Treating men with male pelvic pain, athletic pelvic pain, hard flaccid syndrome, erectile dysfunction, sporting hip and groin, post prostatectomy urinary leakage and post prostatectomy erectile dysfunction are our priority in our 2 Men's health physiotherapy clinics in Harborne and Kings Heath , Birmingham , UK. Lisa, myself ( Gerard ) and Konstantionos now run a 5 day service of men's health physiotherapy and some saturdays although we do need a day off for family fun and self care. We are one of the few clinics anywhere to have 3 male pelvic health physios and to deliver a 5 day men's health clinic.
In addition to the clinical work we do we are also heavily involved in encouraging other physiotherapists and clinics/ departments to get further involved in men's health and we love working with our good friend and esteemed colleague Jo Millios ( Perth, Western Australia ) in this advocacy work. We are excited about meeting up with Jo at the World Congress of Physical Therapy in Geneva in May 2019. We are presenting some Coventry university research done by Jessica on the best phrases to get the male pelvic floor muscles working in our post prostate surgery men. We are big fans of #nutstoguts as our men don't like shorten the penis because the prostate cancer surgery already shortens the penis and men don't want to be constantly reminded of this by telling them to "shorten the penis". Our research looks at both phrases.

Saturday 26th October 2019 - Sunday 27th October 2019
This highly practical course for the physiotherapist who wants to develop expertise in the assessment and treatment of the male pelvic floor and related conditions with an emphasis on male pelvic pain. Previously the course has attracted a spectrum of clinicians including experienced and new Women’s health physios, musculoskeletal & Sports physios ( male & female) who were keen to develop their scope of practice. This course will take physios through the anatomy of the male pelvic floor to becoming competent and confident in performing internal & external assessments on the patient with male pelvic pain. It will also combine traditional pelvic health skills with musculoskeletal skills to provide a more complete management of typical Men’s health conditions.
