Men’s Health Physiotherapy

Many men suffer from pelvic floor muscle weakness. Common symptoms include:

  • Leaking urine with activity, for example, running, jumping, coughing and sneezing
  • A sudden and urgent need to pass urine
  • Leakage of stool from the back passage
  • Erectile dysfunction ( the pelvic floor muscle helps to maintain erections)

Factors leading to incontinence or weakness:

  • Prostate surgery
  • Long term cough
  • Constipation/straining to empty your bowels
  • Being overweight
  • Pelvic trauma or some surgery
  • Repeated heavy lifting

If possible, each patient is individually assessed prior to treatment commencing and a detailed plan of action is designed that is unique to each patient. Pelvic Floor Muscle Exercises, Bladder Training & Whole Body Exercise Prescription are all part of Prostate Cancer recovery & the needs of each man may be very unique so one-on-one planning is essential.
