This is an online course offered through Embodia Academy. 


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.

    Dr. Jo Milios - Men's Health Physiotherapist

    Jo Milios is an Australian Physiotherapist who has a special interest in Men’s Health, focusing on Prostate Cancer (PCa), Urinary and Erectile Dysfunction, Pelvic Pain, Peyronie’s disease (PD), Exercise, and Yoga. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science (Physiotherapy) in 1993, the big gap seen in Men’s Health proved pivotal in her decision to specialize in 2005. Recently completing Ph.D. studies at the University of Western Australia, Jo investigated the quality of life outcomes in men undergoing surgery for PCa via a large randomized controlled trial aimed at reducing the impact of urinary continence and erectile dysfunction. A second RCT utilizing therapeutic ultrasound to treat scar tissue in the 1 in 6 men who develop Peyronie’s disease following treatment for PCa was also completed.

    Jo has presented her research findings at several international conferences including WCPT15, 17 & 19, APCC 2014-18, CSM 2020, and locally at Men’s Sheds, Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, and ANZUS Conferences 2011-2018. Recent publications include papers in the ANZ Continence Journal (2018, 2019) and BMC Urology (2019) with further papers in review, Jo provides workshops throughout Australia and internationally, lectures at Charles Sturt and Curtin University, and in 2012 established, ‘PROST! Exercise 4 Prostate Cancer Inc. a not-for profit organization, which provides an exercise and peer support program for ANY man diagnosed with PCa.

    Jo’s passion is education and she will happily provide this in any forum- in person, online, via TeleHealth, or through the Men’s Health Physiotherapy Facebook group which Physiotherapists can access.
