What Can I Expect from Prolapse Physiotherapy Treatment in London?
After an initial assessment, our physiotherapists will use a wide range of techniques, from pelvic floor rehabilitation to hypopressive gymnastics, to allow you recover in a fast and safe way. They will teach you how to identify you pelvic floor muscles and how to tighten them in order to support your pelvic organs during daily activities. They will also teach you a range of exercises you can perform on your own between sessions, to speed up your recovery and maintain long term results.
Severe cases of prolapse can be treated with surgery, but most women won’t need that and can be treated with physiotherapy and exercise. Just like any other muscle, pelvic floor muscles can be trained and made stronger, thus preventing the occurrence of prolapse, or reversing the effects and avoiding further slippage. You will need to be guided through the specialised exercises by an experienced physiotherapist.
What is Prolapse, Cystocele or Rectocele?
The term refers to the bulging of one or more of the pelvic organs into the vagina, which can cause general discomfort, difficulty passing urine and pain during sex. It is, however, possible to not have any symptoms.
It is caused by weakening of tissues that supports the pelvic organs or the pelvic floor muscles, resulting in one or more of the pelvic organs pushing against the wall of the vagina. Pelvic organs include your bladder, uterus and rectum. They are held in place by tissue and the supported from below by the pelvic floor muscles. Anything that creates increased pressure in the abdomen can lead to pelvic organ prolapse, but the most common causes are:
- Pregnancy and childbirth
- Weakness in the pelvic muscles with advancing age
- Weakening and loss of tissue tone after menopause
It is an uncomfortable condition for a new mum, but it isn’t uncommon, especially for women that have given birth more than once.
