Common doesn’t mean you have to live with it. 1 in 5 men experience pelvic floor dysfunction. Abdominal, bowel/bladder, and sexual function can vary across the lifespan.

Physical therapy is an effective first line treatment option to help you recover your strength, confidence, and intimacy.
Our neurological rehabilitation specialists, which includes both occupations and physical Therapists, will evaluate the patient’s function, identify the relevant impairments and work with the patient to develop an individualized treatment plan utilizing evidence-based intervention to improve functional mobility and the ability to complete functional activities.
