Men’s Pelvic Health is a specialized area of rehabilitation that takes advanced education and training as well as a true understanding of the many components that contribute to a man’s overall condition. In some cases, the issue is in the pelvis and can be locally treated. In other cases, pelvic issues can be driven by other sites such as the gut, hip, or spine. Some pelvic issues such as tightness and /or pain can be driven by emotional issues.
Simply put, Men’s Pelvic Health refers to the health and well-being of the muscles and other structures including the mind that refers to or impacts the pelvis. Pelvic floor dysfunction is what happens if one or more of those structures is not working the way it should, causing unwanted and unpleasant symptoms.
Most pelvic floor therapy techniques are hands on and include both internal and external treatment.
