Men’s Health at Body Gears

Mens Health 1024x597 Mens Health at Body Gears

The Body Gears Difference

At Body Gears, you can expect one-on-one care with a Pelvic Health specialized physical therapist in a comfortable private room with an expert that you can trust. We uniquely blend pelvic floor and musculoskeletal physical therapy to not just treat your symptoms, but to get you back to a full and active life without your symptoms holding you back. We first begin with evaluating your movement, muscle function, and tissue tension to understand the causes of your symptoms. We then work with you to build an individualized treatment plan to get you back to the activities that matter most.

How We Treat Urinary Symptoms

From post-prostatectomy to urinary frequency, the Pelvic Health Physical Therapists at Body Gears specialize in treating urinary issues in men. We are committed to treating the root causes of your symptoms to give you back control over your bladder, rather than your bladder controlling you. We use a manual approach as well as treatment tools like e-stim and biofeedback to make treatment both comfortable and effective.

Our Approach with Bowel Issues

We specialize in treating bowel issues with skill and sensitivity to the complex connections between the gastrointestinal organs, pelvic floor muscles, and bathroom habits. Our integrated approach works with your physician to customize a treatment plan that addresses your condition from the inside out. We know how uncomfortable bowel issues can be and are committed to helping you experience relief.

Eliminating Pelvic Pain

We treat pain in the groin region with innovative tools and techniques that keep you comfortable throughout the treatment session. We want our patients to experience improvement after every visit and show you methods to continue making gains outside of physical therapy. The nether regions should never hurt, and when they do, we are here to help.

Our elite team of pelvic health therapists have received advanced training for the treatment and education of men’s health conditions. At Body Gears Physical Therapy, you can expect one-on-one care with a therapist in a comfortable, private room, ensuring you’re with an expert you can trust.
