Continence & Pelvic Floor - Men

At Hahndorf Physiotherapy, we understand that continence and pelvic floor issues can have a significant impact on men’s physical, emotional and social wellbeing. That’s why we provide reliable and effective physiotherapy treatments to help men improve their pelvic floor muscle function and manage continence issues.

Male problems with incontinence, pelvic pain and erectile function are treated by Angela. 

A consult is recommended before Prostatectomy (Radical or TURP) to discuss what to expect and how to minimize incontinence through correct pelvic floor muscle action.  Follow up after the surgery is also recommended to ensure correct technique and timing of pelvic floor muscle action which has been shown to reduce post-operative incontinence and erectile dysfunction often associated with prostatectomy.

Understanding Continence and Pelvic Floor Issues for Men

Continence and pelvic floor issues affect men of all ages and can result in a range of symptoms, including:
  • Leakage of urine when coughing, sneezing, or lifting heavy objects
  • Urgency to urinate and difficulty in delaying or holding on to urine
  • Difficulty emptying the bladder or bowel completely
  • Pain or discomfort in the pelvic area or during sexual activity

 

These symptoms can have a significant impact on men’s quality of life
and may lead to anxiety, social isolation, and reduced self-esteem.
