HYDERABAD: In a panel discussion on titled ‘Pelvic Pain - Myths and Reality’, experts elaborated on pelvic pain from their perspective and went on to dispel some myths about it.

The panelists comprised of experts such as Dr Rooma Sinha (Gynaecologist), Dr K J Reddy (Orthopaedic), Dr Ravi Andrews (Nephrologist) and Dinaz Vervatwala (Fitness Expert), who shared valuable insights on the subject.

Speaking on the occasion Dr. Rooma Sinha said, “Chronic pelvic pain is a common problem in women, felt either in lower abdomen or in the back which could be associated with cyclical periods or can be present all through the month.

There are a wide variety of conditions that could lead to pelvic pain. If the pain is mild it could be treated with medication, but if it is persistent, lasts for six months or more, or fails to respond to treatment, often difficult to treat, it can be considered as chronic and may need further treatment.”

The experts believe that almost every woman in her life is afflicted of lower back pain at some point or the other.

“Simple measures like sitting properly on a chair, regular exercises like walking, swimming, cycling, taking simple precautions while lifting weights and carrying heavy things will prevent this problem, shared Dr KJ Reddy.
The panelists observed that nearly 75 per cent of women get pelvic pain at some point in their lives.
