What is Pelvic Pain?

Pelvic pain refers to pain in the lower abdomen and pelvis, which can be acute or chronic. Various factors, including musculoskeletal issues, gynecological conditions, gastrointestinal disorders, and urological problems, can cause this condition. Unfortunately, many people with pelvic pain don’t receive the proper treatment they need, leading to ongoing discomfort and increasing difficulties.

The effects of untreated pelvic pain can be far-reaching, limiting your ability to work, enjoy hobbies, and even perform simple tasks like walking or sitting. Studies have shown that people with untreated pelvic pain often experience a lower quality of life, with impacts on their physical, emotional, and social well-being.1

Understanding Pelvic Pain Signs & Symptoms

Chronic discomfort in the pelvic region is a common symptom of pelvic pain. This discomfort can range from a mild ache to a severe, debilitating pain that affects daily activities. It may be constant or intermittent and can worsen with activities such as sitting, standing, or sexual intercourse. Effective chronic discomfort management involves identifying the underlying cause and implementing medication, physical therapy, and lifestyle changes.

Lower abdominal pain is another key symptom of pelvic pain, often described as a cramping or sharp pain in the lower abdomen. This pain can be associated with conditions such as endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, or irritable bowel syndrome. Addressing lower abdominal pain through a comprehensive treatment plan that includes medication, dietary adjustments, and physical therapy can help alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life.

Urinary symptoms, such as frequent urination, urgency, or pain during urination, are often associated with pelvic pain. These symptoms can indicate underlying conditions such as interstitial cystitis or urinary tract infections. Effective management of urinary symptoms involves diagnosing the underlying cause and implementing appropriate treatments, including medication, bladder training, and dietary modifications.

How Pelvic Pain Affects The Body

To effectively manage and treat pelvic pain, it’s important to understand how it affects your body. Pelvic pain can manifest in various ways, depending on the underlying cause. Some common symptoms include:

  • Persistent pain in the lower abdomen, pelvis, or lower back
  • Pain during intercourse or while using the bathroom
  • Cramping or pressure in the pelvic area
    Abnormal bleeding or discharge
  • Digestive issues, such as bloating or constipation


At Canyon Pain Center, our specialists focus on advanced pain management techniques to alleviate your symptoms and promote healing. We take a comprehensive approach, considering the specific factors contributing to your pelvic pain. By tailoring our treatment plans to your unique needs, we aim to reduce your discomfort, improve your pelvic function, and help you regain your quality of life.

Common Causes of Pelvic Pain

Several factors can contribute to the development of pelvic pain, characterized by discomfort in the lower abdomen and pelvic region.

While the exact cause may vary, some common factors have been identified:

  • Musculoskeletal Issues: Such as pelvic floor dysfunction or hip problems.
  • Gynecological Conditions: Including endometriosis, fibroids, or ovarian cysts.2
  • Gastrointestinal Disorders: These include irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
  • Urological Problems: Including urinary tract infections (UTIs) or interstitial cystitis.
  • Infections: Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or other infections that affect the pelvic region.

Understanding the common causes of pelvic pain can help individuals take steps to reduce their risk and seek appropriate treatment when necessary.3
