Many women experience pain in the pelvis or perineum. There are many conditions that can contribute to hyperactivity of the pelvic floor muscles which can cause significant pain and dysfunction. Some include:
- Dyspareunia (pain with sexual intercourse)
- Interstitial Cystitis
- Post-surgical (laparoscopy, episiotomy, caesarean section etc.)
- Chronic musculoskeletal pain e.g. low back pain, sacroiliac joint dysfunction
Pelvic floor physiotherapy can be useful in improving pelvic pain symptoms and quality of life.
