Pelvic Floor Dysfunction: How Common is it in Men?

Pelvic floor dysfunction is a condition that I often see in men. It’s a condition that is not talked about, but it’s more common than you might think. This can cause a range of unpleasant symptoms, but the good news is that with the right treatment, many men can experience significant relief. 

In this blog, we’ll explore what pelvic floor dysfunction is, the symptoms to look out for, and the most effective treatment options available.

What is Pelvic Floor Dysfunction?

If you have been experiencing urinary incontinence, chronic pelvic pain, or sexual dysfunction, you might be dealing with a common issue called pelvic floor dysfunction. Pelvic floor problems can affect the muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue in your pelvic area, leading to a range of symptoms that can impact your daily life.

Symptoms of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

The symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction can vary widely, but some of the most common include:

  • Urinary incontinence
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Painful bowel movements
  • Constipation

Treatment Options

If you’re finding yourself dealing with symptoms of pelvic floor issues, don’t worry. These symptoms can be tough to handle, but there are ways to manage them. As a physical therapist, I have helped many men overcome the discomfort and inconvenience that comes with this issue.

At Pelvis NYC, we take a personalized approach to treatment, recognizing that each patient’s situation is unique. We also offer a variety of effective treatment options to help you regain control and confidence. Here are some of the ways we can help:

  • Pelvic floor muscle strengthening exercises: These exercises are designed to help you improve the strength and endurance of your pelvic floor muscles. Furthermore, it can help improve bladder and bowel control, reduce pelvic pain, and enhance sexual function.
  • Biofeedback therapy: This technique uses specialized sensors to help you visualize and understand your body’s responses to certain exercises, making it easier to train your pelvic floor muscles effectively.
  • Manual therapy techniques: We use gentle manual techniques to help release tension and tightness in the pelvic floor muscles and then, reduce pain and promote healing.
  • Electrical stimulation: This therapy uses low-voltage electrical currents. This stimulates the pelvic floor muscles, helping them to contract and relax more effectively.
