Preparing for and Recovering From Prostate Surgery
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer, other than skin cancer, in American men. According to the American Cancer Society, 1 man in 7 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Strengthening Your Pelvic Floor Before and After Prostate Surgery
Doctors often recommend pelvic floor exercises to prepare for and recover from the side effects of prostate surgery. Safe and effective, PelvicRx® Pelvic Exercise Program For Men offers an easy, interactive, medically-sanctioned, follow-along exercise program to encourage success.
Numerous studies have shown men who strengthen their pelvic floor prior to undergoing prostate surgery or radical prostatectomy greatly reduce the after-effects of incontinence and erectile dysfunction. After surgery, it is also critical to continue to strengthen the pelvic floor to help reverse many of the damaging side effects.
PelvicRx® is an easy-to-follow, interactive exercise program, designed to target the pelvic muscles that contribute to men's health. Strong pelvic muscles can help to treat common male health conditions. Get PelvicRx® Male Pelvic Exercise Program.
"Treatment with radical prostatectomy may produce risk factors that commonly include urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction...Evidence has shown that these embarrassing conditions may be treated successfully with pre-operative and post-operative pelvic floor exercises"
- Dr. Grace Dorey
Overall Prostate Health Benefits
PelvicRx® can also help to diminish prostate inflammation, commonly associated with age-related prostate enlargement.
While pelvic muscle exercises will not prevent prostate enlargement, prostate cancer, prostate infections, or eliminate the need for getting annual prostate examinations after age 40, they do increase pelvic blood flow, which is beneficial for prostate health.
