It is a diagnosis that often leaves Women feeling embarrassed, ashamed and depressed, but it simply doesn’t have to be like that. Knowledge is power and movement is medicine – at least in my clinical practice.
I utilize a referral network of healthcare practitioners to establish the correct diagnosis in order to provide the right treatment. Prolapse isn’t treated any differently.
Definition of prolapse: Normally, the pelvic organs—the bladder, uterus, vagina, and rectum—are supported and held in place by a group of muscles and tissues called the pelvic floor. When these muscles weaken over time, the pelvic organs can droop down and/or bulge into and/or out of the vagina.
In addition to the sensation of feeling an uncomfortable bulge in the vagina, you can experience symptoms such as
pain or pressure in the pelvis, the lower back, or both
urinary problems, like urine leaking or the feeling that you need to constantly urinate
