Osteopathic manipulative medicine considerations in pelvic pain

from The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association

From Nov. 6: Chronic pelvic pain is a common, multifaceted presentation seen daily in primary and specialty care offices. While it is a more common presentation in women (15%-20%), it is also reported in 8 percent of men. Chronic prostatitis (CP) or chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) is defined as urologic symptoms and/or pain or discomfort in the pelvic region. Such syndromes may include epididymal pain syndrome, pelvic floor muscle pain, penile pain syndrome, postvasectomy pain syndrome, and prostate pain syndrome. Presenting complaints of CP/CPPS may include penile, testicular, perineal, and lower abdominal pain; pain during or after ejaculation and/or urination; urinary frequency and urgency; sensation of incomplete emptying; and erectile dysfunction. Currently, there are no uniformly accepted treatment regimens, and the pathophysiologic process is not yet understood. (This is a hyperlink to the abstract for this article.
