Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Physical Therapy Services

Transgender patients that are prepping for, or have undergone gender confirmation surgery (also termed gender affirmation surgery or gender reassignment surgery), will require the services of compassionate and skilled pelvic health and orthopaedic physical therapists. There are many ways a physical therapist can and should be involved in their integrative treatment plan:

Preoperative Pelvic Health and Orthopaedic Assessment:

    • Alignment, postural assessment and corrective exercises –
      • Binding can lead to postural dysfunctions that in turn lead to neck and back pain.
      • Tucking is associated with changes in bladder function due to long periods of delay/retention and puts you at increased risk of developing overactive pelvic floor muscles.
    • Fascial mobility assessment – to help with skin graft harvesting
    • Hip mobility assessment – decreased range of motion can lead to difficulty in positioning during the surgery, or increased pain postoperatively if hips placed into already restricted position due to extensive time spent in position during surgery (6-8 hours); Communication with the surgeon on these limitations for possible position alterations to decrease time spent in restricted or painful range of motion
    • Functional core assessment: weakness, overactivity or incoordination of abdominal and pelvic floor muscles contributes to bladder, bowel and sexual dysfunction. Some of this dysfunction may be present preoperatively and should be assessed and treated to improve post-operative outcomes.
    • Patient-specific education: This is an essential component of any physical therapy treatment plan

The initial evaluation at Fusion Wellness & Physical Therapy is 90 minutes. This article outlines what you can expect during your appointment.

If you've asked yourself "Why do my testicles hurt?", "Why do I pee all the time?", "Why does my penis hurt?", "Why is ejaculation painful?", "Can you help a shy bladder?", "Why does it hurt to poop?" and other similar questions -- keep reading. Pelvic floor issues can be multi-layered and complex. Often times with our male clients, they have seen more than one provider: urologists, physical therapists, and primary care physicians before finding our clinic.  Your therapist will use the 90 minute evaluation to understand all the things that could possibly be contributing to your condition: movement patterns, musculoskeletal problems, nerve impingement, among others. Once your therapist understands the driving causes of your condition, they will formulate a treatment plan to help you start feeling better, experiencing less pain, and getting back to the activities that you care about.
