Pain During Sex and how Pelvic Floor Physical Therapists can Help - Special Guest Dr. Brooke Kalisiak
Sex feels great. Your body hums with energy, your mind reels with pleasure, and you feel bliss in its purest form. But what if it hurts? You probably won't be as excited to get back in the ring if you know it will only lead to pain. Many women suffer from pain during intercourse, known as Dyspareunia, and this can make women avoid, reduce the frequency, or outright stop having sex. Luckily, there are people that can help. Some physical therapists help you get your shoulder back in working order. Our guest in this episode works with women to revitalize their sex life by reducing pain with exercises and other therapies.
