The doctor may also recommend specific procedures for the treatment of chronic pelvic pain. These may include:

Physical therapy: Exercises, massage, and other relaxation techniques may improve chronic pelvic pain.

Neuro-stimulation: It involves implanting a device that blocks nerve pathways so that the pain signal cannot reach the brain.
