Pudendal Neuralgia

What treatments are available for pudendal neuralgia?

Many physicians suggest using a step-ladder approach to therapy for individuals with pudendal neuralgia. Physical therapy with professionals who specialize in pelvic floor therapy is often the first line of treatment. Electrical stimulation and biofeedback have been used to assist therapists with treatment. Patients are also given exercises and lifestyle modifications to use at home. For muscle spasms that are not responsive to physical therapy, botulinum toxin has been used in some cases. Medications such as gabapentin, pregabalin, cyclobenzaprine, and tricyclic antidepressants have also been used in the treatment of patients with PN. In some cases, treatment may include nerve blocks, electrical stimulation of the lower end of the spinal cord, or surgery to remove tissues that might be pressing on the pudendal nerve.
