OUR SPECIALIST MEN'S HEALTH SERVICES.
At Body Align Physio we are dedicated to helping men of all ages achieve their optimum physical function and improve their quality of life.
So what is Men's Health Physiotherapy Treatment?
A Men’s Health Physiotherapist is a qualified physiotherapist with a special interest and further training in the area of the male pelvic floor. To put it most simply, if it involves your bowels, your erections or your water works (continence), chances are we can help!
We work in conjunction with urologists, exercise physiologists, sexual health physicians & psychologists with the goal of restoring men's health. We do this through discussing a thorough history. We find out what your goals and expectations are so that we can work towards some targets.
We then move onto an objective assessment where we look at some of your movements and most of the time, we perform an ultrasound of your pelvic floor muscles to assess their function and strength.
From this information we formulate a treatment plan together which may include education of various strategies to manage and support some of these specific conditions, contracting/relaxing the pelvic floor, increasing general exercise tolerance, or some self-release work.
We understand that these are very sensitive topics and as always we treat every case with the utmost privacy and respect.
