About Craig

A/Prof. Craig Allingham
Sports, Exercise & Men’s Health Physiotherapist

After a successful career in high performance sports science and medicine, including four Olympic Games as part of the Australian Team medical support, Craig refocused his skills on men’s health.

Sadly, this was prompted by his Dad’s death from Prostate Cancer and observing the lack of knowledge on how men can manage both the disease and the side-effects of treatment. Craig developed a program for restoring continence and erectile activity for men following prostate surgery with the idea that these men were now pelvic floor athletes and needed a high-performance program to achieve their goals. His book ‘Prostate Recovery MAP – Men’s Action Plan‘ has been a great resource for thousands of men in Australia and overseas.

Craig continues to educate his professional colleagues on their role in men’s health through conference presentations in Europe, New Zealand, the USA, the Middle East as well as Australia. He has established training courses (Mastering the Martians) and studied how men process incoming health information and how he can get through their filters to ensure they take action.

In response to the trend towards Active Surveillance (deferring treatment for low risk prostate cancers) Craig identified a group of men who were well monitored but not advised on how to reduce the chances of their prostate cancer progressing. His new book, ‘The Prostate Playbook’, is a strategic guide for men to suppress, undermine and sabotage their existing prostate disease or better still, reduce the chance of having cancer in the first place.

Craig lives on the Sunshine Coast in Australia with his wife, Mary. His interests include motorcycling, bee-keeping and playing jazz saxophone in a local band.
