What causes abdominal and pelvic pain?
There are many possible causes. The cause of your pain could be anything from an infection (like a urinary tract infection) to an issue with a bone in the area. To narrow down the cause, think about where the pain occurs and how long it’s been occurring.
Generally, abdominal and pelvic pain occurs primarily in the lower abdomen area, and it may be steady or come and go. It may be sharp and stabbing in a specific spot. Sometimes the pain is serious and the condition causing it may be life-threatening. If this is the case, it’s necessary to call 911. If the pain isn’t especially serious but has been continuing for over 3 months, then this is chronic pain that should be treated professionally.
What are the treatments for abdominal and pelvic pain?
If your pain has been lasting over 3 months, then we can likely help you here at Modern Pain Management. What we do is professional pain management which can help you mitigate or sometimes even eliminate your pain. Also, we want to make sure your treatments are minimally invasive at worst. The treatments we provide are minimally invasive interventional ones like:
- Abdominal trigger point injections – To treat painful areas of muscle that have trigger points. An injection may be an anesthetic, a mixture of anesthetics, or a corticosteroid.
- Ultrasound-guided TAP block – A common analgesic method after surgery involving the wall of the abdomen.
- Splanchnic/celiac plexus block – This can either diagnose or reduce abdominal pain that’s caused by a condition like cancer or pancreatitis. One of these blocks can reduce pain signals from organs in the abdomen.
- Spinal cord stimulator – An implanted device that offers a patient pain relief with electrical spinal cord stimulation. The implant procedure is relatively simple for the patient.
- Intrathecal pain pump – Another implant that delivers pain medicine to relieve chronic pain or pain caused by cancer.
What should I do about abdominal and pelvic pain?
Remember, if your symptoms are life-threatening or possibility life-threatening, you must call 911. But if your symptoms are not life-threatening and are chronic, we can help you at our clinic. Because abdominal and pelvic pain can be difficult to self-diagnose, professional care is necessary, and you should have a consultation with a proper professional like a pain management specialist.
