The pelvis is the foundation upon which much of the body’s stability relies and is a key player in feminine health and wellness. When this region isn’t as strong or healthy as it could be, women can begin to experience pelvic pain that impacts their daily quality of life, mobility, and overall health.
Our medical team at Fort Worth Center for Pelvic Medicine is committed to providing women of all ages with access to comprehensive feminine health care. If you’d like more information about our practice or are interested in scheduling a consultation at our Fort Worth office, contact us today! We look forward to hearing from you.
What Causes Pelvic Pain?
Because of the unique shape of the female body, the pelvis provides a great deal of support for the rest of the body’s structure and organs. The strength of the pelvis depends on the integrity of the spine and hips, as well as a set of interwoven muscles called the pelvic floor.
Like a hammock, the muscles of the pelvic floor cradle and support the lower internal organs while both surrounding the urethra, vagina, and rectum. When these muscles become compromised or begin to spasm, patients can begin to experience pelvic pain along with a number of unpleasant side effects, including:
- Painful intercourse
- Urinary tract infections
In addition to problems in skeletal structure and pelvic floor muscles, pelvic pain can be caused by:
- Ovarian cysts
- Neurological conditions
What Treatments are Available for Pelvic Pain?
Because the exact causes of pelvic pain can vary, the treatments used to correct each woman’s case vary. Depending on the nature of your pain, our specialists may recommend changes to your diet or lifestyle habits. They may also administer physical therapy, medications, and surgery as needed.
At the Fort Worth Center for Pelvic Medicine, Michael England, MD and Elizabeth Weaver, WHNP evaluate, diagnose, and treat the pelvic pain. Using their combined expertise in female health, Dr. England and Elizabeth work together to provide all of their patients with comprehensive, individualized therapies to relieve pelvic pain.
