Ask For A Professionals Advice
About a year ago, you discovered that your pain during intercourse was not simply a result of a decrease in lubrication. And you know that it’s not normal to have pelvic pain every day. Have you been suffering from this condition all this time without consulting anyone? It is important for women suffering from pelvic floor dysfunction to seek help from professionals who specialize in the area. Here are three reasons why:
1) Your Pelvic Floor is Under Attack!
You need to visit an expert so they can determine whether there is a medical reason behind your pelvic pain and discomfort. When you ignore your problems, they will certainly worsen over time and become more difficult to treat. If the muscles of your pelvic floor have been affected by scar tissue or prolapse, you might need medical treatment and/or surgery to correct the issue. However, pelvic floor physical therapy can help in relieving pain and restoring the proper function of your pelvic muscles.

2) You Are Dealing with a Complex Condition
Even though there are many ways to describe pelvic floor muscle dysfunction, the most common description is “generalized hypertonicity” or tightness of your vaginal walls. This condition typically affects women who have had children because the opening of the birth canal stretches out these muscles during childbirth. If that has happened to you, it means that for some time now you have been living under constant pressure on your pelvic floor muscles.
How Long To Treat Pelvic Pain
The answer to this question is: it depends. If you know what your pelvic floor is and how to heal your pelvic floor pain, then the recovery time can be shortened drastically. The physiological reason we feel pain in our pelvis (or anywhere else) is because of misfiring or straining of our pelvic floor muscles.
What Is Our Pelvic Floor?
Our pelvis consists of many muscles which together form a sling around our hips and lower back. These muscles are responsible for stabilizing us during movement as well as giving us control over our body functions such as bowel and bladder release and sexual intimacy. When these muscles don’t work properly they pull on tendons, ligaments, bones, and nerves which causes them to feel pain. The pelvic floor muscles are also responsible for supporting our pelvic organs which include the bladder, uterus/cervix, bowel and rectum in women, and penis and prostate in men.
Most people with pelvic pain, either have a ‘hypertonic’ pelvic floor (too tight/stiff) or a ‘hypotonic’ one (too relaxed). When the pelvic floor is hypertonic it pulls on tendons, ligaments, bones, and nerves causing different kinds of pain depending on where it is located. If the pelvic floor is hypotonic then there will be less support to hold up the above-mentioned organs leading to prolapse (falling out) of some tissues.
Pelvic Pain Treatment
There are many ways that male pelvic floor pain can be treated. One of the most important things to do is to identify and address the underlying cause of the pain. Once the cause is identified, then specific treatments can be recommended.
Some common treatments for male pelvic floor pain include stretches and optimized workouts. These treatments can help to relax and stretch the muscles in the pelvic area, which can help to reduce or eliminate pain.
In addition, there are a number of other treatments that may be recommended depending on the cause of the pain. These may include medications, nerve blocks, or surgery.
It is important to work with a doctor who specializes in treating male pelvic floor pain get the best possible treatment for your individual situation.
