Provoked vestibulodynia is the most common subtype of chronic vulvar pain. This highly prevalent and debilitating condition is characterized by acute recurrent pain located at the entry of the vagina in response to pressure application or attempted vaginal penetration. Physical therapy is advocated as a first-line treatment for provoked vestibulodynia but evidence supporting its efficacy is scarce.
