Details and patient eligibility


  • Objective: To determine if the tele-rehabilitation program for chronic pelvic pain associated with endometriosis composed of pain education, therapeutic exercise and respiratory control decreases pain according to the Visual Numerical Scale (EVN), catastrophizing with the Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS), kinesiophobia with the Tampa Scale of Kinesiophobia (TSK), improves sexual function according to the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) and QoL compared to the Control Group with the Health Status Questionnaire (SF-12).
  • Follow-up: four evaluated questionnaires: preintervention; postintervention, 3 months postintervention, 6 months postintervention
  • Participants: 66 women diagnosed with endometriosis with chronic pelvic pain in different Spanish endometriosis associations.
  • Randomization: women will be randomly assigned to two groups using the EpiData 3.1 software
  • Interventions: Experimental Group: therapeutic exercise + conscious breathing (16 sessions) and pain education (4 sessions) through the TRAK platform.

Control Group: They will receive informative material in weeks 1, 3, 5 and 7 about their pathology and with recommendations for them to achieve healthy lifestyle habits that do not further damage their disease.

66 participants in 2 patient groups

TeleRehab Group
Experimental group
The duration of treatment for the TeleRehab Group will be 8 weeks and will consist of a total of 20 sessions, with between 2 and 3 sessions per week depending on the week they are in. Weeks 2, 4, 6 and 8 will have 2 sessions per week and weeks 1, 3, 5 and 7 will have 3 sessions per week. These sessions will consist of videos that will make up the educational material, videos that will guide the TE program and respiratory control practices. All the sessions mentioned above will be in online format, through the TRAK platform.
Other: TeleRehab Group
Advices Group
Active Comparator group
They will receive informative material in weeks 1, 3, 5 and 7 about their pathology and with recommendations for them to achieve healthy lifestyle habits that do not further damage their disease. o Participants in the Advices Group will have the same follow-up assessments as the TeleRehab Group and will receive informative material. They will not have access to the audiovisual material generated for the TeleRehabGroup.
