Understanding Physio for Pelvic pain
When considering how physiotherapy is important for the management of Endometriosis, close your eyes and see the growling tiger in the corner of the room. Your first reaction is usually to run and as your body becomes primed to the inflammatory response with each cycle of pain, your local muscle and nervous system reacts in a protective way usually by tensing. If that tiger hangs around for a while, the motor system gets ‘stuck’ and that leads to pain, deconditioning and then limitations to all activity. Endometriosis is a condition that leaves your motor system and the related nerves stuck in hyperdrive and hypersensitive mode. Physiotherapy can be a guide to ‘rewire’ your system. A physiotherapist can retrain any system that has become stuck on hyperdrive, and this is more than just your pelvic floor or ‘core’. It can be your breathing, abdomen, or even your bladder and bowel!
