Endometriosis Pain

At Greencare, we specialise in treating the pain caused by endometriosis.

According to the Australian Department of Health and Aged Care, endometriosis affects at least one in 9 females in Australia. 

Symptoms of endometriosis can vary in severity and may include pain such as pelvic pain, pain in the back and hip areas, and painful periods.

Endometriosis can start at a person’s first menstrual period and last until menopause, and can cause moderate to severe pain throughout this period of time.

What are the traditional treatments for the pain caused by endometriosis?

Traditionally, treatment for the pain cause by endometriosis includes pain management with over-the-counter or prescription medications, hormonal therapy to suppress ovulation and reduce estrogen levels, and surgery to remove or destroy the endometrial tissue. In severe cases or when fertility is a concern, a hysterectomy or removal of the ovaries may be recommended.

Are there alternative treatment options for managing the pain caused by endometriosis?

If you are experiencing pain caused by endometriosis and have tried other pain management methods that haven’t worked for you, we encourage you to seek medical advice and speak with one of our practitioners. 

After assessing your individual needs, our practitioners will determine if alternative treatments are suitable for you.
