ACUPUNCTURE FOR VULVODYNIA
Acupuncture is a well known treatment for chronic pain, but many may not consider acupuncture for vulvodynia as treatment for vulvar pain. Vulvodynia is a pain condition that affects many women and can severely restrict their quality of life. Activities like tampon insertion, riding a bicycle, or having sex can all be thwarted by pain, making them impossible to do or enjoy.
Acupuncture is a safe, drug-free treatment and can significantly reduce pain. Acupuncture can supplement the biomedical treatment you are already receiving from your doctor, be it a topical cream, oral medication, physical therapy, or counseling.
