Dr. Echenberg & VuVa Vaginal Dilators
Founded in 2001, the Echenberg Institute for Pelvic and Sexual Pain has treated patients for pelvic, genital and sexual pain. Dr. Echenberg has now seen patients (both women and men) from at least 32 different states and from 10 countries outside the US. About 1400 women and men have benefited from Dr. Echenberg's knowledge, diagnostic skills, and unique combinations of non-surgical therapeutic techniques over the past 15 years.
“Since opening my private practice for pelvic and sexual pain disorders in 2006, I have now seen over 1300 women and a growing number of men from over 25 different states, as far away as Hawaii and Florida, and individuals now from at least 7 different countries. The fact that so many come from so far and wide is extremely frustrating for me, because we hear the same theme over and over – and that is - how difficult it has been for them to find health care providers who either know how to diagnose them, take appropriate time to listen to them, or even explain to them some rationale for their complex of symptoms.” – Robert J. Echenberg, MD, FACOG
Dr. Echenberg is announcing a new safe and effective at-home VuVa Magnetic Dilator therapy program to his patients who suffer from painful intercourse and other painful pelvic pain conditions such as dyspareunia, vulvodynia, vulvar vestibulitis, vaginismus and vaginal atrophy due to menopause.
"VuVatech dilators have become the vaginal dilators of choice for my female patients with pelvic, genital and sexual pain disorders. Vulvar pain associated with vestibular sensitivity, which is the most common reason for vaginal entrance pain in reproductive age women, is one of the most common disorders associated with sexual dysfunction and other painful genital problems."
"My increasing experience with patients using VuVa Magnetic Dilators as directed has been very encouraging. The inflammation and muscle clenching accompanying these disorders is often quite challenging and slow to respond to multiple therapies. Many of my patients are now being relieved significantly more quickly and effectively when these magnetic dilators are used regularly along with my other treatments. I would highly recommend all practitioners, including pelvic floor physical therapists, to include VuVatech dilators for their patient's self-help care." – Robert J. Echenberg, MD,

ABOUT VUVA DILATORS
Vuva dilation sets are used to regenerate vaginal capacity, expand the vaginal walls, add elasticity to the tissues, and to allow for comfortable sexual intercourse. VuVa Magnetic Dilators are smooth lightweight plastic, that come in a variety of graduated sizes. In a clinical trial conducted by Chief Investigator and Pelvic Pain Specialist Dr. Michael Swor in Sarasota, FL, it was shown that VuVa Neodymium Magnetic Dilators reduced pain in 80% of study subjects with no side effects reported. Neodymium Magnets are within each dilator that increase blood flow and relieve sexual discomfort while soft tissue lengthens, relaxing muscles and ligaments. As the tissue relaxes, the Neodymium magnets increase blood flow to the painful area calming nerves. VuVa™ Dilators are the only patented dilators available with Neodymium magnets.
Medical conditions that may warrant the use of vaginal dilators include, vulvodynia, vaginismus, vaginal agenesis, menopause, vaginal atrophy, vulvar vestibulitis, and vaginal stenosis. Vaginal dilators are also needed after pelvic radiation therapy.

WHY USE VUVA DILATORS?
According to Physicist Rongjia Tao of Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Medical Physicist Ke Huang of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, during their research in 2011, the magnetic effect all comes down to hemoglobin, the iron-based protein inside red blood cells. The researchers discovered that just one minute subjected to the magnetic field was enough to reduce the bloods viscosity level by 20% to 30%, allowing blood to flow more freely aiding the body's natural healing process. The blood circulatory system delivers nutrients and oxygen to all cells in the body. According to Cleveland Clinic, decreased blood flow deprives the nerve cells of oxygen, causing nerve damage and and pain.
A magnetic field provides a natural way to assist the body’s normal healing processes as fresh oxygenated blood passes through tissue and cells calming nerves. This allows for muscle relaxation. Neodymium is a rare earth metal and a special material: Combined with iron and boron it creates the currently strongest permanent magnets in the world.
To improve sexual health, our therapy sets have helped improve women's health for thousands over many years. Female sexuality and sexual function - that is, pain-free intercourse - can improve drastically when used only a few times per week. Simply insert the vaginal dilator inside the vagina (choose the right dilator size, comes in sets of 5). Can also be an adjunct to pelvic floor muscle physical therapy.
Dilator therapy with our approved graduating sizes has been recommended by doctors across the US. And we'll soon be releasing a new line of silicone dilators. View product details above for our magnetic vaginal dilator sets as well as our smooth non-magnetic sets. Both come with a vaginal moisturizer for easy application.
As with all health conditions, consult with your healthcare professional with all issues relating to sexual activity.
