Pelvic physiotherapy for men

'I didn't know I had a pelvic floor and I had absolutely no idea that it plays a role in my complaints.' It is a frequently heard statement from men.

Often men with urinary complaints go to the general practitioner to end up with a pelvic physiotherapist via a urologist. Men are also often referred to a pelvic physiotherapist after surgery, for example prostate surgery or bowel surgery.

The pelvic physiotherapist also works via direct access physiotherapy (you do not need a referral). You can make an appointment yourself.

Complaints and questions that you may have and for which you have come to the right place at a pelvic physiotherapist are:

  • Complaints when urinating

    • I feel like urine is left behind when I finish urinating;
    • The beam is no longer as strong as it used to be;
    • I notice that I can no longer hold or postpone my pee very well;
    • I drip, after peeing;
    • My pee starts jerking and jerking;
    • I have to push to get going or to pee empty;
