A couple months back we touched on our women's health services and this week we will note what we have for the men! While men make up about half of the population, different bodies need different types of care. We are going to highlight some of our men's health services available to those who identify as such and require these forms of attention!
Physical health is very important because it can impact mental health. Understanding what your body needs to help you feel your best is what we are here for. At Peak Physical Therapy and Wellness our therapists will work with you to ensure you are as healthy and happy as possible. Menâ€™s health is not often talked about, however, it is still very important! We are going to note a few issues most men and people with penises experience and how we here at Peak can help.Â
Some of the most common issues across the board are bladder and bowel irregularities. Stemming from weakened pelvic floor muscles, these dysfunctions can make activities unbearable or even impossible at times. Uncomfortable constipation and IBS can deter you from doing the things you love and leave you feeling unable to be active. We here at Peak Physical Therapy and Wellness will develop a plan to help stabilize your pelvic muscles and strengthen your pelvic floor. Treatments could include internal and external muscular release to the pelvic floor, hip, and low back region as well as exercises for core stabilization and neural release. If you are experiencing discomfort do not hesitate to reach out to us. It is our mission to make sure our community members are feeling their best!

Unfortunately, risk of injury is a non-discriminant threat. In all levels of activity there is potential for an injury.

Using a collaborative effort, our physical therapist, your doctor, and yourself will work to generate a treatment plan that will strengthen and recuperate your muscles.
What does this look like? Depending on the injury and corrective action needed, treatment plans will vary. A consistent schedule of stretches and mobility exercises are likely to be part of your plan! These forms of movement engage your muscles in a less strenuous manner and allow for gradual growth and increased mobility. While injuries come in all forms, some require more delicate rehabilitation than others. Have you had a surgery as a result of or a deterrent for injury? If so, we also have a range of postoperative plans which will be tailored to your specific needs.

We love our activities, sometimes a little too much. Muscle stiffness and soreness are not uncommon post workout or whatever the exertion. Here at Peak Physical Therapy and Wellness, we have a range of services to help tired muscles as well as those in pain. Manual Therapy is one option.
Manual Therapy is great for targeted diagnosis and treatment. Certain techniques can increase range of motion, decrease myofascial restrictions, as well as reduce swelling and inflammation. Using hands-on techniques our physical therapists will help improve the stability of your muscles and facilitate movement to improve their function.
Pain reduction comes along with other benefits from Manual Therapy. Using a range of techniques involving the manipulation and mobilization of muscles and joints, our physical therapists can target your sources of pain. By developing a treatment plan tailored to your needs we can help improve your range of motion while decreasing pain.Â
Our hands are just about the original tools. Thanks to specific training, our physical therapists can use these tools to reduce tension and allow muscles to move more freely by encouraging blood flow. Using such techniques in tandem with therapeutic exercises, often leads to the best results and decrease of myofascial restriction.
