Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when the organs of the pelvis fall out of place because supporting tissue is weakened. The most common symptom is a feeling of heaviness, pressure or bulging in the area of the vagina.

Diagnosis

In more severe cases, tissue may protrude outside of the vaginal opening. Mild to moderate prolapses can be treated non-surgically. The goal is to increase strength of the pelvic floor muscles to better support the prolapsed organs.

Treatment

Your treatment may include:

Physical therapy to strengthen the pelvic floor and abdominal stabilizing muscles

Biofeedback to increase awareness of proper muscle contraction

Electrical stimulation using a low-grade electrical current to improve muscle contractions
