Pelvic Pain from ligament instability
This article will refer to pelvic pain caused by ligament and soft tissue instability.
At Caring Medical, we frequently find patients with chronic pelvic pain have underlying and unresolved ligament laxity.
Numerous ligaments surround the pelvis and help to keep it stabilized. When these ligaments become weak, they are unable to maintain pelvic stability and can cause pain. They may also be tender to palpation (touch). Patients with chronic pelvic pain are frequently tender over the pubic symphysis or sacroiliac joints, often signifying weakened ligament tissue.

Prolotherapy to the pelvis involves a dextrose injection treatment to any of the numerous ligaments that may be weak and causing the pelvic instability. This treatment initiates a mild inflammatory response in the treated pelvic area. D-glucose (also called dextrose) is the normal sugar in the body, and when injected activates the immune system. The body’s normal healing inflammatory reaction boosts the blood flow to the area and attracts immune cells to the weakened or injured ligaments being treated. These cells will cause regeneration and strengthening of the injured areas. Once the ligaments are strengthened, the pelvis becomes stabilized. Referral pain will stop, contracted muscles will relax, and the chronic pelvic pain will abate.
