Pain Conditions Treated At ARILEX Center for Endometriosis and Pelvic Pain
Endometriosis – A highly manageable condition, endometriosis occurs when the tissue that lines the uterus – endometrial tissue – grows outside of the womb. This tissue can affect the ovaries, fallopian tubes and pelvis area. Endometriosis is similar to cancer in the sense that it is a rapid proliferation of atypical cells that can grow anywhere. Pain due to endometriosis can be severe, especially during menstruation. To learn more about endometriosis pain and the treatments available view our endometriosis page.
Pelvic Pain – If you put your hands on your hips and pull your fingers toward the belly button and draw a line across – everything below refers to pelvic pain. Pelvic pain includes a wide variety of pain conditions that result in mild to severe discomfort. There are many treatments that have proven effective including pelvic floor therapy.

Pudendal Neuralgia – Also referred to as bicyclist syndrome, pudendal neuralgia is when the pudendal nerve (the nerve that runs through your buttocks and into the perineum) becomes damaged or irritated. This can result in chronic pelvic pain. It is a common side effect of child birth that can leave women with vaginal numbness or an increased burning sensation in their vagina.
