What We Do
Complex pain requires a complex approach.
Pelvic pain doesn’t exist in isolation. It’s tied to menstruation, anxiety, depression, weight gain, weight loss, digestion, and a myriad of other factors. More often than not, it takes several types of treatments in conjunction to help our patients feel better.
We start by addressing the root causes of chronic pelvic pain then explore all potential solutions.
What Is Chronic Pelvic Pain (CPP)?
Any pelvic pain lasting more than 6 months can be CPP.
CPP may include a variety of symptoms, including:
Painful menses (menstrual periods)
Limited physical activity due to pain
Lack of response to conventional treatment
CPP involves a number of factors and causes, including interstitial cystitis (IC), endometriosis (“endo”), pelvic floor dysfunction, vulvodynia, chronic vaginitis, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
And because it often coincides with psychological issues, treating CPP requires an open, ongoing dialogue between patient and physician.
How we treat chronic pelvic pain (CPP)
Over-the-counter (OTC) medications, prescription medications, and/or hormonal therapy
