Physical Therapy and Intimacy in the Younger Male

Physical Therapy and Intimacy in the Younger Male

1 Contact Hour

Historically, erectile dysfunction has been a condition affecting older men whereas now we are seeing much younger men presenting with erectile and ejaculatory-related conditions that specialist male pelvic health physical therapy can help with. Male pelvic pain is a common and familiar presentation to clinicians, but a growing number of younger men are presenting with erectile issues, flaccidity issues and often low-level urinary dysfunction but in the absence of pelvic pain. This session will also explore what many of these men present with in terms of hard flaccid syndrome. Pelvic dysfunction often presents in the younger male athletic population and this session will explore how to identify whether there is a pelvic pain and/or pelvic floor component also. Nocturnal erections are a normal and healthy phenomenon, but we are now seeing patients with sleep-related painful erections which this session will also delve into. Reaching this younger population of men to help them is challenging and Gerard will also present his thoughts on this.
