What is Best for Pelvic Pain? A Pelvic Wand or Dilator?


One of the questions we are asked most is what is better for pelvic pain, the pelvic wand or the vaginal dilators? Well, it depends! And in some cases, both resources may be useful to treat pelvic pain!

Take a look!




Pelvic Wands

Pelvic Wands

Pelvic wands are often used superficially for perineal massage, introitus stretching, and to reach deeper pelvic floor muscles. They are a great option for anyone suffering from Endo/IC pain, tailbone pain, hypertonic muscles, or deep dyspareunia.

Vaginal Dilators

Dilators are best to treat restriction at the vaginal opening, and difficulty with any form of penetration such as from pelvic exams, tampons, or sex. Dilators are often ideal for those with vaginismus, scar tissue, or hypertonic muscles.
