It works for me

Pelvic Floor Rehab

I would just like to share some of my journey. I purchased a book, The Whole Life Prostate Book, by Ballentine Carter, MD. He was/is the director of Adult Urology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Great resource that cued me in on something no one has suggested (or maybe I overlooked), going to a physical therapist who specializes in pelvic floor rehab. Turns out my pelvic floor and core muscles are totally out of whack and hypertonic. That's where I hold my tension, thus the exacerbation during stressful events in my life. I've had three visits (once a week) and have had great results so far. I know there are other men that would benefit from this as well as no one really talks about pelvic floor and how to properly engage the muscles and healthy habits to promote overall urologic health. SInce I'm a physical therapist assistant I have knowledge in the field of rehab but the pelvic floor is a whole new arena and I'm learning a lot. I wonder if there is a way to pass this on to other men that would benefit. I know there are multiple causes and not every case is the same but I'm sure that there is a good number of men that could benefit from this approach. My physical therapist contends that it is a muscular problem and not a prostate problem.
