What is Sexual Dysfunction?

Sexual dysfunction is a problem that an individual experiences during any phase of the sexual response cycle that prevents that person, or the couple, from experiencing pleasure or satisfaction from the activity. The sexual response cycle consists of excitement, plateau, orgasm, and resolution, with desire and arousal being part of the excitement phase. Both women and men can experience sexual dysfunction at any age, although it is most common in people over middle age. Sexual dysfunction is generally classified into four categories: desire disorders, arousal disorders, orgasm disorders and pain disorders. Desire disorder is the lack or sexual desire or interest, arousal disorder is the inability to become physically aroused during sexual activity, orgasm disorder is the delay or absence of climax, and pain disorder is the experience of pain during intercourse.


  • The inability to achieve orgasm, also known as anorgasmia.
  • Insufficient vaginal lubrication both before and during intercourse. This if often a factor in the inability to become aroused for women.
  • Inadequate vaginal muscle relaxation to allow for intrecourse.
  • Lack of interest or desire for sex and sexual activities.
  • Pain during intercourse.


  • Erectile dysfunction or the inability to achieve and/or maintain an erection for intercourse.
  • Inhibited ejaculation which causes the absence or delay of ejaculation despite adequate sexual stimulation.
  • Premature ejaculation which is the inability to control the timing of ejaculation occurring before or soon after penetration.
  • Lack of interest or desire for sex and sexual activities.

How Chiropractic Treatment can Help Sexual Dysfunction

Chiropractors focus on improving subluxations by restoring the spine to its proper position thus relieving any pressure, pain or other symptoms caused by it. The spinal cord, along with the brain, makes up the central nervous system. The nervous system is responsible for every function in your body, both conscious and subconscious. However, when subluxations place pressure on the nerves in the spine, they affect the proper signaling between the nerves, the brain and organs. This can severely impact the body’s ability to function properly such as during intercourse. The lower back houses many nerves that extend into the reproductive regions. Addressing subluxations in this lumbar region allows for proper nerve flow to sexual organs, improving such things as blood flow, sensation and muscle functioning. The flow of signals is also improved to the brain, allowing for better hormone production, arousal and stimulation.
