Chronic pelvic pain

Chronic pelvic pain needs to be thoroughly investigated.  A specialist doctor e.g. gynaecologist, urologist or pain consultant may recommend physiotherapy as part of a multi discplinary management approach.  It can be attributed to a problem with the nerves or muscles in the pelvic floor.
