Despite stigmas of pelvic health being a women’s issue, men can also greatly benefit from pelvic floor physical therapy. Physical therapy can help you regain your body’s natural wellbeing and strength. Pelvic floor physical therapy is a safe, evidence-based, medically recognized specialty. It is a conservative approach that has helped cure pelvic floor dysfunction. It consists of manual therapy, pelvic floor, abdominal and hip exercises, biofeedback and neuromuscular re-education.
At Able Pelvic Physical Therapy we offer one- on -one individualized care to provide the highest level of treatment to each patient.
Conditions we treat:
Urinary issues in men are surprisingly common, particularly after being diagnosed with varying prostate related diagnoses. The pelvic floor muscles run under the bladder and strengthening them can have a positive effect on these conditions.
After going through the difficult experience of a prostatectomy and or prostate cancer, it can be hard to deal with the after effects. These can include urinary incontinence, urinary frequency and urgency, and overactive bladder. Having these symptoms can negatively affect the social and sexual life of the patient. Furthermore, with the way that the medical community currently deals with male urinary issues, many men are self diagnosing through online research, and are not finding the proper information.
Rather than seek medical interventions, physical therapy is considered a conservative and successful approach. Pelvic floor work can even improve painful bladder conditions such as Interstitial cystitis, which though it has no cure, can be brought under control. Meeting with a pelvic floor specialist is a very positive and safe way to approach male urinary issues.
