Complex Pelvic Pain (CPP) is pain in the lowest part of the abdomen and pelvis.
The pain can be linked to the pelvic floor, nearby nerves, blood vessels, joints and to the pelvic organs, including the bowel, bladder, uterus or ovaries.
An Australian study of women aged 16-49 years found that 21.5% of women suffer from CPP.
We commonly treat women with a range of diagnoses, including:
- Overactive pelvic floor
- Chronic pelvic pain
- Interstitial cystitis or painful bladder syndrome
Pelvic pain and sexual dysfunction is distressing and can hugely impact life and relationships. An evidence based holistic approach to treatment is necessary to relieve pain and promote optimal bladder, bowel and sexual function.
