Rectal Dilators for Pain after Radiation


Rectal dilators can be a game-changer for treating rectal pain, radiation fibrosis due to pelvic cancer radiation, or pain with backdoor play.

Thanks to Dr. Alex Hill (@oncopelvicPT) for the overview below! 

Remember to consult with a qualified pelvic floor therapist for individualized support and guidance.






Rectal Dilators

Many find success using rectal dilators for constipation, fissures, fecal incontinence, complications from Crohn’s Disease/IBD, and painful anal intercourse. Those with anal stenosis or scar tissue following cancer treatment (chemotherapy, radiation, surgery) for anal, colon, ovarian, uterine, cervical, vulvar, and sometimes breast cancer also find treatment with a rectal dilator useful.Pelvic Wands


Pelvic Wands

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