Characteristics of Chronic Pelvic Pain

  • CPP is defined as pelvic pain which has or has no pain in the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, and rectum that
  • Has persisted for more than six months.
  • Is severe to cause functional disability and requires medical or surgical treatment.

The pelvis contains so many different structures, they can also be responsible for pelvic pain. The potential sources of pelvic pain are

  • Peripheral and central nervous system.
  • Reproductive organs – uterus and ovaries.
  • Blood vessels.
  • Muscles and fascia of the pelvic floor and abdominal wall.
  • Gastrointestinal tract.
  • Ureters and bladder.

‘Referral pain’ may occur when the pain from a deep internal organ gets perceived as radiating from a more superficial body area. For example, women may get pain in the lower abdominal wall, vagina, or at skin over the groin. On the other hand, “Neuropathic pain” requires pelvic treatment in Chennai because there can be damage to any part of the nervous system involving the brain, spinal cord, and nerves.
