Men's Health

You might never have thought about it before but men have a pelvic floor too!  The pelvic floor muscles are important for bladder and bowel control as well as sexual function. Men are often reluctant to discuss continence or sexual function issues. 

In Australia, prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men. Following prostate surgery many men will experience urinary incontinence or erectile dysfunction.  This can be very challenging for both the man and his partner.  Incontinence may be mild, needing pads to manage for just a few weeks, or more severe, requiring pads for up to twelve months.  Exercising the pelvic floor muscles effectively will help men regain bladder control earlier. Ideally, the exercises are started before surgery.

We offer

  • Pre-operative assessment prior to Prostatectomy.
  • Post-operative pelvic floor training.
