Physical therapy may be indicated as well to include pelvic floor exercises. Behavioral therapy can help individuals deal more effectively with pelvic pain and decrease the baseline discomfort experienced.
Endometriosis treatment includes nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, hormonal therapy, and potentially laparoscopic surgery to remove scar tissue, growths, or adhesions while leaving reproductive organs intact.
In severe cases, patients may be required to undergo a hysterectomy. Unfortunately, about 30% of women referred to pain clinics for pelvic pain treatment have already undergone a hysterectomy.
For those individuals who do not have a surgical solution for pelvic pain relief (or it failed), medication management may help along with interventional pain treatments with Arizona pain doctors which may include:
- Ilioinguinal Nerve Blocks
- Superior Hypogastric Plexus Block – 70% success rate overall
- Spinal Cord Stimulator Treatment
Despite considerable workup and substantial treatment, pelvic pain may not have a surgical solution that relieves it. Therefore, nonoperative pain management may be effective with a comprehensive Arizona pain center.
These treatments have a low risk profile and potentially highly effective outcomes. If you or a loved one suffers from chronic pelvic pain, help is available.
