Men's Health Physiotherapy: What's that?
Possibly not what you think

Possibly not what you think. There are times in your life when meeting an individual can have a career or life shifting impact. Meeting Jo Millios or Prostate Jo was such a moment. Jo works full time in Men's Heath in Perth Western Australia. Jo sees a lot of men post prostatectomy who have urinary problems, erectile dysfunction and Pelvic pain. Gerard has also been fortunate to meet and get to know Dr Ruth Jones who is one of the leading International Men's Health researchers, tutors amd clinicians. Ruth and Bill Taylor are running a Men's Health Physio course in Southampton in November that Gerard will be attending with a view to setting up a Men's health Physio service at Barefoot in Birmingham.
