Improve your Prostate Health!
The Prostate Gland
The prostate is a small gland about the size of a walnut and it sits just below your bladder and in front of your rectum. Your prostate gland is very close to your pelvic floor muscles.
The Male Pelvic Floor
The male pelvic floor is a hammock of muscle stretching from your tailbone at the back to the pubic bone at the front. It is a very important for your health and well being, but it is probably something that you rarely think about until it stops working properly. Your urethra and your anus both pass through your pelvic floor and your pelvic floor works to keep you continent, stop you passing wind at inappropriate times and plays an important part in erectile function and orgasms. With our Chair, it’s a Win-Win Situation!
Problems with prostate and male Pelvic Floor
If you are struggling with male incontinence, you are not alone. It can occasionally happen after a TURP or, more commonly, following a radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer. One of the main issues surrounding this is that it is just not talked about. For instance, one of my recent patients once told me:
‘My prostate first made its presence felt during my mid-fifties, when “having a wee” suddenly ceased to be what it was. What had always been a powerful jet dwindled to a mere trickle and three or four effortful tries were needed before my bladder felt empty. Like most men when things go wrong below the belt, I was overcome with squeamish embarrassment and told no one.’
The taboo around this problem needs to end and there is plenty you can do to reverse symptoms of incontinence. But first you need to find your pelvic floor muscles and you can do this in two stages.
Next time you go to have a wee, try to stop the flow of your urine midstream and contract your muscles upward and inwards, squeeze, lift and hold and then let go. Stopping and starting your flow of urine is not good for you, it’s used just as a test so only do it to learn which muscles are the right ones. It can also help to stand naked in front of a mirror and watch the base of your penis; it should appear to be being sucked into your body and your testicles should be moving as though they are contracting up towards your perineum. Then, try to imagine you are controlling an attack of diarrhoea or imagine you are in a lift full of people and you want to pass wind. Try to pull up the muscles around the back passage or anus.
Now you’ve identified your pelvic floor muscles, you can start the rehabilitation process.
Both men and women have a pelvic floor which is a group of muscles that stretch from the pubic bone to the tailbone. It plays an important role in supporting your bladder, bowel, and sexual function. Pelvic floor problems can occur when the pelvic floor muscles are stretched, weakened or too tight. Some common causes of weakened/tightened pelvic floor include:
- Persistent heavy lifting
- Becoming overweight
- High impact exercise
- Long-term coughing
Most men aren’t even aware they have prostate dysfunction until they start having symptoms.
When you have a weak pelvic floor you may experience the following:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Leaking urine during activities or sneezing
- Sudden and urgent need to urinate
- Incomplete emptying of the bladder and bowel
- Increased frequency of toilet visits
One of the most effective ways to combat pelvic floor dysfunction is with High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology (HIFEM). Our pelvic floor stimulation chair improves erectile dysfunction and men’s sexual health in six 30-minute sessions. This non-surgical treatment can improve urinary incontinence, constipation, and erectile dysfunction quickly and discreetly.
High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) causes pelvic floor muscles to stimulate and restore neuromuscular control. A single session brings thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions, which are extremely important in the muscle re-education of incontinent patients. This treatment is FDA-approved, non-invasive, and effective at treating urinary incontinence and prostate health which is a real issue for men and can have a devastating effect on their daily lives.
Infections, prostate cancer, or stress have a negative impact on your intimate health. Apart from supporting the pelvic floor organs and control of incontinence, pelvic floor muscles play a crucial role in genital arousal and attainment of an orgasm. The weakness or lack of conditioning of the pelvic floor causes insufficient activity necessary for blood flow and therefore inhibits orgasmic potential.
If you have had a prostatectomy due to an enlarged prostate or cancer, you no longer need to suffer with leaking urine due to the inability to control your bladder.
Our chair is a breakthrough treatment suitable for men of all ages who desire a solution for urinary incontinence and improvement in the quality of intimate life.
