Pain Management, treatment & relief of:

  • Endometriosis
  • Vaginismus
  • Vulvodynia/Vestibulodynia
  • Painful Intercourse – Dyspareunia

Pelvic pain can be very debilitating for anybody who experiences this. Chronic pain can affect a person’s ability to work, their relationships and decrease their sense of well-being and quality of life. Physiotherapy treatment approaches are based on current evidence based management of chronic pain which recognises the importance of the central nervous system and the role of the brain when it comes to pain. Assessment and treatment come from a biopsychosocial approach, and may include education, strategies to use in your day to day life, hands on therapy when appropriate and necessary, and stretching and exercises.
