Male Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy
What is Male Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy?
Pelvic floor physical therapists are uniquely trained to treat male pelvic anatomy with conditions that relate to men's urologic, sexual, and colorectal health.
While pelvic floor physical therapy is commonly prescribed for those with female anatomy, men have many pelvic issues that can be successfully treated. At Agile, your empathetic and caring pelvic floor physical therapist is highly trained in treating pelvic conditions of male anatomy. Above all, we understand this is a sensitive area and topic. Our therapists will work with you to make sure you are comfortable and informed about your condition and treatment.
What should I expect with male pelvic floor physical therapy?
Pelvic floor physical therapy is similar to other types of physical therapy. Firstly, your therapist will begin by learning about you! You will discuss your past medical history, your current lifestyle and symptoms, and your goals. Secondly, your physical therapist will watch your movement and test your strength and mobility. Your physical therapist may recommend an internal exam to test your pelvic floor muscles, but it is never mandatory. Thirdly, your physical therapist will discuss their findings and collaborate with you on a plan of care. Treatment plans usually consist of exercises, education, and building helpful habits. They will go through the exercises with you and send you an email with videos of them so you can continue your therapy at home. In conclusion, we want you to leave physical therapy feeling comfortable, confident, and educated about your condition and plan forward.
