Physical Therapy for Sexual Dysfunction
Sexual health and pelvic floor therapy are closely related, as the pelvic floor muscles play an important role in sexual function. The pelvic floor muscles support the organs of the pelvis, help control bladder and bowel function, and are also involved in sexual arousal and orgasm.
Pelvic floor therapy can be beneficial for individuals experiencing sexual dysfunction, such as:
- pain during intercourse
- difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection
- difficulty reaching orgasm
Pelvic floor therapy involves exercises to strengthen or relax the pelvic floor muscles, as well as education on positioning and techniques that can help reduce pain or improve sexual function.
Pelvic Floor Therapy also helps improve overall sexual health and well-being, which includes improving body awareness and mindfulness, and addressing anxiety or stress related to sexual function.
Sexual dysfunction is a complex and multifaceted issue, and may involve physical and psychological factors. A holistic approach that addresses all of these factors is the most effective in improving sexual health and function.
