Pudendal neuralgia is long-term pelvic pain that originates from damage or irritation of the pudendal nerve – a main nerve in the pelvis.
Pudendal neuralgia is common among cyclists, with complaints of symptoms jumping in the winter months. This is often caused by indoor cycling, since most bikes and trainers do not have variance in pressure that you would experience while cycling outdoors.
Thankfully a combination of pelvic floor therapy and exercises can help alleviate the pain. For more information, please reach out to the Life Therapies team. We’d be happy to help answer your questions.
