THE PELVIS AND ITS NEIGHBORS

Your pelvis doesn't stand alone. Remember "your thigh bone's connected to your knee bone..." Well, your pelvis is connected to your low back, hips, pubic symphysissacrum and tailbone. A dysfunction to one of these structures may refer pain to the pelvic region or vise versa.

For example, if you have a "pain in your butt", it may be from the pelvic floor and/or its neighboring structures. 

Here is a list of diagnoses that are commonly associated with pelvic floor dysfunction: 

  • SI joint pain/instability

  • Coccydynia (tailbone pain)

  • Pubic symphysis pain

  • Hip/groin pain

  • Sciatica/pudendal nerve pain

Sometimes you may not even be aware your pelvic floor isn't working efficiently. It can be a "silent cause" of your symptoms. If you have tried other strategies to relieve your symptoms without improvement, go see a specialist to piece the whole picture together. 

THE REST OF YOUR BODY MATTERS TOO

Taking a holistic approach means looking at the entire body and how your full body moves, functions and feels to you. Feet, ankles, knee, neck and thoracic spine all matter too.

 

Having started my career in orthopedics and treating all parts of the body for nearly a decade, I can't disregard that they work in synergy with each other. 

Here's a list of some other typical orthopedic conditions I treat as well: 

  • knee pain

  • foot and ankle pain/stiffness

  • carpal tunnel

  • thoracic (middle back) pain

  • neck pain/headaches

  • hip bursitis, tendonitis

  • shoulder pain such as tendonitis, rotator cuff strains, impingement
