Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) physicians, also known as physiatrists, treat a wide variety of medical conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons....all of which are closely tied to many conditions associated with pelvic health.
At CHI Health, we have a wide range of medical providers who are capable of treating any condition affecting a person’s quality of life. Our physiatry team focuses on musculoskeletal factors, realizing that hip and pelvic musculoskeletal/orthopedic conditions are often misdiagnosed and/or underdiagnosed. Oftentimes, multiple conditions go hand-in-hand (ie pelvic floor issues, hip abnormalities, tendon abnormalities, etc.).
Some important factors to consider:
- A proper physical examination is essential.
- Musculoskeletal ultrasound is a very useful adjunctive diagnostic and therapeutic tool.
- We offer various diagnostic injections, therapeutic injections, nerve hydro-dissections, nerve blocks, tendon sheath injections, etc.
- Pelvic floor and hip/pelvic issues in athletes (both males and females) are common.
If you are experiencing pain or musculoskeletal dysfunction in any area of the body, it may be that seeking a consultation with a PM&R specialist is your best first stop. Call our pelvic health navigator at (402) 717-7358 (PELV) to see if this is the right answer for you.
