Premier clinic for men's pelvic floor therapy in Albuquerque

Trailhead Pelvic and Visceral Physical Therapy is the premier clinic for male pelvic floor therapy in Albuquerque, and men's pelvic health is a top priority.

Dr. Sunel is dedicated to helping men with pelvic floor disorders, pelvic pain, and sexual dysfunction after witnessing her father struggle with severe chronic bowel infections throughout his adult life. She understands the shame and helplessness accompanying these conditions, especially in social situations, and how they can affect one’s mood. She focuses on creating a safe and supportive environment where men can receive the help they deserve. 

Men's pelvic Therapy

Are you looking for a pelvic floor physical therapist for men?

See us for pelvic pain or abdominal issues.

In a recent study, patients were asked about their most valued lessons on pain. (Leake et al. 2021) The study identified three key themes from open-ended responses:
• Pain does not mean my body is damaged.
• Thoughts, emotions, and experiences affect pain.
• I can retrain my overprotective pain system.


See us for bowel, bladder, or sexual dysfunction.

Research by Laumann et al. found that less than 25% of individuals with sexual problems will seek help from a professional. See this screening tool if you are unsure if you should schedule with a pelvic floor specialist. 


We encourage you to seek help. Our male pelvic health specialist, Dr. Sunel, has the expertise and passion to assist you effectively.

We understand - we have been there ourselves

According to a study, 25% of women in the United States have reported experiencing one or more pelvic floor disorders. The most common disorders are urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, and pelvic organ prolapse. (Wu et al. in 2014) This screening tool can help if you are unsure if you need to see a pelvic health specialist. 


Dealing with pelvic floor issues can be truly challenging, as they often come with feelings of anxiety, fear, and embarrassment. Your therapist understands it can be hard to leave the house when dealing with these problems. 

Dr. Sunel teaches you to work WITH your body while appreciating the body's own healing capabilities. She invites anyone suffering from pelvic floor issues to knock on her door.
