Men's Health Issues at Saunders Therapy Centers

Have you had prostate surgery or find incontinence or pelvic pain affecting your personal relationships and ability to work effectively? Many people don’t realize that physical therapy treatment is an option. Pelvic floor musculoskeletal disorders are common in men and too often go unrecognized during the evaluation of pelvic pain syndromes. Proper evaluation facilitates the diagnosis of spasm or trigger points, and physical therapy often achieves a major improvement in quality of life. At Saunders Therapy Centers, we have specially trained men’s health physical therapists who can help.

A variety of Men’s Health Issues are treated at Saunders Therapy Centers including:

  • Pelvic Floor Muscle Dysfunction
  • Painful Scars or adhesions
  • Pelvic Pain
  • Pain Post Pelvic Surgeries
  • Pain Pre and Post Prostate surgery
  • Pain with Intercourse
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Constipation
  • Voiding Dysfunctions
  • Sacroiliac (SI) pain
  • Coccyx (tailbone) pain
  • Abdominal/groin/hip pain
  • Incontinence / Bladder problems
  • Incontinence/ Bowel problems

What to Expect at Physical Therapy?

Our therapist will complete a thorough exam in order to establish a plan of care that both you and your therapist agree will help you reach your goals.

Musculoskeletal Evaluation

Your exam will include an assessment of your posture, muscle flexibility and strength, pelvic and lumbar symmetry, and a pelvic floor muscle exam if appropriate.

Treatment

  • Manual Therapy: Hands on techniques to restore pelvic and lumbar symmetry, reduce muscle tension, increase flexibility, improve joint mobility, and address scar tissue adhesions.
  • Functional Re-training: Restore correct posture and body mechanics, correct faulty movement patterns, and correct the coordination of abdominal and pelvic floor muscles.
  • Exercise Instruction: Exercises for home to build strength, improve flexibility, improve relaxation in general or for the pelvic floor muscles, and improve bowel and bladder habits.
  • Modalities: Biofeedback to assist with exercises or relaxation training. Electrical stimulation to facilitate a pelvic floor muscle contraction or to assist with pain control.

Expected Outcomes: Our goals are to treat incontinence in 3-6 visits and pelvic pain in 6-9 visits.
