It is a disease characterized by uterine tissue being outside of the uterus. The most common symptoms of endometriosis are pelvic pain, pain during menstrual period, pain during sexual intercourse and infertility. The most common cause of pain caused by endometriosis is nerve compression.
In endometriosis, the endometrium (uterine tissue) has the ability to produce its own estrogen. Estrogen stimulates nerve growth around the uterine tissue (endometrium) which developed outside the uterus and triggers pain caused by nerve compression.
In addition, the activity of the pelvic floor muscles is increased in these patients. This causes trigger point formation and pain in the pelvic floor muscles.
A significant improvement in symptoms can be achieved with pelvic floor rehabilitation to be applied in addition to the necessary hormone therapy. The pelvic floor rehabilitation to be applied includes manual therapy, electrotherapy, relaxation techniques and exercise.
