Chronic pain is sometimes an outcome of certain urologic conditions. Pain management services, integrated with urologic care, can be helpful, and The Urology Group is committed to helping our patients explore a variety of techniques to provide relief.
As a result, The Urology Group may refer you to a pain specialist for consultation and treatment. These healthcare professionals coordinate care with your urologist but operate as separate providers. Pain management programs are aligned with The Urology Group treatment for a seamless experience for patients.
Treatment may include interventional pain procedures, such as injections or an epidural to numb the area, allowing nerves to "settle down" and prevent sending pain signals to the brain. These treatments can result in overall pain reduction. Some treatments require light anesthesia and may be performed in The Urology Center's outpatient surgery facility.
Pain from pelvic floor disorders can sometimes be relieved through physical therapy.
Kathleen Novicki, PT, PRPC, and the therapists at The Center for Pelvic Floor and Core Rehabilitation, are regional experts in the field of pelvic physical therapy with specialty certifications in Manual Therapy and Pelvic Rehabilitation.
Therapy may involve biofeedback, exercise, manual therapy, behavioral training, ultrasound or TENS. Physical therapy is available at The Urology Group's Norwood Campus and at several other convenient locations and hours in the greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area.
