Many men feel isolated and alone as to the reasons behind their pelvic health concerns. Men, like women,can experience incontinence or urinary leakage.Unlike women, who often are under the
misconception that incontinence is normal, men are acutely aware that it is NOT normal or expected. Incontinence can be dramatically recognized following prostate surgery and/or radiation. Men are alarmed by the immediate decrease in their quality of life that comes with being reliant on urinary pads throughout the day. The leakage that typically results when you exert pressure on your bladder during laughing, coughing, lifting or exercising is termed
Stress Incontinence (SI). Men seeking out physiotherapy are relieved to hear it is not normal to wake frequently throughout the night to urinate, to feel absolute panic when they have to
urinate from fear that they won’t be able to make it to the bathroom or to feel like they can never completely empty their bladder. The leakage of urine that happens with a sudden, uncontrollable need to go to the bathroom is termed Urge Incontinence (UI) and is also known as an ‘overactive bladder’. Like women, many men’s pelvic health concerns go beyond urinary leakage. Men may suffer painful pelvic health complaints such as: post ejaculatory pain, post-urination dribble or excruciating and often unpredictable sharp pain that can often radiate through their rectum and testicles. This unpredictable pain is often likened to the ‘sciatica’ of the pelvis –and is called Pudendal Neuralgia.
