    What If Sex Hurts? Interview with Sandy Hilton, PT, DPT
    I recently interviewed Sandy Hilton for the July issue of BossFit Magazine on the topic of sex from a Pelvic Health perspective.

I’ve had the privilege to work one on one with some excellent therapists who are now venturing out on their own with this practice model; but, I can only help so many people at a time that way.
