Abdominal & Pelvic
Pudendal neuralgia is a condition that affects both men and women and concerns chronic pain in the pudendal nerve. The pudendal nerve runs from the lower back, along the pelvic floor out to the perineum. It leads to pain in the genital area like the clitoris and vulva in women and penis and scrotum in men. It is a condition that occurs when the pudendal nerve is exposed to trauma or is compressed by big pelvic floor muscles and tight ligaments.
INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS PAIN
Interstitial cystitis pain is a bladder condition that causes problems during urination and possibly longer term pelvic floor pain. This condition is most common in women and affects people aged 30 to 40. Interstitial cystitis pain can have a big impact on ones lifestyle, relationships, work and emotional health.
ILIOINGUINAL NERVE PAIN
Ilioinguinal nerve pain or neuralgia is a common condition that causes lower abdominal and pelvic pain. It mainly manifests itself as a burning pain and numbness that radiates from the lower abdomen, through the genitalia, to the inner thigh. The ilioinguinal nerve is a mixed nerve that originates from the middle back, spreading to the lower back through the psoas muscle, transverse abdominis, and finally the internal oblique muscles. Ilioinguinal nerve pain gets worse with extension of the lower back because the movement causes friction on the nerve that runs through this region.
GENITOFEMORAL NERVE PAIN
Pelvic nerve pain may be caused by damage and dysfunction of the genitofemoral nerve. This type of pain is called genitofemoral nerve pain or genitofemoral neuralgia. Nerve Pain is often referred to as neuropathic pain, because it can occur wherever nerves exist. For genitofemoral nerve pain, the damaged nerves in the pelvis are the source of the pain.
Epigastric Pain is a name for the type of pain and discomfort that originates below the ribs in the area of the upper abdomen. It is often accompanied by other symptoms of the digestive system such as heartburn, bloating and gas.
Endometrial pain also known as Endometriosis, is a condition of abnormal growth of endometrial tissue outside the uterus. The inner lining of the uterus is called endometrium and is composed of the endometrial tissue that sometimes can start growing in other places outside the womb, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes.
This long term condition can affect women of any age but is most common for women in their 30s and 40s. Endometriosis is thought to affect around 11 percent of women in the United States aged 15 and 44 years.
