Men’s Health

Men’s Health

How healthy are you? Did you know that most men have a functional view of their health?
e.g. “If I can still do the things that are important to me, then I’m healthy”.

We tend to view our health in terms of:

  • Work
  • Sport
  • Play
  • Sex

Did you know that men tend to live an average of 5 years less than women and that men lead in adverse health
statistics globally? So… what does men’s health cover? How can a physio help me?

Men’s health is a broad area and consists of:

  • Physical health
  • Medical health
  • Mental health
  • Social health

These areas do not exist independently. They are linked.
Neglecting one area can lead to reduced health in another.

Most of us are familiar with physiotherapy. If we have aches and pains, we see a physio. But did you know that
physiotherapists can help with:

  • Incontinence
  • Prostate symptoms
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Pelvic Pain

The common reasons that men don’t go for regular check-ups are:

  • Fear
  • Denial
  • Embarrassment
  • Threatened masculinity

By the time we decide to seek professional help things are really getting out of hand. Guys, these statistics are
terrible! We are at least 30 years behind women’s health!

If you have any men’s health concerns, please don’t leave it too late and become a statistic. We are here to
help you. We will work with you and become part of the larger multidisciplinary team to help you achieve your
health care goals.
