Erectile dysfunction affects 50% of men at some stage in their lifetime. This includes issues of erection – sustaining and maintaining, issues of orgasm- premature, delayed or absent, pain associated with sexual activity and specific conditions such as Hard/Flaccid Syndrome, Chronic Pelvic Pain and Peyronie’s Disease.

Research has shown that there is a strong link between cardiovascular disease and erectile dysfunction in men, so keeping whole body health in addition to pelvic health will be an additional focus of this workshop. Exercise prescription, pelvic floor muscle training and penile rehabilitation – including the use of vacuum pumps and medical management will be presented.

Opportunities for clinical case presentations and education to immediately translate to patients will enable you to more confidently deal with sexual health in men – a very significant and under-serviced area of physiotherapy that every practitioner could benefit from.


This online course is open to physiotherapists, nurses, nurse practitioners, occupational therapists, naturopaths, chiropractors, medical doctors, and any other licensed health care provider.
