Women’s Integrative Pelvic Health Program

We offer supportive, individualized care and solutions to patients suffering from pelvic pain disorders. Pelvic pain is located between the belly button and the hips or groin area. It is thought to be persistent if it is lasting for three months or longer. This is an unfortunately common but under-treated condition that an estimated one in five women will experience during their reproductive life. The longer pain persists, the greater the chance that changes in the nervous system will occur which can perpetuate pain symptoms even longer; however, when recognized, this is treatable. 

Many people say they feel ‘broken’ when they have suffered for months or even years from pelvic pain and other associated conditions. They may notice that they are experiencing changes in urination, digestion and passing bowel movements, or develop pain in the vulvar area and experience pain during sexual intercourse. These changes are important for your healthcare provider to know about.

Our collaborative, holistic, integrative team approach focuses on each person as an individual. We partner with patients to identify contributing causes to their symptoms and find treatment approaches that meet a person’s individual needs. We work to empower our patients through education about their own bodies and conditions and treatment options to help them get back to doing the things they enjoy.

This can include the intestines, kidneys, ureters (tubes that connect the kidneys to the bladder), bladder, uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, peritoneum (lining of the pelvis), pelvic floor and pelvic girdle muscles, or nerves that go to any of these areas.
