It is estimated that about 1 in 9 Canadian men will develop prostate cancer during their lifetime and 1 in 29 will die from it. In Canada, the 5-year net survival for prostate cancer is 93%. This means that about 93% of men diagnosed with prostate cancer will survive for at least 5 years after their diagnosis.⁣

Changes in the cells of the prostate can lead to benign conditions such as prostatitis or benign prostate hyperplasia, pre-cancerous conditions such as prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia, or prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer in Canadian men, followed by colorectal, lung, and bladder cancers (Statistics Canada, 2019).⁣

One of the most common outcomes of prostate cancer treatment is urinary incontinence. This occurs because the removal of the prostate results in changes to the pelvic floor muscles. This urine leakage can be reduced by learning how to exercise these muscles correctly. The pelvic floor muscles play a significant role in controlling the bladder as well as the flow of urine. For many, these muscles are difficult to isolate and even more difficult to train. This is where our Pelvic Physiotherapy team comes in. We have the training and the expertise to assist in locating the muscles, connecting with the muscles, and properly training the muscles.⁣
