Medical conditions that cause pelvic pain
Endometriosis – a condition that affects ovaries, fallopian tubes, and tissue around the uterus and ovaries where areas of endometriosis bleed each month, resulting in inflammation and scarring.
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease – is an infection of the upper part of the female reproductive system namely the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries, and inside of the pelvis
Fibroids – are benign smooth muscle tumors of the uterus. Most women have no symptoms while others may have painful or heavy periods
Irritable Bowel Syndrome – is a group of symptoms—including abdominal pain and changes in the pattern of bowel movements without any evidence of underlying damage.
These conditions you are more likely to need a consultation with your GP or a specialist doctor. However the Osteopath should screen for these conditions and make a referral to a doctor, if necessary.
We even offer a free 15 minute assessment to see if treatment is safe and suitable for you.
