As a male, I was completely unaware of the symptoms and functions that could develop from the pelvic floor muscles. I was someone who experienced temporary proctalgia fugax which brought on severe pains within that region. However, with the help of my physical therapist, Katherine Ireland, I was able to understand how the pelvic floor muscles could cause such pains and what exercises I could do to help reduce and eliminate these pains.⠀What I didn't know before coming to Vitality Women's PT & Wellness clinic was that pains within the pelvic floor region do not only occur with just females, but in males too, which was why I was hesitant about my doctor's referral for pelvic floor therapy. In the end, I was very satisfied and happy with the therapy provided to me and more importantly, had a better understanding as to why I was experiencing pains in an area that I would have otherwise ignored in the future. I would highly recommend this physical therapy as a form of treatment as well as more awareness to males about this for those who may suffer from pains brought on by the pelvic floor muscles.
