Pelvic Pain Relief with Chiropractic Treatment Options
The pelvis serves as a foundation for your spine. It helps stabilize your back and the structures near to it by distributing weight equally. Plus, it also protects some of your vital organs (bladder, reproductive organs, and a part of the digestive tract). Because of the important role of the pelvic girdle complex, any kind of injury or dysfunction in this area can have a major effect on your basic body functions. When pelvic pain is present, you may find it difficult to take part in your daily activities and the pain symptoms can get even worse with certain everyday movements like sitting down or walking.
Today, we will dive into the most common causes of pelvic pain and we will discuss how chiropractors can help you manage and relieve the pain.
Why Do You Have Pelvic Pain?
If you are experiencing pelvic pain, it is important to identify the underlying reason that leads to your symptoms of pain. The most common causes include:
- Conditions related to the female reproductive system- for example, ovarian cysts, ovarian cancer, menstrual cramps, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), uterine fibroids, etc
- Dysfunction of joints in the pelvic girdle complex, such as sacroiliac or pubic symphysis dysfunction
- Bladder disorders- for example, urinary tract infection
- Kidney infection or kidney stones
- Weak core
- Spine misalignment
- Injuries like broken pelvic bones
As illustrated above, the most common causes are related to internal organ issues or from mechanical changes.
Chiropractic Care for Pelvic Pain
Now that you are aware of the most common causes of pelvis pain, you may be wondering what you can do to feel better. One of the best options for relieving pelvic pain is chiropractic care. Since most people experience pelvic pain within the joints of the pelvis, it can be beneficial to visit a health professional who understands how the entire skeletal structure functions, including those painful pelvic joints (known as the sacroiliac joints and pubic symphysis). Chiropractors are trained to detect any imbalances in the spine and the pelvis and can restore the proper alignment. They use various chiropractic treatment options to restore the balance such as:
- adjustments (to the pelvis and spine)
- manual therapy
- posture training
- a personalized exercise plan
Ultimately, regaining the balance within your body can bring you many health benefits. Most likely you will have less pain, your ability to heal will increase, and you may realize an improvement in your basic body functions due to the better nerve flow from better spine/pelvis alignment.
