatment plan.  See your local GP & Exercise Physiologist to create a management plan to improve your function and reduce pain.
