Pelvic pain arises from muscle, or other soft tissue imbalances in the pelvic floor.
Physical therapy will address these imbalances. A detailed assessment and partnership with your therapist can bring positive results.
At OSF Rehabilitation, we have specially trained physical therapists who can help determine the cause of the pain. They will work with you to determine your treatment plan.
