Male Pelvic Care

Male chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) is a common urologic disorder that affects up to 11% of men. It is the persistence of pain in the pelvic region without bacterial infection or any obvious pathology. It can be debilitating and affects the quality of life of the individual.

Common symptoms of male CPPS include:

  • Genital and perineal pain but can also manifest as pain in the anal region
  • Voiding dysfunctions such as obstructive or irritable bowel movements, urinary urgency and incontinence, irritable and bladder and obstructive urination
  • Sexual dysfunctions such as weak erection, premature ejaculation, painful ejaculation
  • Musculoskeletal pain in the tailbone, buttocks, hips and lower back aggravated by stress, sitting, urination, bowel movement, sexual activity, lifting heavy objects

On the first session, our physiotherapist would:

  • Take a comprehensive history of your condition (will include bladder, bowel and sexual functions), other medical conditions, environmental, social, and emotional issues that may be contributing to your symptoms
  • Examination of your posture, muscle condition, breathing patterns, and general movement of the entire body
  • Examination of your pelvic floor muscles
  • Educate you on your present condition and give an initial home exercise program
  • Set short-term and long-term goals

On the following sessions, our physiotherapist would:

  • Review your symptoms in the past 24-120 hours
  • Review goals for the session and help you through the exercise program, which can include breathing exercises, stretching exercises and strengthening exercises
  • Perform external and internal work on your pelvic floor muscles
