Men’s Health & Continence
Blokes rarely like to ‘make a fuss’, especially when it comes to ‘issues below the belt’, but as 1 in 9 men in Australia will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, side effects from treatment such as urinary incontinence, pelvic pain and sexual dysfunction cannot be ignored.
If surgery is required (a radical prostatectomy) a pre-operative pelvic floor strengthening program along with general strength and conditioning 4-6 weeks prior to surgery has been proven to give a faster return to continence and normal function after the operation.
