Vulvodynia Pain Management with Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM)
What is Vulvodynia?
Vulvodynia is chronic pain or discomfort around the opening of vagina (vulva). In some cases the condition can last for three months and longer without any evidence of skin or gynecological conditions.
At Integrated Bodywork we use Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) for Vulvodynia pain management.
If you have Vulvodynia and symptoms associated with Vulvodynia, FSM is very effective to help relieve your vulvodynia symptoms based on clinical trials.
Causes of Vulvodynia
Although there is no simple answer to the question “What causes vulvodynia?”, there are possible causes which include:
- Injury to or irritation of the nerves surrounding your vulvar region
- Allergies or sensitive skin
- Hormonal changes
- Muscle spasm or weakness in the pelvic floor, which supports the uterus, bladder and bowel
It is also known what not cause Vulvodynia which include:
- HPV, other sexually transmitted diseases
- Cancer or generalized neurologic disorders.
Vulvodynia can only be diagnosed after other causes of vulvar pain, such as infection, dermatitis or atrophy have been ruled out.
Women with vulvodynia often report having one or more of the following symptoms in the vulvar area:
- Burning (most common symptom)
Vulvodynia pain might be constant or occasional. It might occur only when the sensitive area is touched. In some cases the pain might be in the entire vulvar area (generalized), or localized to a certain area.
Complications from having Vulvodynia
Because having vulvodynia is painful and frustrating, the condition can keep you from wanting sex. It may even cause fear of having sex, as a result of this fear spasms in the muscles around your vagina (vaginismus) may occur. Vulvodynia can also cause emotional problems. Complications from Vulvodynia might include:
- Sleep disturbances
- Sexual dysfunction
- Altered body image
- Relationship problems
- Decreased quality of life
There are treatments available to provide symptom relief. These may include a combination of advice on vulvar skin care, oral and/or topical medications, physical therapy and biofeedback training, dietary modifications, counseling and, in some cases, surgery. Adjunct therapies, such as acupuncture, massage therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy, are also being explored.
