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 and may not know that help is available for these conditions. . Men's health physiotherapy can help if you with any of the following concerns:

  • Urinary frequency and urgency
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Constipation and obstructed defaecation
  • Faecal urgency and incontinence
  • Penile or testicular pain
  • Chronic pelvic pain
In Australia, prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed internal cancer in men. 1 in 5 men develop prostate cancer before the age of 85.  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, pelvic floor exercises should be started before surgery.


Pelvic floor consultations are conducted in a private room.  Depending on your problem you may be asked to do a bladder or bowel diary at home to assess your bladder or bowel function.   It is usual to perform a thorough physical examination, including a real-time ultrasound scan to provide feedback about pelvic floor muscle contraction.  Occasionally, with your consent, an internal examination may be needed
