With how pelvic health education has been structured, many of us don't get training in treating male patients or rectal treatment immediately. For some it might be months or years before we are able to add these important skills to our practice.

This leads to fewer of us treating male patients.

So in this 'sode we go through questions like "do I need to treat male patients" (TL;DR - Absolutely not, you don't have to treat any population you would prefer not to), "do I need to do rectal to treat male patients (if not, you're missing a big part of the picture), and how to set boundaries with your male patients.

Check it out! And if you're on the fence about treating male patients feel free to reach out to us or find mentorship with another pelvic therapist who does!
