Men with Pelvic Pain

This study aims to investigate the relationship between outcomes of novel pelvic floor muscle methods used to estimate pelvic floor muscle stiffness and EMG of the puborectalis muscle in men with chronic pelvic pain.

Chronic pelvic pain occurs in one out of every 10 men. Pelvic floor muscles are considered to be involved, however, the mechanisms are not well understood.

Eligible participants will be invited for a single testing session at The University of Queensland Human Neuroscience Unit Laboratory using the investigative methods: transperineal ultrasound imaging/shear wave elastography, electromyography and digital exam. 

Eligibility
Men with chronic pelvic pain, between the ages of 18-65
