What is the difference between the LA and V-Wand?

Each PelviWand has two release-ends™.

  • The V-WAND® has a thicker overall diameter and does not contain the ‘balls’ end. Its two release-ends™ include an opposable thumb shape and a finger tip like end.
  • The LA-WAND® has a slightly overall thinner diameter and a longer length. The two release-ends™ include a ‘balls’ end and a gently tapered end. The end with the balls is often used as a handle.
About the Pocket-Wand

The Pocket-Wand’s convenient size and shape allows for its easy portability, which means you can take it with you anywhere! For your on-the-go needs, a highly renowned physical therapist suggests elevating one leg while inserting the pocket-wand (i.e in a restroom) to obtain quick relief wherever you may be. Please see our instructional videos as well as our instructional brochures for more information. We always recommend seeing a healthcare practitioner for individualized instruction on using our products.

Unique use of Wands for supporting a prolapse during a bowel movement by Elizabeth Makous, the Pelvic Whisperer

Pelvic floor physical therapists often encounter pelvic pain patients that have constipation and/or extreme difficulty emptying their bowels. Many times a complication or cause of this is rectal prolapse. These individuals typically find themselves trying to support their pelvic floors with a whole hand or by placing their fingers in their vaginas while having a bowel movement. The rounded treatment end on the PelviWand V or LV and especially the flat end of the Pocket Wand works perfectly to support the prolapse in place of a hand or a finger.

This Therapeutic use of the Wand was introduced in the clinic of Elizabeth Makous MSPT CLT PRPC, the Pelvic Whisperer. Please feel free to email her with any questions at: emakous@icloud.com
