Conditions for men bowel problems

Bowel problems can significantly impact a man’s quality of life and overall well-being. In this section, we will discuss common bowel problems in men, their symptoms, causes, and the role of pelvic floor physiotherapy in managing and improving bowel function.

Faecal incontinence

Bowel leakage can happen as we age. This might be related to other health problems such as neurological problems but also just lack of muscle tone. If bowel leakage is an issue and having an impact on quality of life, solutions are available.


Men can experience constipation for all sorts of reasons: diet related, gut disorder related, age related and related to other medical conditions. Like women, some men have pelvic floor muscles which tighten instead of relax when trying to empty the bowel. This leads to constipation or a sense that bowel is never emptied full.
