Pelvic health is a little-talked-about but critical component of a person’s overall health and well-being. Thousands of people live with specific pelvic health conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or endometriosis. Someone is considered to have chronic pelvic pain if they experience over six months of pain coming and going with no improvement with treatment. Chronic pelvic pain may occur because of inflammation or direct irritation of nerves caused by injuries. Conditions like endometriosis and menstrual disorders can lead to difficulties around pregnancy and childbirth.
Pelvic health abnormality of any kind can have dramatic negative impacts on a person’s quality of life, and effective treatments for these conditions are often limited or come with harsh side effects. Acupuncture is an ancient healing method that can address the underlying causes of many pelvic health issues while managing symptoms, facilitating improved quality of life.
How can acupuncture help?
Acupuncture has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years, providing healing to common medical ails across generations. Here are some of the common ways acupuncture is used to promote pelvic health and address pelvic health conditions:
Acupuncture can help alleviate pelvic pain by promoting the release of endorphins, which are natural pain-relieving chemicals in the body. It may be beneficial for conditions such as pelvic floor dysfunction, endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, and chronic pelvic pain syndrome.
Acupuncture relaxes tight muscles in the pelvic area, which can benefit conditions like pelvic floor muscle dysfunction and hypertonic pelvic floor.
Acupuncture regulates hormone levels, which can benefit menstrual irregularities, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and hormonal imbalances affecting pelvic health.
Improved blood circulation
Acupuncture improves blood flow to the pelvic organs and tissues, promoting healing and supporting overall pelvic health.
Acupuncture has been shown to have a calming effect on the nervous system, helping to reduce stress and anxiety. Since stress can contribute to pelvic health issues, managing stress levels through acupuncture may be beneficial.
