Men's Pelvic Health

Just like women, men can suffer from chronic pelvic pain syndrome, sexual dysfunctions, gential pain, and urinary dysfunction. If men develop a problem in the pelvic region, oftentimes it goes unreported because it can be embarrassing to bring up their issues to physicians. If it does not get proper treatment, it could lead to other issues including depression and irritability. Men’s pelvic health is slowly gaining awareness and recognition within the medical field for proper treatment.

What can I expect in PT?

Our therapists specialize in issues dealing with the pelvis, pelvic floor, and surrounding anatomy.  They have undergone advanced training to provide you a holistic approach to understanding and treating your underlying issues rather than only treating your symptoms.  Our therapists encompass compassion, dedication, great listening skills, and commitment to alleviating your pain while maintaining the highest standards of privacy and respect.



Why should I choose you for physical therapy?

Initially your symptoms, past medical history, and your goals will be discussed with your therapist. Oftentimes, past history and possible incidences surrounding the start of your pain can be very helpful.  Your work environment, exercise activities, and home life also will enter into the discussion of possible causative factors for your pain.  Next a thorough musculoskeletal exam will be performed.  This is one of the most critical areas of the evaluation as movement dysfunctions and joint dysfunctions often are at the crux of your issues.  Obviously, your symptoms will be addressed and evaluated along with the musculoskeletal exam. Depending on your diagnosis, a pelvic floor examination may be necessary to determine all factors involved with your pain/dysfunction. We know this can be intimidating, so your comfort is our utmost concern through this evaluation.  Upon your consent, an examination can be performed to evaluate your pelvic floor.  This examination will determine high or low muscle tone, connective tissue restrictions, symmetry or asymmetry of the pelvic floor, issues with hypersensitivity, and the musculoskeletal integrity of the pelvic floor.  In combination with the information gained from this initial appointment, your goals will be used to map a plan of care to resolve your issues. We welcome questions and strive to provide a professional and safe environment where you can take the next step to attain your goals.
