Post-prostatectomy Urinary Incontinence

When a man has his prostate organ removed due to prostate cancer there is a chance of urinary incontinence (leakage of urine) following surgery. Physical therapy can help reduce the urinary incontinence and speed the process to becoming dry again. We teach proper pelvic floor strengthening and endurance exercises, and bladder education and management to facilitate continence.

Male Pelvic Floor Pain

Men can experience a wide variety of pelvic floor pain and symptoms. These are often caused by the muscles and nerves in the pelvic floor and not from the prostate or bladder. For that reason it is not commonly understood by the urologic community. Some of the typical symptoms that a man can experience include urinary frequency, voiding delays, post void dripping, pain with erection and/or ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, hard flaccid, testicular pain, burning with urination, sitting pain, tailbone pain, constipation, abdominal pain, pubic bone pain, pudendal neuralgia and others. Male pelvic floor pain presents differently for each man. Men will usually have several of the symptoms, not all of them. Treatments include relaxation, stretches, soft tissue mobilization, bladder management, etc.
