What is Men’s Health physiotherapy and how can it help me?
Men's Health Physiotherapy is a specialist branch of physiotherapy where the physiotherapist has undergone specialist training and achieved advanced competencies in pelvic and urological anatomy, pathology, diagnosis, and treatment. They are trained to assess and treat men suffering from pelvic floor weakness, problems with the bowel and bladder, pain in the pelvis. At Tracey Miles Chartered Physiotherapists our physiotherapists are dual trained in musculoskeletal physiotherapy and Men's Health Physiotherapy. They have a detailed understanding of pelvic anatomy and pelvic floor function and they are skilled in many techniques to treat pain and rehabilitate function.
