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.

Having never been treated by a physical therapist, I wondered how this really was going to help me. My husband who is a physician was very supportive and agreed that a PT evaluation would be a great idea. So i made the appointment and was blown away by what i learned. I had no idea that pelvic floor muscles could get tight and have...

      I went to Heather after the birth of my third child.  It was lucky, really, that I was referred to her, because my doctor had referred me to a surgeon for a possible hysterectomy or pelvic wall rebuild.  Thankfully, I went to Heather before undergoing either surgery, she was able to fix the problem.  She has studied extensively in women's health--even written a book about it--and was able to diagnose my problem, suggest a course of treatment (6 weeks), and then follow through with said treatment....
