Pelvic Pain Treatment with Pelvic Physical Therapy



"For years, I struggled with vaginal pain and anxiety around intercourse and gynecological exams.  Primary care doctors and OB/GYNs often told me to "just relax" or "have a glass of wine," which was very frustrating!  I knew that I needed more help than that.  Finally, a new gynecologist referred me to Daphna for pelvic floor rehabilitation therapy, and this referral and my physical therapy with Daphna was truly life-changing.  Working through my pain and anxiety was hard, but her patience, encouragement, and problem-solving attitude helped me to overcome these challenges.  Even on weeks when I felt like I had accomplished very little, Daphna helped me to see how far I had come and gave me hope to keep working at it.  Now, after consistent PT for a year, I can honestly say that I am pain and anxiety free, and I am incredibly thankful for Daphna's support to get to this place."      - KC
