Chronic or persistent pelvic pain affects 1 in 7 women. It's often associated with other comorbidities, including depression and anxiety, and with other pelvic floor symptoms, including urinary urgency and incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and bowel symptoms, such as irritative voiding, fecal incontinence, and constipation. In chronic pelvic pain, the musculoskeletal system is typically involved as a victim, a culprit, or both, yet it may not be considered in diagnosis and treatment.

This two-part webinar series will explore advances in our understanding of diagnosis and treatment of female pelvic pain. In part 1, conversations with expert medical providers, including a gynecologist, a urogynecologist, a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist, a pain medicine specialist, a mental health provider, a physical therapist, and an occupational therapist, will highlight how it takes a village of medical and clinical providers to comprehensively treat and manage this disabling condition.

In part 2 (coming soon!), we'll explore the interdisciplinary care of women with chronic pelvic pain through a series of case studies. Physical and occupational therapists working with women, primarily in outpatient rehabilitation settings as well as other care settings, will gain skills and knowledge of their role in treating pelvic pain and how the interdisciplinary team supports the care of women with pelvic pain.
