HEAL PROLAPSE WITHOUT SURGERY
What is prolapse?
Why does prolapse happen?
What is the safest way to heal prolapse?
Many women are not aware of pelvic organ prolapse, much less the treatment steps. Surgery should only be considered in women with severe symptoms and have tried or refused conservative management. Studies have recommended conservative management before surgery is considered.
Nonsurgical treatment represents the safest and most effective method to treat prolapse. This includes observation, reducing weight, cessation of smoking, and reducing constipation. The main aspect of conservative treatment though lies in pelvic floor muscle exercises. It has been found to lessen prolapse symptoms, lower the diagnostic grading, and impedes progression of the condition.
It must be noted that exercises in the studies were done properly with the aide of physiotherapists. This does not mean that an observing therapist is required to do the exercises, but rather proper training and form to achieve the desired effects.
