Tightly Wound recently released on Iris!

Tightly Wound has been released, watch it today and share it with your loved ones and anyone else who may need more education on vaginismus and pain with sex.

Tightly Wound is a 15-minute animated short by Shelby Hadden. Our very own Heather Jeffcoat, DPT is one of the producers of film. Check out the video here.

The film follows Shelby’s journey with vaginismus; a condition characterized by involuntary contractions of the pelvic floor muscles including the muscles at the opening of the vagina. These contractions cause pain, problems with penetration, and make intercourse very painful and seemingly impossible.

The film has earned an Honorable Mention at the Nashville Film Festival and has been accepted into numerous film festivals in the US and Europe, including the prestigious Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France.

We love this film! It is one step towards destigmatizing women’s sexual health disorders. Share this film with your medical providers, partners, friends, family, and anyone else who needs more education about vaginismus.

Do you have sexual pain? Pelvic floor therapy can help. 

If you have pain with sex, tampon use, gynecological exams, or another form of penetration, give the therapists at Femina Physical Therapy a call today.

Being born and raised in Armenia and being Christian I wasn't that open about talking to sex with others and so it wasn't easy to seek help. But eventually I went to an Ob-Gyn and luckily she knew about the medical...

    • Testimonial by Jackie W.

      I was in multiple car accidents a decade ago, and I have been to many physical therapists through the years without success. They found the root of my lower back pain problems and after nearly a decade of barely being able to walk I finally can again without pain. They are also the best pelvic floor pts and the only ones who found the connection between my pelvic floor and lower back problems. If you need help with physical pain, they are your answer. -- Jackie W., 1/19/17 via Yelp!
