Yes, men have pelvic floors, and yes, they can have pain and dysfunction! And, just like pelvic floor problems in women, pelvic floor dysfunction in men may be associated with back, hip, or Gi pain and problems as well as urinary issues.

Physical therapy, or physiotherapy, is a wonderful profession that exists for one purpose: to help people improve function, meet their goals, and get back to a life that they want to live. No matter if you’ve been challenged by injury, illness, or pain, we’re here to help at every age and stage of your life.

Read on for more information and ideas about how to stay active, healthy, and pain free during pregnancy.
Your new baby can come with a lot of information from family, friends, and magazines (and celebrities!) telling you not only how to care for your baby, but possibly how you should look and exercise! As Women’s Health Physical Therapy Specialists, here are 6 tips to help with your post-partum recovery.
A (fun and frank) discussion with Densie LaRosa and Embody Physiotherapy.

Perhaps it is time to take a different approach to begin to change your movement patterns and change your life!
