Pelvic Pain and Dysfunction

Having a balanced pelvis, one free of tightness and restriction, is one of the core principles of Myofascial Release (MFR).It should be no surprise that pelvic disorders can often successfully be treated tolerated. A huge disservice is done when urinary leakage is blamed entirely on menopause, childbirth, or simply advancing age. Pelvic pain and dysfunction does not have to be endured. Very often scar tissue that resulted from a cesarean section, hysterectomy, or other pelvic surgery can create crushing pressures that cause tightness in the pelvis, creating back or pelvic pain, bowel or bladder changes, painful sex, infertility, as well as more far reaching problems. Pain from prostatitis, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, and tailbone difficulties can be treated effectively. Traditional physical therapy interventions focus on training or strengthening the pelvic floor and pelvic region. The problem with this model of thinking is that often the soft tissue and musculature is already too tight. It is not too weak, it is too tight! Free up the tissue and muscle and your body can function normally again and without pain.

All of these problems can be helped. Myofascial Release at the Pain Relief Center can help you return to the life you deserve.

Pain and dysfunction due to the short and long term effects of scar issue, surgical and non-surgical, can be profound. Imagine your body as a large sweater. Take a fistful of that sweater. The yarn that is contained within your hand represents the scar itself. Imagine now how threads of yarn from other parts of the sweater get pulled into the palm of your hand. This is how scar tissue may effect you. The scar itself can be problematic, but the far-reaching effects of scarring can reach into far off places, causing pain or compromised motion and function. Scar tissue can impair nerve tissue as well as other soft tissue (muscle, fascia, digestive organs, etc).

Scar tissue assessment is a standard component of the evaluation model at the Pain Relief Center. If restrictions due to scar tissue are identified, Myofascial Release is an effective modality to reduce or eliminate these restrictions.
