PELVIC ORGAN PROLAPSE

Pelvic organ prolapse is a common but debilitating condition. It occurs primarily when the muscles of the pelvic floor are not strong enough to support your pelvic organs (uterus, bladder, cervix, vagina and rectum). Pelvic Organ Prolapse most commonly occurs postnatally or in those who are peri/postmenopausal, but can occur in anyone of all ages. This condition can be managed very effectively with physiotherapy.
