Many women have experienced lower abdominal pain and lumbosacral pain, a large proportion of whom either do not care or wait for this pain, which has affected the quality of life before taking measures; the result is often physical and mental torture. If a woman has lower abdominal pain or even long-term pain, she must be vigilant and take timely examination because, most likely, chronic pelvic pain has knocked at a door.

In the medical field, pain is often one of the most intuitive symptoms of disease and a major concern for patients. In gynecology, in particular, chronic pelvic pain has become an unspeakable affliction for many women. Although it may not be as widely known as other diseases, the effects of chronic pelvic pain have reached into the daily lives of many women.

Chronic pelvic pain, as defined by the European Urological Association, is a prolonged and persistent pain in the pelvis and its surrounding tissues and organs, more than six months. The manifestations of this pain cover an area from below the umbilicus to above the thighs, covering a fairly wide range of areas. Such a definition allows us to recognize more clearly that chronic pelvic pain is not just a simple pain problem but a combination of symptoms that may be associated with multiple causes and multiple systems.

Symptoms can vary from individual to individual as many causes may affect the pelvic area. Common symptoms include mild to severe pain in the lower abdomen, pelvic cavity, or back, either throughout the lower abdomen, bilaterally or unilaterally in the iliac fossa.

Or with no apparent localization, often accompanied by vaginal discomfort, which is a persistent or intermittent dull or vague pain, cyclic pain, pain during sexual intercourse, and painful urination. In addition, chronic pain can lead to depression, with common symptoms including sleep problems, changes in appetite, feeling empty and uncomfortable, and delayed body movements and reactions.

In short, this pain not only leads to abnormal functioning of the organs of the organism, but more importantly, it also significantly impacts the quality of life of the patient. When a female has to deal with pain in the abdomen daily, probably when she is working, exercising, or even resting, she can not live her life as she used to.

Therefore, female patients who experience chronic lower abdominal pain must take treatment measures as soon as possible to avoid affecting their normal quality of life.

The pathogenesis of chronic pelvic pain is very complex, and the causes of chronic pelvic pain are also very complicated and may originate from the urinary system, the reproductive system, the digestive system, the locomotor system, the neuroendocrine system, and the psycho-psychological aspects. Therefore, there is more than one treatment method.

In terms of medication, patients can choose traditional Chinese medicine to regulate. As a mild treatment without side effects, traditional Chinese medicine regulates chronic pelvic pain from a holistic perspective rather than simply relieving pain. Among them, Fuyan Pill utilizes a complete formula, which is effective in clearing away heat, detoxifying the body, promoting blood circulation, removing blood stasis, invigorating blood circulation, promoting vitality, and relieving pain, thus regulating various parts of the female body to achieve the purpose of reducing pain and eliminating lesions.

Physical therapy is also effective, including manual massage, electrical stimulation, magnetic stimulation, and more.

Manual Massage: Massage is one of the ancient medical methods in China, which can promote blood circulation in local tissues, accelerate lymphatic reflux, promote the absorption of inflammatory mediators, and reduce nonbacterial inflammation and edema around the muscles and bones of the pelvic floor. At the same time, it loosens spastic muscles to restore normal blood flow and normal anatomical position and function.

Electrical Stimulation Therapy: Higher frequency analgesic currents block the transmission of pain signals. Lower-frequency endorphin currents stimulate the pituitary gland to secrete morphine-like peptides to relieve pain.

Magnetic Stimulation Therapy: This kind of body neuromodulation technology can promote muscle contraction, improve blood circulation, and regulate the pelvic floor nerves by stimulating the human body's nerves with a high-energy pulsed magnetic field outside the body.
