Men’s Health

Incontinence in men is a common problem, most often associated with prostate problems but it is also a symptom of some neurological conditions, spinal cord injury or simply an overactive bladder. This can be a sensitive issue for men but the good news is in most cases it can be successfully treated with an appropriate physiotherapy programme. Typically your first visit will involve a detailed assessment of the history of the problem and any other medical history you may have. Your Chartered Physiotherapist will then develop a tailor-made treatment programme for you that may include pelvic floor strengthening exercises, bladder retraining techniques, dietary or lifestyle changes. Most problems are resolved within 8-12 weeks depending on the complexity of the problem.
