Men's Health Program
Get back in control
The Men's Health Program at Frisbie Memorial's Rehabilitation Services helps improve the quality of life in men who suffer from lower abdominal and pelvic pain, or stress and urge incontinence.
Did you know that incontinence affects approximately 20% of all men? We can help improve muscular strength, tone, control and awareness through a variety of specialized techniques. Learn about healthier lifestyle choices, types of bladder irritants, voiding schedules and self-management techniques.
Pelvic pain is a persistent, unexplained pain in the lower abdominal and pelvic areas. Pain may also radiate to the lower back and legs. This pain is often associated with constipation and/or voiding dysfunction, such as diminished stream flow, increased urgency or frequency, or difficulty starting or stopping urine.
Incontinence is an involuntary loss of urine or feces. Stress incontinence is involuntary loss of urine with activities such as coughing, sneezing and laughing, while urge incontinence is involuntary loss of urine when the urge to urine is present.
Causes may include enlarged prostate, pelvic floor muscle weakness, loss of sensation due to nerve compression and/or a lifestyle that interferes with the normal function of the bowel or bladder.
Physical therapy can help improve pelvic floor muscular strength, tone, control and awareness. Our highly skilled and compassionate therapists are committed to helping improve a patient's quality of life.
