What it is, how it manifests, and can physical therapy can help.
Prolapse occurs when the organs in the pelvis, such as the bladder, urethra, rectum, or uterus begin to move lower than their original anatomical place. This can lead to feelings of pelvic heaviness, pressure, or the sensation of something falling from the vagina.
A major cause of this is increased pressure through the pelvic floor, which can be caused by poor intra-abdominal pressure management, posture dysfunction, and muscle weakness.
Pelvic health physical therapy can help to address any of these issues in order to decrease the physical symptoms of the prolapse.
