Incontinence affects men as well as women as much as upto one in ten men can be affected at any stage of there life. A major cause of incontinence that physio’s see men for is prostate surgery due to cancer.

Incontinence can be an embarrassing consequence of this surgery. The symptom of accidental leakage of urine can be embarrassing and the best way to deal with this is to be prepared and learn how to minimise it. Pelvic floor muscle exercises can also help to enhance the quality of an erection which can be an issue after this type of surgery, we can improve this with acupuncture and progressive strengthening exercises.

We use Pilates based matwork, swiss ball and machine based exercises to enable you, to return to full everyday activities and your sport without embarrassing incidents

Basic general anatomy and workings of the bladder will be taught before assessment and teaching of the correct exercise regime.

We are trained in pilates and acupuncture so may use some of these techniques to speed recovery thus enabling return to normal function and sport as soon as possible.

Ideally, if you’re going for surgery you should start your exercise regime four to six weeks prior to surgery and then after the catheter has been removed.

As specialist pelvic floor physios there are many issues we can help you with.
