Many women who live with gynaecological pain don’t feel comfortable discussing it or seeking treatment. However, pain in this region can be debilitating and if left untreated can cause significant damage to the joints in the area and even, in some cases, the reproductive organs. Dull, burning, sharp and cramping pains in the pelvic region can be extremely distressing, especially when associated with menstruation or sexual intercourse. Both acute and chronic pain should be considered serious and arranging an appointment with a specialist in pain medicine is recommended. The causes of gynaecological pain are far reaching and can include anything from infection and adhesions to conditions such as endometriosis or the growth of fibroids in and around the uterus.
Diagnosing Gynaecological Pain
Full diagnosis of gynaecological pain ensures we have a full understanding of your symptoms, type of pain and any causes you may think are relevant to your pain. Not all people have an indication of the cause of their pain but any trauma, injury or possible causes you have in mind are worth disclosing in case they can help in the diagnostic process. At The Holistic Pain Management Clinic we specialise in all types of pain and finding the right treatment for them.
Your diagnostic process will include:
Full medical history with a focus on your pain and its development
Full medical assessment
Medical examination where appropriate
Further testing including MRI scanning, X-Ray, ultrasounds and more as necessary
Diagnosis and treatment options
Treatment of Gynaecological Pain
The type of pain and the cause of your pain are central to the treatment you receive. All our patients have an individual treatment plan organised on the basis of their symptoms and the type of pain and any underlying conditions discovered.
Treatment for body pain may incorporate:
Access to the latest and most effective analgesics
Optional minimally invasive pain management procedures and therapies
Nerve blocking procedures
Pelvic physical therapy
Complementary therapies including acupuncture
These are just some of the treatment options and there are further routes to explore should none of these not work for your individual situation.
