Our sexuality is an intimate and private part of our lives. Messages from media, friends, and partners combined with complicated cultural and societal norms come together to form our assumptions about sex. It is something we don’t often freely discuss. This is especially true when bits and pieces aren’t working how they should.
Sexual dysfunction can be a difficult topic to broach with health providers. Understandably, the sterile lights, thin walls, and chaos of a doctor’s office can discourage an already sensitive topic.
That is why we created Entropy Physiotherapy. We have created a warm, welcoming space that invites dialogue about sexuality. The truth is many men AND women suffer from sexual dysfunction. We recognize this and it is something we address daily here at Entropy!
So how can physical therapy help you to regain your sex life?
The definition of sexual dysfunction is broad, and there are many different factors that may be impacting your sexual function. Emotional, hormonal, physical and psychological influences can all impact your sexual function.
We understand you may be surprised to know that physical therapy works with people just like you who for one reason or another aren’t experiencing sex in the way that they should. A physical therapy treatment with Sarah or Sandy will include an assessment of the pelvic muscles. We are confident that we can help you to restore normal muscle function by identifying, relaxing, and retraining any muscles or groups of muscles that are short, tight, in spasm or otherwise not behaving nicely.
