Men and women possess similar anatomy in terms of their pelvic floor muscles and the way they function. There a variety of reasons why men may experience symptoms related to pelvic floor muscle dysfunction including falls, surgeries, prostate conditions, and many more. Our therapists work toward evaluating and determining the cause of the pelvic floor muscle dysfunction and whether it is related to muscles that are overactive, underactive or a combination of the two.
Here at Phoenix PT we see our male patients pre-operatively for radical prostatectomies and for any side effects that may occur after surgery. We work toward enhancing your surgical outcome and success overcoming urinary incontinence and any other symptoms you may experience after surgery.
We provide a variety of treatments including computer assisted exercise which is often referred to as biofeedback. Patients will have a visual tool to learn how to strengthen and/or relax their pelvic floor muscles as needed. Other treatments provided include postural, dietary and behavioral modifications as well as a home exercise program that does not require any special equipment. Treatment options vary based on patient preference and need.
