The project investigates the situation of patients with chronic pelvic and chronic belly pain before and after our group therapy.


To treat patients with chronic pelvic and belly pain in an interdisciplinary way, we developped a group therapy consisting of twelve sessions and a booster session. The therapy is based on the bio-psycho-social model of pain and includes group sessions of psychotherapy as well as physiotherapy.

All patients fill in questionnaires (concerning pain impact, pain chronicity, depression, anxiety, stress, well-being and sexuality) before and after the therapy as well as three and twelve months after.
