Please consult with your doctor or pelvic floor physiotherapist for assessment and management of pelvic pain.

Treatment 1: Unload Your Pelvic Floor

During a flare-up of pelvic pain with tight or hypertonic pelvic floor muscles in spasm, lying down is crucial. When you're upright, the weight of your belly and pelvis puts pressure on the pelvic floor muscles causing them to work harder and prolonged pelvic floor muscle stretch.

The best positions for unloading the pelvic floor and relieving pelvic pain and muscle spasms include lying down on your back with a pillow or side-lying position. Unloading your pelvic floor instantly promotes muscle relaxation and pain relief.

Treatment 2: Heat Therapy

Heat therapy alleviates pelvic pain and relaxes pelvic floor muscles. Applying comfortable heat or warmth to your pelvic floor or lower abdomen can reduce discomfort and relax pelvic floor muscle spasm.

Apply heat for about 15 to 20 minutes at a time.

Lying down and soaking in a warm bath can also promote pelvic floor muscle relaxation and pelvic pain relief.

Technique 3: Diaphragmatic Breathing

Diaphragmatic breathing, or deep breathing exercises are essential therapy for pelvic floor relaxation. You can practice this technique while lying down and using heat therapy.

Diaphragmatic breathing involves taking slow, deep breaths into your belly. As you inhale preferably through your nose, allow your belly to expand outward. Then, exhale slowly through your mouth, feeling your belly relax and deflate. This type of breathing helps relax the pelvic floor muscles and promotes overall relaxation.

Treatment 4: Avoid Aggravating Activities

Resting your pelvic floor includes avoiding activities and exercises that aggravate their pelvic pain.

Therapies to avoid with moderate to severe pelvic pain flareup include:
*Kegel exercises or pelvic floor exercises
*Intense pelvic floor stretches
*Self trigger point therapy or intense muscle release strategies

Treatment 5: Pelvic Pain Medication and Muscle Relaxants

Over-the-counter pain medications like paracetamol or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can help alleviate pelvic pain during a flare-up. It's important to follow the recommended dosage and consult with a healthcare provider before taking any medications.

Muscle relaxants prescribed by a healthcare professional can be helpful for reducing pelvic muscle spasm. These medications should only be taken under professional guidance and supervision.

Be guided by your Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist regarding the best time to recommence pelvic therapy exercises. Professional guidance from a pelvic floor physiotherapist is crucial for managing pelvic pain and pelvicfloor spasm.
