Men's pelvic floor therapy - Comprehensive list of conditions we treat

The benefits of pelvic floor physical therapy for men are well known, but many are still unsure how we can help. Studies have shown that pelvic floor therapy is a low-risk treatment option that should be considered as the first-line approach for managing different types of pelvic floor dysfunction. We provide a screening protocol if you are unsure if you need to see a pelvic floor specialist. 

 

We will advise you on trigger point therapy, Kegel exercises, pelvic floor muscle strengthening, pelvic muscle stretching, breathing exercises, and how to exercise safely with your condition.

 

We decided to compile a comprehensive list of men's pelvic floor conditions we treat. Please know we can help if you struggle with any of the following:
