Pelvic Organ Prolapse | Know the signs and how to get help – Pelvic organ prolapse can occur when the tissues that normally support the pelvic organs (namely the bladder, uterus, and rectum) become injured or weak. This can occur in relation to childbirth, pelvic surgery, age/menopause, chronic constipation, poor lifting mechanics, and more. Symptoms include pressure or heaviness at the openings of the pelvis, pelvic pain, problems with voiding bowel/bladder, difficulty with intercourse, and sometimes changes in sensation to the pelvic region. Pelvic floor physical therapy can help with training the muscles of the pelvic floor, as well as the surrounding core muscles and diaphragm, to reduce or eliminate prolapse-related symptoms.
