How can pelvic floor PT help with managing symptoms of prolapse?
Pelvic floor therapy aims to address the weaknesses within the pelvic floor, core and hip muscles. The goal of pelvic floor therapy is to have you participate in any activity, without prolapse symptoms.
Pelvic floor therapists provide hand-on manual treatments, individualized exercises and discuss lifestyle modifications in order to reduce pelvic pressure and allow you to improve your activity level, with little to no symptoms. The key to managing prolapse is controlling how your body manages pressure that occurs with lifting, coughing and exercise.
"I didn't realize how much I needed pelvic floor therapy until I started. It felt so good to have a doctor actually care about the total outcome and really establishing the root cause rather than jumping to resolution of the individual symptom. My only regret is that I didn't come sooner!"
