The pelvis is complex. It is central to our health and wellbeing, to movement. Therapeutically it holds particular challenges on many levels, not the least in terms of persistent pelvic pain. Despite its central place in the body, it is a commonly overlooked component of pain and dysfunction not only in the pelvis but also in other parts of the body, such as the shoulders, back, hips, knees and feet. Dysfunction and pain in the pelvis are linked to the rest of the body – physically, physiologically, psychologically, emotionally. Therefore, we cannot view pelvic pain or dysfunction only in relation to the pelvis. The pelvis is part of the body, the body is an individual that is part of a larger social and cultural context, in a specific environment.
We need to treat the pelvis as the complex, dynamic, functional whole that it is.
