We debunk many of the myths around rectal treatment, including:

  • You can access everything vaginally "well enough"

  • We don't do rectal because patients are apprehensive

  • Rectal is "more invasive"

  • If I learn rectal treatment techniques I'll need to treat men

  • Rectal is only for 'obvious' issues like constipation or coccyx pain

Rectal is one of the most overlooked treatment techniques, often because we either aren't comfortable with our own skills or we're not comfortable having a conversation about it with patients.

As Nicole said on the full 'sode of the topic...
