Men's Health

Innova’s Men’s Health Program was developed to help men who struggle with pelvic pain, erectile dysfunction, and bowel/bladder incontinence. Men’s health is a sensitive and often emotional topic to discuss and many people do not know that pelvic health physical therapy can help with these issues and more.

Incidence of Dysfunction

Pelvic dysfunction in men is more common than you may be aware. Statistics suggest that 1 in 10 men, at some time in their life will visit a doctor with the complaint of pain/discomfort in their pelvic floor. Another example is the fact that 50% of men in their 50s exhibit mild to moderate erectile dysfunction.

Furthermore, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, excluding skin cancer. In 2019, an estimated 174,650 men in the United States will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and many will require surgery. In most cases, function returns to normal after surgery, however in some cases men are left with pain, incontinence and erectile dysfunction. Innova’s Men’s Health Program can help in those incidences.

What to Expect

Your comfort and privacy are paramount at Innova Physical Therapy. Your initial visit begins with a supportive conversation with your PT so they can understand how this is affecting the quality of your life. Our PTs are compassionate, supportive and highly educated. Using a holistic approach, your PT will not only assess your pelvic floor but all body regions that could be contributing to your condition.

Throughout the examination and treatment your therapist will explain their findings, relate them back to your symptoms and craft an individualized program designed to reach your goals.
