Pudendal Neuralgia Treatment Measures
What is Pudendal Neuralgia?
Pudendal Neuralgia is a condition, when the person experiences pain, discomfort, numbness in the perineum or genitals. This usually occurs when the pudendal nerve which supplies these areas is injured due to trauma, get trapped due to any surgical scar around this area or a daily activity of sitting for long periods due to excessive pressure. The pain is inconsistent and can come and go any.
Pudendal Neuralgia treatment is often taken from combined treatments of pelvic floor physiotherapy, lifestyle upgradation, and medicines. A good consultation is required from the pelvic floor physiotherapist for the pudendal neuralgia to be treated.
Your pelvic floor physiotherapist may also give you the checks and tests to be done within a certain period of time along with the treatment. A good revised treatment plan is generated with consistent sessions. Rare cases which don’t improve with pelvic floor physiotherapy require surgery.
