Pelvic health-continence therapy, male
Also known as:
Men's continence therapy, Male continence therapy, Continence therapy for men
Loss of bladder control may occur in men for a number of reasons, but is most often associated with surgery performed on the prostate gland. Men can benefit from physical therapy interventions for loss of bladder control by learning to perform exercises that strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, better known as Kegels.
Biofeedback is another part of the physical therapy program. This tool measures the tiny electrical signals that muscles produce when they contract.
During a biofeedback session, muscle contractions are displayed on a computer screen. By watching the computer screen, a man can see when he is contracting the correct muscles. Biofeedback also measures muscle strength, showing the man how much progress he has made.
