Premier clinic for
Pelvic Floor Therapy for Men
in Albuquerque

Why choose Trailhead Pelvic & Visceral Physical Therapy for male pelvic health conditions?

 

At our clinic, we believe that everyone, including those with a more upright pelvis and external genitalia, deserves high-quality care. While women's health physical therapy has been around for a long time, male pelvic health has often been overlooked in the past. We prioritize male pelvic health and strive to learn from current leaders in the field of men's health to provide the best care possible. 

Please tell me more about pelvic floor therapy for men.

The benefits of pelvic floor physical therapy 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.

 

The pelvic floor muscles are crucial in supporting the pelvic organs and controlling bowel, bladder, and sexual function. Understanding how your body works can empower you to take control of your health. Our pelvic floor physical therapist can help you by explaining your condition and providing guidance on optimizing bowel and bladder function. They can also educate you on the impact of blood flow, positioning, and pelvic floor muscle contraction on sexual dysfunction. Your therapist may teach you pain management strategies, correct Kegel exercises, pelvic floor stretching, and breathing exercises. Our therapist will take a holistic approach to treatment, addressing any other factors that may affect your pelvic floor function, including orthopedic considerations. Other treatment options are available, such as gentle mobilization techniques for painmodalities like ultrasound for Peyronie's disease, or balloon biofeedback for bowel disorders.
