We provide Men's Health treatments

Men have a pelvic floor so, like women, they can suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction.

The prevalence of urinary incontinence in men younger than 65 years old is 4%, but it increases to 17% in men older than 65 years old.

Men can also suffer from faecal incontinence, which can present as marks on underwear or trouble holding on until reaching the toilet. The prevalence of faecal incontinence in men is 5.5% in Australia.

It’s also estimated that 1 in every 12 men has chronic pelvic pain, which is a pain in any area below the belly button and above the groin area.

Some of the most common pelvic floor dysfunctions in men are:

  • Prostate cancer and associated urinary incontinence post-surgery and post-radiation
  • Bladder urgency and frequency problems
  • Post-micturition dribble (after-dribble)
  • Bowel issues including constipation, urgency and/or soiling
  • Chronic pelvic pain including anal, penile or testicular pain
