Pelvic Pain


Let Maximum Rehabilitation Services help you find pelvic pain relief!

The pelvis comprises the bones in the central portion of your skeleton, where the spine transitions to our lower extremities. This region houses some vital organs, including our reproductive organs. It also serves as an attachment point for some of the strongest muscles in the body.

Pelvic pain can occur for several reasons and, depending on the location of the pain, often points to the source of the pain. For example, pain in the back is often connected to lower back-related conditions, whereas pain in the front is usually due to hip joint issues.

Our physical therapists at Maximum Rehabilitation Services specialize in treating pelvic pain related to reproductive health and associated with the pelvic floor muscles. This type of pain can be limiting and, for some people, even a bit embarrassing. It can hinder your daily life and prevent you from doing some of the most intimate and personal functions related to your bowel and bladder or your sexual function.

Fortunately, pelvic floor rehabilitation can help ease your symptoms of pelvic dysfunction and strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, so you don’t experience additional problems in the future.

If you are experiencing pelvic pain, it is essential to identify the source of your problems and get the help you need to resolve them.

How does physical therapy help pelvic health?

Our Chicago, IL, Evergreen Park, IL, and Munster, IN physical therapists, will start with a comprehensive evaluation to identify the source of your symptoms and all the factors affecting your current situation. Pelvic floor rehabilitation and accompanying treatments have been proven to treat various conditions resulting in pelvic pain.

Some of the most common pelvic conditions that physical therapy treats include:

Postpartum pelvic pain:

Often, the pain develops in the sacroiliac (SI) joint, tailbone, or the hips and lower back. Some experience pain in the pelvis itself on the pubic symphysis.

After giving birth, it is common for new mothers to experience strained or even torn muscles and connective tissue in their pelvic floor region. Pelvic floor muscle tension or pain in the area between your vagina and rectum (i.e., perineum) is common during and after childbirth.

Pelvic floor rehabilitation helps reduce pain and strengthen any tense or damaged muscles so you can resume normal, pain-free function.

Urinary Incontinence:

Leaking urine when coughing, laughing, and sneezing is common throughout pregnancy, worsening in the third trimester and persisting after delivery.

There are many helpful treatment options for strengthening the pelvic floor muscles before and after birth. Education on resolving and managing symptoms with pelvic floor rehabilitation focusing on strengthening the muscles under your bladder will help treat and eliminate incontinence issues.

Pain following abdominal surgery

Pain in the pelvic region is possible if you are recovering from a recent surgical procedure, including abdominal, reproductive, or orthopedic (i.e., spine or hip joint).

Fortunately, our highly skilled physical therapists can identify the source of your pain and any factors contributing to your condition so you can find relief.

Manual therapy techniques effectively alleviate muscle tension, freeing up any adhesions forming and increasing blood flow to assist the healing process. Targeted stretches and strengthening exercises can help improve overall mobility and function in your pelvic region.

While these are just a few of the most common conditions of pelvic dysfunction that our physical therapist can, there are several additional pelvic conditions that pelvic floor rehabilitation can relieve, including: Painful intercourse, Pelvic organ prolapse, Difficulty/painful urination (i.e. dyspareunia), and Abdominal muscle tearing (i.e., diastasis recti)

Our Maximum Rehabilitation Services physical therapist will get to the root of your problem and, more importantly, help guide you through the solutions you need to feel good again!
