  Title Mechanically induced pelvic pain and organic dysfunction in a patient without low back pain [case report]
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 1990 Sep;13(7):406-411
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Previous reports have identified mechanical disorders of the lumbar spine as a cause of pelvic pain and organic dysfunction (PPOD) in patients with low back pain. Less common however, are reports of mechanically induced pelvic pain and organic dysfunction in patients without accompanying low back pain. This report details the examination findings and treatment response of a patient with pelvic pain, organic dysfunction and clinical evidence of lower sacral nerve root compression (LSNRC) in whom low back pain was not an accompanying finding. Despite the absence of low back pain however, clinical evaluation revealed the characteristic findings of mechanically induced pelvic pain and organic dysfunction secondary to lower sacral nerve root irritation or compression as a result of a mechanical disorder of the low back. As in long standing cases of mechanically induced pelvic pain and organic dysfunction in which low back pain is present, this case also exhibited severe and widespread involvement of the pelvic organs. In spite of numerous failed attempts at treatment directed at the symptomatic component of the patients disorder, complete resolution of symptoms was achieved by manipulative treatment directed at the mechanical disorder of the lumbar spine.
