The Treatment of Pelvic Pain Across the Gender Spectrum

Restoring Hope

Pelvic pain is a global problem affecting people across the gender spectrum through a limitation of quality of life, a loss of pleasure, and often a loss of hope for recovery. This session will outline the interdisciplinary options for taking advantage of current pain science as a framework to identify persons with pelvic pain and design treatment programs to restore optimal function. Evidence for manual therapy, psychosocial interventions, and motivational interviewing are used to describe a treatment model that promotes self-efficacy and can be used in a variety of settings.
