Male Pelvic Dysfunction. Yes: men also have a pelvic floor.

By Jillian McGowan, PT, DPT

As the conversation about pelvic physical therapy grows, more and more women are discovering the benefits of treatment, whether postpartum, postoperative, or addressing pelvic pain. But where does that leave our male patients? I regularly receive the question, “You also treat men?” The answer is yes: men also have a pelvic floor.

In both men and women, the pelvic floor serves as a support system for your pelvic organs, helps maintain continence, allows for normal bowel and bladder function, and plays an important role in sexual activity. While the conditions can vary between men and women, it is important for everyone to understand the conservative treatment options available to them through physical therapy.

“When Dr. Meere suggested I look for a practice that offered land and pool-based physical therapy, I quickly realized I might need to venture uptown as there are no physical therapy practices with access to a full-size pool in my neighborhood.  I live downtown, and it is a bit daunting to contemplate actually going somewhere beyond 14th street as I am basically a die-hard downtown person,” adds Jet. 

“However, I am glad I made the leap. After researching places online and looking at Sutton Place PT’s website and “vibe,” I am glad I decided to make that first trip! These days I happily take a Lyft two or three times a week into the wild blue yonder for my therapy sessions.”
