Endometriosis is a condition that affects women during their reproductive years and causes recurring, often severe, pelvic pain.
The cause is the growth of cells that normally form the lining of your uterus in other areas of your pelvis. These plugs of endometrial tissue swell and bleed during your period just as the uterine lining does, causing pain and cramping.
Because they’re unable to exit your body as normal tissue would, endometrial plugs can form adhesions, sticking organs and tissues together, and scar tissue that makes pelvic pain even worse.
Endometriosis is incurable, but there are two conventional options for treating the condition.
Medication helps manage pain and reduce bleeding, while surgery can remove or destroy the endometrial plugs. However, both options present the risk of side effects.
Triggered Physical Therapy provides a safe alternative with SoLá pelvic therapy that can help ease the pain of endometriosis.
SoLá therapy is a gentle, noninvasive treatment for reducing pelvic muscle spasms.
Your provider at Triggered Physical Therapy administers a series of two- to four-minute treatments over a period of 3-4 weeks that help relax your pelvic muscles, reduce nerve pain, and calm harmful inflammation.
Each SoLá therapy session takes place in the office, where your provider uses a wand or probe to apply healing light energy directly to your pelvic muscles. You may experience a soothing feeling of warmth during your treatment, but no discomfort
Many patients find their endometriosis pain reduces significantly with just a few treatments.
SoLá therapy delivers painless light energy deep into your pelvic muscles via a process known as cellular photobiomodulation. This activating light energy stimulates healing mitochondria within your cells that help your body heal from the inside out.
The light energy SoLá therapy uses releases nitric oxide from your cells to improve blood flow and relax tight muscles, decreases inflammation and the production of pain-signaling cytokines, and soothes hypersensitive pelvic nerves.
The small SoLá therapy probe also uses a gentle massaging technique that encourages the drainage of harmful lymphatic toxins and stimulates oxygen delivery to painful tissues.
