We all have a pelvic floor - and it's very important
Perform better with a healthy pelvic floor
You don’t need to suffer in silence
Men Need a Healthy Pelvic Floor Too
We get it. As blokes, we don’t want to be talking about things ‘down there’.
But we need to. It’s that important. It’s also an area of our body that’s relatively simple to look after – and to fix when things stop working the way they should.
Research has found that 51% of men don’t even know they have a pelvic floor! This level of awareness needs to change.
That’s because your pelvic floor is responsible for a lot of things, including controlling your bladder and bowel functions and maintaining sexual performance.
We need to take care of it.
Just Another Group of Muscles
But here’s the interesting thing – your pelvic floor is just another group of muscles. It works with your spine, abdomen and hips to provide core strength and stability throughout our body.
And, like any other group of muscles, sometimes they’re not strong or fast enough, and sometimes they’re being over-worked.
What can cause weakness or damage to your pelvic floor muscles, and the joints and organs they support?
There are a number of risks, including:
- heavy/incorrect lifting
- chronic constipation
- chronic coughing
- a family history of pelvic problems
- lack of exercise, and/or
- being overweight or obese.
And when your pelvic floor muscles aren’t working properly, that’s when issues can arise – like incontinence, lower back pain and even sexual dysfunction (such as erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation).
We’re Here to Help
But you’re not alone. In fact, 1 in 4 men will experience some degree of erectile dysfunction during their lifetime, while almost 100% of men who undergo radical prostatectomy surgery will experience urinary incontinence.
The good news is that you can get help. At the Coregood Institute we specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of pelvic floor issues. In most cases we’re able to treat issues quickly and easily, providing significant improvement and, in many cases, curing them completely.
You don’t need to worry or feel embarrassed – we’ve seen and heard it all before. We want to, and really can, help you.
We’re here to get things working properly ‘down there’ so you can get you back to doing the things you love.
