Following prostate treatment it is common to experience bladder leakage, bladder urgency, excessive urinary frequency, erectile dysfunction and pain. Physiotherapy is often recommended before and after prostate surgery to help with management of post-operative symptoms.
Pelvic floor physiotherapy can treat pelvic floor, bladder and bowel dysfunction, leakage or weakness. Pelvic floor & continence physiotherapy can help clients achieve better physical and mental outcomes, and ultimately lead a more meaningful and fulfilled life.
“Through the gentle guidance of physiotherapy, rediscover your strength and resilience after prostate surgery.”
Issues that We Commonly Treat in Men
Bladder weakness (overactive bladder).
Overactive bladder (OAB) is a condition characterized by a frequent and urgent need to urinate, often accompanied by a sudden and uncontrollable urge and leakage. This heightened bladder activity can lead to involuntary contractions, causing a person to rush to the restroom even when their bladder may not be full.
Pelvic pain in men refers to discomfort or pain in the lower abdominal, pelvic region, scrotum or penis. It may be caused by various conditions, such as prostatitis, bladder pain syndrome or pelvic floor dysfunction. Painful intercourse can often accompany pelvic pain disorders.
There are various types of incontinence, including stress incontinence, which involves leakage during activities like coughing or sneezing; urge incontinence, marked by a sudden and intense urge to urinate; and overflow ncontinence, where the bladder doesn’t empty properly. Causes of incontinence vary and can be related to factors such as weakened pelvic floor muscles, nerve damage, surgical procedures, or underlying medical conditions.
Pre and post prostatecomy
Physiotherapy before and after a prostatectomy plays a crucial role in promoting recovery, restoring pelvic health, and enhancing overall well-being by focusing on exercises and techniques tailored to support strength, flexibility, and a smooth return to daily activities.
Bowel or rectal dysfunction
Bowel or rectal dysfunction refers to issues affecting the normal functioning of the intestines or rectum, leading to symptoms such as constipation, diarrhea, incontinence, or discomfort during bowel movements.
