What is Chronic Pelvic Pain?

Chronic pelvic pain is pain that lasts for 6 months or longer, from below the navel to the groin, genital area, and even to the legs and feet, and loss of function. If this pain causes behavioral disorders in the patient, it is called chronic pain syndrome.

There may be many reasons; Like endometriosis, pelvic adhesions, musculoskeletal problems, gastrointestinal problems, urinary tract problems, pudendal neuralgia and sciatica, genital area problems are also causes of chronic pelvic pain. In treatment, action is taken towards the cause; pain relievers, antidepressants, antiepileptics can be used. Again, the treatment methods used in physiotherapy are an important step of these diseases. As for surgery, there are two main methods: removing the pelvic organ or mass that causes pain, or removing the visible lesions by leaving the organ in place.

Neuropelveology is a new discipline in the world, it studies the nerves in the pelvis (lumbal nerves, sacral nerves, pelvic nerves) themselves or the vessels, muscles, etc entrapping the nerves. It is a science that brings a different perspective to the diagnosis and treatment of patients with chronic inguinal pain and tries to cure the chronic inguinal pain that these patients have been experiencing for many years.
