Chronic pelvic pain.


The basic approach to the patient with chronic pelvic pain as practiced at the University of Tennessee, Memphis, has been described here. Using this approach allows the practicing physician to evaluate and manage realistically or refer appropriately most patients with chronic pelvic pain. The key to management of patients who have chronic pelvic pain is to use any and all available diagnostic and therapeutic modalities to identify the source(s) and direct therapy. By having at least a working knowledge of the various diagnostic and therapeutic modalities available to the patient, the individual clinician can better aid the patient in her understanding of chronic pelvic pain, generally, and her own pelvic pain, specifically.
