Keeping these muscles strong is essential for both men and women

Pelvic floor muscles are an important group of muscles that provide cradle like support for the pelvic organs, as well as giving you control when you urinate.  Keeping these muscles strong is essential for both men and women: a great way to learn more is by having pelvic floor physiotherapy sessions.

Pelvic Floor explained for women

Pelvic floor muscles can weaken for a number of reasons, including childbirth and ageing. These weakened muscles can lead to stress incontinence – the leakage of urine when there is extra pressure on the bladder through coughing, laughing or exercising like running and jumping.

Feeling that you always need to urinate is another common problem that can arise. The average number should be around 4-6 times a day. There could be many reasons why, including weak pelvic floor muscles, lifestyle habits or tension within the pelvic floor muscles. Following a detailed assessment, the right treatment will be tailored for you. Following this course of physiotherapy with one of our specialists, we highly recommend the MUTU system programme as a follow-on at home.

Pelvic Floor explained for men

Men may experience incontinence following surgery to the prostate, including a prostatectomy for cancer, which can be greatly helped through pelvic floor muscle exercises.

Prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain syndrome is one of the most common diagnosis for pain located around the pelvis, groin and genitalia. Prostatitis can be very misunderstood. Many men are left feeling anxious and lost without any idea of how to treat their symptoms. Our Specialist Men’s Health Physio team can assess, offer advice and put together a tailored treatment plan.

One particular cause for prostatitis is tension within the pelvic floor muscles. Along with some lifestyle changes, specific exercises and work on the pelvic floor muscles to release this tension it can significantly improve the symptoms.

It is important that you exercise the right muscles in the correct way. Pelvic floor physiotherapy gives you a tailored programme to help, prevent and treat pelvic floor dysfunction – incontinence, organ prolapse or pelvic pain.

Our service is highly confidential and respects the sensitive nature of these problems. For more information on Women’s Health Physiotherapy, Men’s Health Physio and pelvic floor physiotherapy please call us on 020 7036 0286 or drop us an email.
