In patient pelvic pain treatment centers?

Hi, Does anyone know if there are in patient pelvic pain treatment centers? So tired of going from doctor to doctor to doctor and want everything looked at at once, ie: nerve blocks, diagnostics, peripheral nerve exams, alternative modalities, etc.

Does this exist anywhere?

There is a clinic in Northern California that treats this. I’m attending it in August and I’ve heard it’s quite effective if you’re willing to put in the work.

What is the name of the program in No CA?

I believe he is referring to the headache in the pelvis people. Look up the book and you will be referred to their program

Santa Rosa I believe. It costs like $4500 not including food and accommodations! I did call once. Wrote the doctors too!!!

I’m Canadian. All the doctors do is prescribe medications. I feel they think our pelvic pain is emotion based. NO it’s NOT.

Where is your primary pain? What do you think started it? Explain your sensations and where they are please and thank you.

Do you have any metal hardware from a previous surgery inside your body?

I feel your angst....it’s just so disillusioning that the very educated professionals we see are being paid a lot of money for diagnosing nothing!

Deborah did you do inpatient or outpatient at Cleveland? Did they do all the blocks quickly?

Is Cleveland Clinic In-patient or out-patient only?

I suffered from pelvic floor pain. I am almost 100% cured. I ended up working with a physical therapist, who helped me to control and correct the situation. The 1st element was dealing with stress and my subconscious ( You would be surprised what muscles can tighten themselves when stress or problems occur) . The second step was stretches and yoga positions targeting the pelvic muscles. The third was correctly handling stress and learning the warning signs so I can stop the pain before it starts. It takes a whole lot of breathing and relaxing the muscles. The whole process took time to retrain the muscles but it is working for me. I am currently on 0 pain pills or medications.

I am in WI and I saw a Holistic Physical Therapist.

What types of specialists would you like to see. If our community can come up with such a plan , i am confident we could approach practitioners who would implement it (my PT says she would)

I would say we would need

PTs

Pain doctor

Neurologist with familiarity with pudendal

Spine specialist

Psychiatrist

Acupuncture

Alternative medicine doctor

Radiologist

Other suggestions?

A Urogynecologist and a gastroenterologist would be helpful also:)

Dr. Hibner in Arizona gave me 3 nerve blocks. between those and my current meds, i am virtually pain free! so thankful!!

Hi. I am not sure if you can access such a treatment centre where you live but we do have such places in England (where I am being given treatment and advice) so I am sure there will be such a clinic in USA. Don't give up hope. I find that if I get stressed about ANYTHING then the pain is much worse. Good luck.
