Many medical providers are unaware of the causes of Myofascial Pelvic Pain. In fact, many providers don’t know the condition exists at all.
Pelvic pain is a general term used to describe any type of pain in the pelvic region, below the belly button. Pelvic pain can arise from a variety of causes such as menstruation, a prolapsed bladder, urinary incontinence, or diastasis recti.
Pelvic pain may also include sacral pain, which can cause pain in the lower back and pelvic region, particularly during intercourse. There are many causes of pelvic pain and affects up to 20% of the population in the United States, including men and women.
