Please tell me more about pelvic floor physical therapy for men.

Research suggests that pelvic floor therapy is a safe, low-risk treatment option that should be the first choice in managing different types of pelvic floor dysfunction. Pelvic floor physical therapy may also help you depend less on medication or avoid surgery. 

 

The pelvic floor muscles are essential for controlling bowel, bladder, and sexual function. Our pelvic floor physical therapist can help you by explaining your condition and giving you strategies to help with your problem. Your therapist may teach you pain management techniques, Kegel exercises, pelvic floor stretches, and breathing exercises. They can also educate you on the impact of blood flow, positioning, and pelvic floor muscle contraction on sexual dysfunction. Other treatment options are available, such as gentle mobilization techniques for pain and modalities like ultrasound, balloon biofeedback, or surface EMG biofeedback. 

 

Our therapist will take a holistic approach to treatment, addressing any other factors that may affect your pelvic floor function, including orthopedic considerations.
