The pelvis is a fascinating and complex region in the lower torso. Sometimes diagnosing the cause of pain is not straight forward but can be extremely challenging for a GP and specialists, but most of all for the person who is experiences  persistent pain.

Bernice's area of expertise is working with patients who have had persistent pelvic pain, she understands how challenging it is not be listened to, how frustrating it feels to seek help going from one practitioner to the next in trying to find an answer and someone who can help.

In 2007 Bernice had the unique opportunity to join WHRIA and over the 12 years gained valuable experience as an acupuncturist managing complex pain conditions. By collaborating with a dedicated team of gynaecologists, pain specialists, endocrinologists, pelvic floor physiotherapists, psychologists and osteopaths, WHRIA was able work offer  holistic, multidisciplinary, innovative and evidence based  treatment to patients around Australia   persistent pelvic pain conditions.   

The multidisciplinary team at WHRIA are leaders in providing excellence in treatment of pelvic pain, their mission is to help women and men who experience  both acute and persistent pelvic pain and offer proper diagnosis and management. Bernice relocated to Canberra in 2019 and brings her acupuncture and Chinese medicine expertise in pelvic pain   to Canberra and its surrounding locality.


Pelvic Pain - Deakin Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine Centre in Deakin, Canberra, Sydney, Rozelle

Pelvic pain is commonly known to be caused by organs in your reproductive, digestive or urinary system. More recently, it has been recognised that some pelvic pain, particularly chronic pelvic pain, can arise from  the muscles and connective tissue (ligaments) within the structures of the pelvis or referred from muscles in the lower torso. Tight muscles can be overlooked in pelvic pain investigation, as they  can cause referred pain  in the pelvic area or lower limbs. Occasionally, pelvic pain might be caused by irritation of nerves in the pelvis.
