It is not uncommon to hear patients reporting having been given trunk/leg/hip exercises and stretching for the purpose of treating vaginismus.
The truth is that vaginal function is independent of spinal/orthopedic status, which makes it a good design for procreation, and thus is ineffective for curing vaginismus.
