How can pelvic floor PT help with managing symptoms of vaginismus?
Pelvic floor therapy aims to address pelvic floor muscle tension and tightness that is leading to pain and fear of penetration. Your therapist can help start by relaxing the pelvic floor muscles externally and progress to internal pelvic floor muscle treatments as symptoms improve.
Pelvic floor therapists provide hand-on manual treatments, individualized exercises and discuss lifestyle modifications in order to help your body and mind break the cycle of associating penetration with pain.
