Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) is a condition unique to females in which the genitourinary organs descend within the pelvis, distort the vaginal wall and, in some patients, prolapse outside the vagina bulging through the introitus. Therefore, POP may be considered a type of hernia in which the pelvic organs descend into the vagina but remain entirely covered by the vaginal wall. POP is also known as vaginal prolapse. POP may involve any combination of the organs located within the female pelvis including bladder(cystocele), uterus(uterine prolapse), bowel and rectum(rectocele). Symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse include a bulging feeling in the vagina that worsens as the day progresses, urinary incontinence, or constipation. Studies have associated POP with pregnancy, aging, hormonal status, obesity and weight gain, chronic pulmonary disease and smoking, genetic factors, congenital anatomic factors, connective tissue abnormalities, as well as congenital and acquired neurological abnormalities. However, the strongest relationship exists with childbearing and delivery and its effects on the musculofascial structures of the pelvis.

How can physical therapy help me with pelvic organ prolapse?
A physical therapist trained in women's health cannot repair the fascia or damaged tissue. The physical therapist can assist you in supporting the prolapse with a comprehensive exercise program emphasizing strengthening the pelvic floor, which will alleviate the symptoms of a pelvic organ prolapse.
