Treatment for Pelvic Pain & Sexual Dysfunction
Approximately 20% of women experience pelvic pain and as many as 60% have experienced painful intercourse. This kind of pain can occur as a result of pregnancy or following delivery. Other causes include pelvis instability, endometriosis, history of bacterial or viral infection, post-surgical scarring, tightness of the vaginal opening or tension in the pelvic floor muscles; sometimes the onset can be spontaneous without any attributable cause. Additionally, as women age, hormonal changes can cause thinning of the vaginal wall, decreased circulation and muscle atrophy, all of which can lead to pain during sex.
In each of these instances, care from an experienced Pelvic Floor Therapist can make all the difference. Using a combination of soft-tissue mobilization techniques, biofeedback, exercises to relax and stretch or strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, modalities to promote circulation, botanicals for relief of pain and tension, extensive education, and emotional support the body can be prompted to heal itself and you can resume a normal, active life.
