Chiropractic Solutions for Pelvic Pain and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Chiropractic care may help manage pelvic pain and pelvic floor dysfunction. Chiropractors use various techniques to manipulate the spine and other joints to improve function and relieve pain. Some chiropractors may also use soft tissue techniques to help relax and release tension in the pelvic muscles.


It is crucial to consult with a chiropractor who is experienced in treating these conditions to determine if chiropractic care is appropriate for you.


What Is Pelvic Pain?


Pelvic pain occurs in the pelvis, the lower part of the torso located between the bones of the hips. Pelvic pain can be acute, mostly coming on suddenly and severe or chronic, meaning it persists for a long time.




Various factors can cause pelvic pain. The common ones include muscle spasms, inflammation, and weakness or tightness in the pelvic muscles. Other possible causes of pelvic pain include:


  • Endometriosis

  • Pelvic inflammatory disease

  • Irritable bowel syndrome

  • Interstitial cystitis

  • Prostatitis


What Is Pelvic Floor Dysfunction?


Pelvic floor dysfunction describes a group of conditions that can cause pain, discomfort, or other problems in the pelvic area. These conditions may be related to the muscles, ligaments, or other tissues supporting pelvic organs.




  • Pain in the lower abdomen, pelvis, or lower back

  • Painful or difficult urination or bowel movements

  • Incontinence (leaking urine or feces)

  • Pain during sexual intercourse




Various factors, like pelvic pain, can cause pelvic floor dysfunction. Other possible causes of pelvic floor dysfunction include childbirth, surgery, and certain medical conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome or prostate problems.


How Can Chiropractic Care Help?
