Healthy sexual function requires physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Physical presentations that may limit sexual activity include decreased mobility, alterations in sensation, decreased genital circulation, and pain. Physical therapists play an important role in facilitating optimal sexual function by providing treatment to restore function, improve mobility, and relieve pain. This article summarizes the theory and practice of physical therapy in sexual health and considers potential new areas for physical therapy intervention.
