Genito-pelvic pain and penetration disorders affect 14-34% of young women and 6.5-45% of older women. This impacts a person’s ability to sit, wear certain clothing, participate in daily activities, use a tampon, have intercourse, use the toilet, and have a gynaecological exam like a Pap test. (See one woman’s story.)
Consistently, we see research demonstrating that the brain plays a large role in how we interpret our body’s pain signals. The research we will discuss investigates that relationship with chronic genital pain, and whether women who have genital pain experience looking at pictures of the pelvis differently than women who don’t have genital pain.
May is National Physiotherapy Month and Vida Health & Wellness is showcasing some of Canada’s top professionals. We are excited to host Katie Kelly for Ask a Researcher on May 6, 2020 at 4 pm MDT. Katie will present her research on chronic genital and pelvic pain, and she will be answering your questions.
