Physiotherapy as a promoter of sexual health.

Areskoug Josefsson, Kristina LU and Gard, Gunvor LU (2015) In Physiotherapy Theory and Practice 31(6). p.390-395
Abstract
Despite the holistic intention of physiotherapy, sexual health receives insufficient attention by physiotherapists. Sexual health is an important part of general health and well-being, which is often negatively affected by physical and psychological disorders. There are several reasons why sexual health should be addressed by physiotherapists, and this article aims to describe the role of the physiotherapist as a promoter of good sexual health and implementation of sexual health in clinical physiotherapy.
