​Chronic pelvic pain is a sensation of pain in the area below your bellybutton and between your hips that lasts six months or longer. Chronic pelvic pain can come from a multiple of causes. It can be a symptom of another disease, or it can be a condition in its own right. If your chronic pelvic pain appears to be caused by another problem, be it medical or mechanical, treating that problem is often enough to eliminate the pain. However, in many cases it's not possible to identify a single cause for chronic pelvic pain. Which means you move into the area of managing the symptom and trying to chase the cause of the issue.

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction =

  • Disorders of the Bladder

  • Disorders of the Bowel

  • Sexual Dysfunction

  • Pelvic (Vulvar) pain


“Musculoskeletal Dysfunctions, often contribute to the signs and symptoms of Chronic Pelvic Pain (CPP) and in many cases may be the Primary Factor”


When asked to locate your pain, the reaction with chronic pelvic pain is to suggest the whole area rather than pinpoint a specific place. However, chronic pelvic pain may be described in one or more of the following ways:

  • Severe incessant pain

  • Intermittent Pain that switches on and off but never goes

  • A continuous Dull aching

  • Sharp stabbing pains or deep inner ‘cramping’

  • An internal Pressure or weight that compresses the pelvis

Other experiences can be:

  • Pain before, during and after Sexual Intercourse

  • Pain while going through a normal bowel function or urinating moment

  • Pain and itching when you're sitting, standing or lying for long periods of time

The pain can be both mild and annoying, or it may be so severe that you cannot wear underwear or jeans, nor work, nor sleep or do physical exercise.

Chronic Pelvic pain can bring many other potential symptoms such as…

1.     Bladder Pain, Frequency

2.    Vulvodynia, Vestibulitis

3.    Pudendal Neuralgia,

4.    Vaginismus, Dyspareunia

5.    Levator Ani Syndrome

6.    Pelvic Floor Tension Myalgia (PFTM)

7.    Coccygodynia

8.    Clitordynia -

9.    Endometriosis

10.  Fibromyalgia

11.   Urinary Symptoms – Interstitial Cystitis/PBS

12.  Bowel Symptoms – Bowel Disorder(IBS, Colitis, etc)

13.  Sexual Symptoms -Hypoarousal Disorder/Hyperarousal Disorder

14.  Emotional Symptoms – Post Surgical/Scar Adhesions

Treating Male & Female Pelvic Pain with the CiONE Methodology.

It  is important to know that the CiONE procedure - a non-invasive treatment - supplied in both the Harley Street, London and the Loughborough, Midlands, Clinics – has successfully and on a regular basis – given huge relief through the ‘Japanese’ techniques of “Amatsu’,  BiO-fascial/BiOPelvic Releases, Biomechanical realignment and or physical therapy. Our aim is rehabilitate and lengthen the short, contracted muscles of the pelvic floor/hip joint and to calm the overall arousal of the nervous system.

We consider and encourage - in addition to the CiONE methodology the following:

Seven Main 'Drivers' for Pelvic Pain

  1. The Myofascial connective tissue spasm – which in turn effects the ‘Intrinsic’ and ultimately the ‘Global’ muscle groups.

  2. Aggressive “Plantar flexed” posture/skeletal dysfunction ie; an anterior tilted and/or torsional pelvis – causing poor posture and dysfunctional dynamic movement.

  3. “Paniculosis” building up within the facia of these global muscles – sometimes known as ‘Crepitus/Knots/Lumps’ etc.

  4. The Linea Alba tightening between the Solar Plexus and the Urethra/Pubic Bone – causing Visceral tensions.

  5. “Pelvic Paniculosis’ - building up in a ‘multi-layer’ manner around the Groin, Levator Ani and Bowel areas.  The Paniculosis is a ‘microscopic’ build-up within the fascia, around the nerve endings - which temporarily prevents the fascia from moving, creating restriction that stop the nerves from “sliding and gliding” – Hence causing pain and inflammation.

  6. ‘Diaphragm Paniculosis’ – building up under the breast plate and around the ‘condyles’ of the rib cage, causing breath restrictions and tenderness to Ribs,/breast/chest.

  7. ‘Coccyx Trauma’ – usually from a fall, trip, crash or post-surgery trauma - enough to bring the skeleton into dynamic restrictions or through the Coccyx irritating – (once displaced) - Gemelus Inferior, which in turn can create potential irritation and impingements on the Sciatic and more importantly the Pudendal nerve.
