  • Overview

    Treatment of pelvic pain is often handled by a gynecologist. The most successful approach to treating pelvic pain and dyspareunia may be a team approach. Judith Florendo, the Midwest regional representative in the women's section of the American Physical Therapy Association, joins host Dr. Lauren Streicher to discuss how pelvic physical therapists determine treatment for the problem. It begins with a complete medical history, and may include ultrasound, biofeedback, internal exams of the pelvis and electrical stimulation. The two also look at the significant increase in quality of life following treatment and the length of treatment for women with pelvic pain.
