Further Outpatient Care

Patients with chronic pelvic pain are generally treated in an outpatient setting and require a variety of health care professionals to optimally manage their condition.

Further Inpatient Care

Hospitalization is not usually required for patients with chronic pelvic pain (CPP); however, the need for hospitalization depends on the invasiveness of the treatment choice for pain control and on the severity of the case.

Patient Education

The patient and the patient's family should have a good understanding about the multifactorial nature of chronic pain. They need multidisciplinary and comprehensive management plans.

Instruct the patient to avoid uncomfortable stressful positions and bad posture. Also recommend regular exercise, good sleeping habits, and balanced meals.

Try biofeedback and relaxation techniques.
