Provoked Vestibulodynia: Complex Regional Pain Syndrome of the Vulval Vestibule?

Ms Jane Bowering, Physiotherapist and PhD Candidate University South Australia

This PhD investigates a theory that pelvic pain, and particularly provoked vestibulodynia (vulval pain) is a complex regional pain syndrome(CRPS) – like condition of the pelvis.

Our hope is through using CRPS paradigms, we will discover more about the cause, development and course of Provoked Vestibulodynia. In particular, we will investigate the inflammatory properties of this condition.

This project is currently enrolling participants, and there are loads of benefits in being involved.

If you live in Adelaide and have vulval pain, we’ll have a link up soon.
