The pelvis, like any other area of the body, consists of bones, muscles, ligaments, arteries, veins and nerves. It has the added complexity of connecting to and supporting the organs, as well as its function as a foundation for the core muscles and an anchor to the spine. All of these structures exist in a matrix of connective tissue that connects distant areas of the body into a single unit. With such complexity and with such vital functions, is it any wonder we can experience pain and dysfunction?
Unfortunately there is often a taboo surrounding discussion of the pelvis, which creates difficulties in patients receiving accurate diagnosis and effective care. When you begin physical therapy we will first discuss your history, symptoms, and goals. From there you will be evaluated, and based on the findings we will create a plan for your care that will include treatment in clinic as well as homework for self care.
