Female Pelvic Pain
Pain disorders can be due to pain during penetrative sex or vaginismus that is spasms of a pelvic floor that make it painful to have intercourse.
What happens if the woman is having pain during sex, or she may have hurt while she is putting a tampon in, or any things that involve something being inserted into the vagina.
Painful sex can be treated a myriad of different ways.
Often the pelvic flow or is malfunctioning. Either it is clamped up in a tight high-toned position, or it is not functioning at all. When the pelvic floor is not functioning properly, it can cause pain during sexual relations. So a pelvic floor physical therapy is a common treatment for pain disorders.
Now, muscular pain is widespread. Sometimes just like if you hold your arm in a certain position all the time if you have all kind of tension in there, it is going to hurt all over that area. And that is the kind of pain that women often experience with that high-tone pelvic floor disorder. So pelvic floor physical therapy is a hallmark treatment for pelvic pain disorders.
Also sometimes we need to use medicines to help with the spasms or the pain. Sometimes we use the local treatment right in the vaginal area, and sometimes we use a systemic drug to treat the pain.
We are often able to treat pain disorders, through medications, through pelvic floor physical therapy.
