Men's Pelvic Health Physical Therapy


Men and women possess similar anatomy in terms of their pelvic floor muscles; however, new research has shown contemporary clinical practice is typically focused on assessment of anal contraction and training which has little to do with urinary continence in men.  Using transperineal ultrasound imaging, treatment can directly evaluate urethral pressure mechanisms providing a foundation for more specific assessment and intervention.  


There a variety of reasons why men may experience symptoms related to pelvic floor muscle dysfunction including bicycling, surgeries, prostate cancer/inflammation, and many more.  We encourage our male patients to come for an evaluation prior to prostate surgery or radiation treatments to prepare your bladder and pelvic floor muscles before their prostatectomy or radiation treatments.


We provide a variety of treatments including computer assisted exercise which is often referred to as biofeedback and pelvic floor stimulation. Patients will have a visual tool to learn how to strengthen and/or relax their pelvic floor muscles, as needed. Other treatments provided include pelvic floor muscle downtraining, dietary and behavioral modifications as well as a home exercise program that does not require any special equipment, surgery or medication. Treatment options vary based on patient preference and need.


Conditions treated include but are not limited to:

  • Prostatectomy/radiation side effects (including pain, burning, urgency, erectile dysfunction and incontinence)

  • Urinary incontinence

  • Urinary frequency/urgency

  • Fecal incontinence

  • Painful elimination (bowel or bladder)

  • Chronic constipation

  • Crohn's disease/Irritable Bowel Syndrome

  • Urinary retention

  • Pelvic & low back pain

  • Pudendal neuralgia
