Treatments for Female Sexual Dysfunctions
We treat a variety of pelvic pain issues, including female sexual dysfunctions such as vaginismus, vulvodynia, vestibulitis, and more.
Pelvic floor muscles are very important in the physiology of the female sexual response. Physical therapists play an important role in the multidisciplinary team when dealing with sexual dysfunctions.
