DYSPAREUNIA

Personalized Care

Dyspareunia is painful penetration, including intercourse, tampon use, or gynecological examinations. This diagnosis is very commonly treated in pelvic health physical therapy due to pelvic floor muscle tension/tightness contributing to painful penetration. FunctionSmart provides a safe environment for treatment of dyspareunia. Treatment may consist of internal and/or external manual techniques with consent to release muscle tension, an individualized strengthening and stretching program to address muscle imbalances contributing to your symptom presentation, relaxation exercises to manage and alleviate your pain, and education regarding sexual and pelvic health to improve your quality of life.
