Could I Benefit from Men’s Health Physical Therapy?

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may benefit from physical therapy with a Men’s Health specialist to help reduce or eliminate your symptoms:

  • Pain in the genitals, groin, rectum, pubic bone, tailbone, and low back
  • Urinary problems, including urgency, frequency, reduced stream, pain during urination, and frequency at night

Through education, manual therapy, biofeedback and individualized exercise programs, our specialists can assist you in learning how to decrease and manage your symptoms. 

What to Expect

At your first visit, a Men’s Health trained physical therapist will do an in-depth evaluation. This will include a general medical history, a history related to your current condition, and questions about your eating, drinking, and voiding habits.

A physical assessment will also be performed to check the following:

  • Joint mobility of the hips, pelvis, and lumbar spine
  • Muscle activation/relaxation patterns in the trunk musculature
  • Scar mobility if applicable

An individualized treatment plan will be generated, and will consist of the following:

  • Manual therapy, including both soft-tissue and joint mobilization
  • Techniques for stress reduction and relaxation of appropriate muscle groups
  • Re-education of your muscles, possibly using biofeedback and electrical stimulation
  • Communication with your physician

You will leave your visit with a better understanding of your current symptoms and condition, along with a detailed plan of care and individualized home exercise program.

Do I Need a Referral for Physical Therapy?

In many states, Physical Therapists can be legally seen directly without a referral under what is known as ‘direct access’. However, some insurance companies require referral in order to pay for your treatment. As a convenience to you, all Therapeutic Associates locations will gladly verify your insurance benefits prior to your first visit.
