The Physical Therapy Approach to Male Pelvic Health 

(1.5 day course)

 Pre-requisite: (Entry Level) course in uro-gynecology,  The Physical therapy approach to female urinary incontinence (or equivalent)


The two most common male conditions that are seen by pelvic floor physiotherapists are post- prostatectomy urinary incontinence and chronic pelvic pain.  Both conditions may also involve some degree of sexual dysfunction.

This one and a half day course will enable the participant to perform a comprehensive evaluation of the male pelvic floor patient and to establish and progress an appropriate treatment plan, for incontinence or for pain.  It will also allow for a clear understanding of male sexual function as well as typical mechanisms of dysfunction, especially in relation to the above pathologies.
