What is Pelvic Pain? Learn How to Rid Your Body of It

Do not suffer from pelvic pain any longer. Seek Myofascial Release Therapy to rid yourself of any pain by stopping it right in its very roots. Restriction of fascia in the pelvic region leads not only to unbearable pain but can also cause dysfunction in other parts of the body such as the shoulders, head, and neck. Applying gentle manual pressure on the affected area is effective in getting rid off such troubles.


Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Fascial restrictions in the pelvic area can cause pain and dysfunction locally as well as in other parts of the body like neck, head, and shoulders.

Many times fascia adheres to the bladder and urethra creating an environment for infection since fascial restrictions impede the proper elimination of toxins and waste products from the cells. When the fascia tightens around the bladder, it limits its capacity to enlarge, causing the need to urinate frequently and painfully. Tightness of the fascia around the ovaries and uterus can cause endometriosis and menstrual pain.

Abdominal or pelvic scars from surgeries, episiotomies or traumas, such as sexual abuse can cause menstrual dysfunction, pelvic pain, painful intercourse, constipation, diarrhea or hemorrhoids.

A misaligned coccyx from falls, pelvic torsion or childbirth defect can cause problems in the pelvic area as well as back pain, neck pain, and headaches.

Using gentle external and internal (vaginally and rectally) myofascial release techniques will ameliorate or rid the pain.

Myofascial release can be helpful following breast cancer mastectomies, breast reductions and augmentation to eliminate pain and soften the scars. The scars can grow inside like a vine and can reach the respiratory diaphragm and into the neck. This can cause respiratory problems and compel the person forward creating a posterior strain in the back and neck resulting in headaches as well as back and neck pain.

Myofascial Release Therapy is helpful as a preventative measure to keep your breasts healthy and restriction-free.
