Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD) in men can include:
The most common diagnosis of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction in men is “Chronic Non-Bacterial Prostatitis”.
This diagnosis is often given after other conditions have been ruled out and functions as a catch- all diagnosis for pelvic pain in men. This may stem from the doctor’s unfamiliarity of how pelvic, hip, lower back and pelvic floor muscles and the nerves that travel through these tight muscles cause symptoms of testicular, penile and pelvic floor pain.
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction can be extremely disruptive to your daily life, affecting your ability to sit comfortably, engaging in pain free sexual activity, adding more trips to bathroom and creating more stress in your life. Pelvic physical therapy can help eliminate these problems and get back to normal.
The pelvic floor muscles wrap around the underside of the bladder and rectum. Tightness or weakness of these muscles can lead to some of the symptoms mentioned above. Men who have undergone prostate surgery may experience symptoms as well. Pelvic physical therapy can help address the problems Pelvic Floor Dysfunction creates.
