• Levator ani syndrome (increased tension in pelvic floor muscles) • Post-surgical complications (e.g., pain following a hysterectomy, hernia repair, cesarean section, and/or prostatectomy)
nerve (which originates near the bottom of your spine) • Irritable bowel syndrome
Any of these conditions may lead to inadequate support of the organs contained with your pelvic cavity, increased pressure or inflammation of nerves, muscles, and other connective tissues (including your bladder), and impaired pelvic bone alignment. These symptoms can be frustrating, painful, and embarrassing, andmay limit your tolerance to daily participation in desired activities, including exercise. If you have experienced pelvic pain due to any of the preceding conditions, physical therapy can help resume a healthier, normal life free from pelvic pain.
