Case Report: Physical Therapy Intervention for Peyronie Disease as a Missing Link for Female Dyspareunia

February 27, 2020 • Pelvic Health • Jennifer Stone

EIM pelvic health and advanced pelvic health program director, Jennifer Stone, PT, DPT, OCS, PHC, had a new case report published in the January/March 2020 issue of the Journal of Women’s Health Physical Therapy.

The case report looked at the care of a male patient with Peyronie disease to address his female partner’s recalcitrant dyspareunia.

Here are some key takeaways:

  • Clinical findings included soft tissue restrictions in the abdomen and penis as well as limitations in hip mobility bilaterally.
  • Treatments used included soft tissue mobilization, hip joint mobilization, ultrasound, hip stretching, and penile traction stretching.
  • Both the patient and his partner reported significant improvements in penile mobility, disappearance of the penile curve, and pain-free sexual encounters.
