Chronic Pelvic Pain

Chronic Pelvic Pain

Chronic pelvic pain is a prevalent and challenging condition that affects many women. It is characterized as persistent non-cyclic pain in the lower abdomen or pelvic region lasting more than six months, unrelated to pregnancy or cancer. The pelvis houses numerous organ systems, including the uterus, ovaries/fallopian tubes, vagina, bladder, urethra, pelvic bowel muscles, hips and low back, intestines, and rectum. Some even consider elements of our emotional and energetic well-being to reside in the pelvis. This complex system underscores the importance of a holistic approach to chronic pain treatment. Often, chronic pelvic pain involves a complex interplay between gynecologic, urinary, gastrointestinal, endocrine (hormone), neurologic, musculoskeletal, and psychological systems.

Regardless of the underlying cause, pelvic pain can significantly impact daily life. Many individuals with chronic pelvic pain struggle with sexual intimacy, experience a diminished libido, and face challenges in relationships and daily activities due to pain. A multidisciplinary approach is essential to address the root cause of pain and manage symptoms effectively.

There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for chronic pelvic pain. Our approach is tailored to the individual, considering their history and symptoms. Our toolkit encompasses a diverse array of therapeutic treatment options that play a pivotal role in enhancing circulation, promoting detoxification, and alleviating inflammation and pain. Holistic pelvic care and pelvic floor therapy, which we offer at Amber Wellness Group, encompass the energetic and emotional aspects of healing in addition to the physical. We also offer non hormonal laser and radiofrequency therapies (MonaLisa Touch and ThermiVA) that are effective at addressing pelvic floor and bladder causes of pain.

Chronic pelvic pain demands a comprehensive and individualized approach to treatment. By understanding the unique aspects of each person’s experience and considering the multifaceted nature of the condition, we can better guide our efforts towards healing and well-being. Our goal at Amber Wellness Group is not just to manage symptoms but to treat each patient as a whole person, and to empower individuals to thrive in their daily lives. When we embrace healing from the ground up, and address the underlying causes, we gain a true sense of health and vitality. If you or someone you know is grappling with chronic pelvic pain, our team is here to support and guide you on the journey to recovery and renewed well-being.
