Dyspareunia is a common female diagnosis with complaints of pain with both initial and deep penetrative intercourse. Additionally, nearly 1 in 10 men are thought to have Peyronie disease, which has been shown to have a negative impact on partner relationships and limit penetrative intercourse due to pain from one or both partners. In an interview with author Jennifer Stone, PT, DPT, about her most recent work, here’s what she had to say about treating dyspareunia via treatment of the male’s Peyronie’s disease:

“There is very little currently published in the literature regarding ideal physical therapy treatment of Peyronie disease, so this case represents a potential start point for protocol development for this condition. Additionally, there is nothing published by any discipline in the literature regarding treatment of a male partner for the female's dyspareunia, despite the fact that female partner dyspareunia is a well documented impact of Peyronie disease.”

Women’s and pelvic health physical therapists (PTs) play an important role in screening women for endometriosis symptoms, referring for surgical diagnosis, preop and postop care (if surgery is recommended), and reducing pain drivers, endometriosis lesions themselves and common comorbid pain drivers, such as irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, myofascial and musculoskeletal pain, chronic systemic inflammation, and neuroinflammation. PTs play a frontline role in this disease and are the ideal professionals to understanding nutrition for hormone modulation, reducing brain inflammation, reducing general inflammation, and understanding and educating their patients on the relationship between a healthy gut microbiome and endometriosis symptoms. In addition, because the central nervous system plays such a key role in endometriosis symptoms, PTs must also be educated on lifestyle medicine tools, such as sleep support, mindfulness strategies, and environmental impacts on brain inflammation, so they can empower their patients with effective lifestyle strategies to reduce pain and other symptoms.

Hi All, this is Julie Beyer, the #ICDietitian. I just saw another post on another page with the poster saying acidic foods causes acidic urine. I wanted to remind you that isn't really how it works. For most food, acid in makes more alkaline urine; that is basic biochemistry but it doesn't mean it doesn't hurt any less. It also depends on the combination of foods you eat. To learn more about how food can affect an IC bladder read here:

PT Can Prevent Unnecessary Surgery

Recent research is showing that surgery might not be needed as often as we think. A large review estimates that 10% to 20% of surgeries might be unnecessary and that in some specialties such as cardiology and orthopedics, that number might be higher. The reasons for so many unneeded surgeries being performed are varied, but one of the most common is that more conservative options (physical therapy) aren't tried first.

Recent research is showing that certain common surgeries aren't any better than a placebo. Two such examples are kyphoplasty - a procedure for spinal compression fractures, and partial meniscectomy - a procedure used to treat tears of the meniscus in the knee. If a surgeon hasn't continued to learn, they won't know that these surgeries often don't offer any more benefit than a non-surgical treatment and will continue to perform them.

Every surgery, even "minor" ones carry risks. These include complications from anesthesia, blood clots after surgery, delayed healing of the incision, infection, and unintended damage to nerves or other organs near the surgical site. Some of these risks cause discomfort for a period after surgery and go away, but others can result in permanent disability or even death. For some patients and conditions, surgery is a great treatment option, but with all the associated risks, when surgery can be avoided, it should be.

For musculoskeletal problems like back and joint pain, sprains, and strains, seeing your PT before a surgeon can help keep you out of the operating room and get you back to life without surgery. Studies have shown that physical therapy is just as good if not better than surgery for a multitude of conditions and carries less risk. Some examples would include rotator cuff tears, meniscal tears, spinal stenosis, low back pain, and osteoarthritis.

Physical therapy can't fix every problem, and for some patients surgery is the best choice. However, research is showing that surgery isn't a cure-all, and is sometimes just a very expensive and risky placebo. In most cases, starting with physical therapy is the right choice, and for many patients, PT is the only treatment necessary.

Update on the Elmiron study! I had a chance to talk with the principle investigator Dr. Vora today who confirmed that the patients in the study included patients who had used Elmiron for five or more years. (I thought it was 15 or more years). In their study, it showed that 25% of those patients had clear retinal damage associated with Elmiron use. So, this isn't just long term use. They clearly found damage at five years of use. Remember, too, that the early Elmiron study of 2500 patients who used the medication found eye damage at 4 years of use.

Musculoskeletal Dysfunction During Pregnancy and After Childbirth

APTA Academy of Pelvic Health Physical Therapy

Overactive muscles restrict normal blood flow, resulting in a buildup of waste products. This can lead to further irritation, pain, and increased muscle tension. When someone develops pelvic floor pain, this can cause more involuntary tightening or guarding of these muscles, leading to more pain and dysfunction. Relaxation of these muscles can interrupt the pain cycle and promote healing.

Many people have excess muscle tension and do not even realize it. The muscle tension has been there so long that the brain feels it is normal. This can make it difficult to know when these muscles are actually relaxed. A pelvic physical therapist can be very helpful with identifying when these muscles are relaxed and with instruction in techniques to assist with this training.

Did you know that in France, any woman who has delivered a baby automatically gets a prescription for 10 free physical therapy sessions to "re-educate" her pelvic floor? Many women outside of France are not even aware about what the pelvic floor is and what help is available out there. A lack of understanding among young women about the importance of the pelvic floor - which, if weakened during childbirth can cause incontinence - is being linked to problems later in life, according to the latest research.

"On average, 1 in 7 older adults - men and women - experience incontinence, but it's twice as common in women" explains Lisa Smyth, Consultant Urologist at Tallaght University Hospital.

Pelvic Floor Exercise

Pelvic Floor Exercise Tip of the Day:
Does your bladder tell you the truth? Often your bladder will say "quick we have to go NOW! hurry, hurry" , so you run to the loo feeling like you are bursting and when you go there is only a dribble.
This is a classic case of urgency - when the bladder makes you think you are full and need to go but in fact it is not telling the truth! Bladders have been described as unreliable witnesses when you have an overactive bladder. This means it contracts to make you feel as if you need to go now but you don't, so the bladder is not reporting the truth to you.
Bladder training can help with this - once medical causes have been ruled out.


We can't stop time. Or can we? The right type and amount of physical activity can help stave off many age-related health problems.
