Physiotherapy following Prostate Cancer

Prostate surgery and radiotherapy can weaken the pelvic floor muscles

Prostate surgery and radiotherapy can weaken the pelvic floor muscles that control the bladder, bowel and sexual function.

Nerves and smaller muscles in the pelvis can sometimes be damaged, making you more reliant on the pelvic floor for control. 50% of men will experience erectile dysfunction following prostate surgery and up to 70% will experience continence problems.

How can physiotherapy help?

Strengthening the pelvic floor muscles is an effective way of improving continence and sexual function in men following prostate cancer treatment. Many men experience pelvic floor tightness as well as weakness, so it’s important to have a full assessment.

The abdominal muscles and the diaphragm work in close conjunction with the pelvic floor and these often require tailored muscle re-education and strengthening too.

Our specialist Men’s Health Physiotherapists Leanne and Jenny can use real time ultrasound to view the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles, making our assessments painless, non- invasive and highly accurate.
