Painful Bladder Syndrome / Interstitial Cystitis
Register

Painful Bladder Syndrome / Interstitial Cystitis:

This pain or discomfort is perceived to be related to the bladder upon filling or often immediately after emptying. Symptoms include urinary urgency with pressure, burning and aching pain along with increased frequency, > 8 times per day, and > 3 months duration.

Associated symmptoms may also include low back pain, sexual dysfunction (pain during sex, pain after sex - termed post-coitus pain). Painful Bladder Syndrome was formerly known as Interstitial Cystitis - a chronic inflammation within the wall or lining of the bladder.

However recent research supports that this is more of a condition of musculoskeletal dysfunction in the pelvic floor muscles, and rarely associated with any true bladder pathology, such as a Hunner's Lesion (which only occurs in less than 8% of cases). As there is no infection present, the frequent rounds of antibiotics that patients are often put on do little to modify a patient's symptoms.

      Femina PT (née Fusion Wellness & Physical Therapy) has honestly changed my life. Before receiving treatment at Femina, I was going to doctor to doctor to try and find the answer to my pelvic pain. It has taken me YEARS to find someone that can help fix this. It wasn't until my gynecologist recommended your clinic that I finally felt relief. My pelvic pain is almost gone, and granted I still have a lot more to work on with Laureen (my PT), my original problem is nearly cured. I am so grateful to...
