The Pelvic Myofascial Wand is used for internal massage for addressing painful myofascial trigger points and alleviating pelvic pain. Using a pelvic floor wand can be an important component of what physical therapist’s do when treating pelvic floor muscle dysfunction and pelvic pain. Treatment would focus on resolving the myofascial trigger points, resolving pain, and restoring function. A physical therapist can directly find tender points or myofascial trigger points (areas of tight muscles that can refer pain to other areas) in the pelvic floor area.
Treatment often consists of advanced myofascial release techniques including intravaginal or intrarectal (internal) massage. An important part of your therapy may be instruction in a home exercise or massage program. Rehab and self-massage devices that help apply direct pressure to self-release the trigger points are employed.
The use of a pelvic myofascial wand in home therapy may also be combined with relaxation techniques and deep breathing to calm the nervous system which could be in a flight or fight pattern causing a cycle of stress and related pain.
The Pelvic Myofascial Wand is a highly regarded therapeutic manual massage product. The Pelvic Myofascial Wand was designed with input from physical therapists for alleviating pain and discomfort from pelvic pain and chronic pelvic pain syndrome. The brilliant curves and release ends of the Pelvic Myofascial Wand allow the user to easily locate tight, tender or painful trigger points, muscles and fascia within the pelvic floor. The Pelvic Myofascial Wand enables the user to control the exact amount and location of pressure applied providing effective pain and discomfort relief.
