Male Pelvic Health

What is Male Pelvic Health?

Male pelvic health physiotherapy is a specialist branch of physiotherapy that deals with male pelvic pain and pelvic organ dysfunction. These issues can appear at any age and significantly affect the quality of life.

These conditions are often embarrassing, affecting your confidence and personal life. Men are so reluctant to talk about male health issues that it takes an average of 7 years for a man to discuss his issues with a GP. Physiotherapy can be successful in identifying the cause of the problem and guiding appropriate treatment. As awareness of this service is increasing, many men who had previously given up hope have experienced life changing improvements.

At the Independent Physiotherapy Service, we have a Male Pelvic Health service operating from our Cardiff clinic. This clinic is run by our specialist physiotherapist, Mark Dunford.

Many men are currently suffering in silence. If this is you, contact our clinic today to arrange an assessment which could lead to an improvement in your well-being and quality of life. Our service is highly confidential and Mark will make you feel comfortable and able to discuss these very personal problems.

Conditions that we treat include:


Erectile dysfunction
Urinary incontinence
Bowel incontinence
Pelvic organ prolapse
Prostatitis
Chronic pelvic, groin, hip and coccyx pain
Post prostate surgery/radiotherapy
