Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Physiotherapy can be very successful in reducing symptoms and preventing worsening of the prolapse. The main aim of physiotherapy is usually to improve the function of your pelvic floor muscles, so that they can provide improved support to your pelvic organs. You will be given guidance in the appropriate lifestyle changes to make to prevent further worsening of the prolapse.

It is possible to experience pressure, heaviness or a dragging feeling in your vagina, or even see or feel a bulge in or at its entrance.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) occurs when one or more of the pelvic organs (the uterus, bladder or bowel) descends into the vaginal space. This happens when the pelvic floor muscles, fascia and ligaments that suspend these organs stretch and become weakened. For the sufferer, typically enjoyable activities become unpleasant.

This is common, not normal and help is available.

I highly recommend Embrace. Unlike most, my journey with them was a little different. It was treatment for my pelvic floor recovery post L5S1 fusion with cauda equina. My therapist Brenda was fantastic. Not only was she very professional, but she made me very comfortable from the very 1st minute. Always encouraging, I felt assured and confident with her during my recovery period. Today i got discharged after a 4 month treatment and i cant thank Brenda more. Thank you for walking this journey with me.

My experience with embrace from start to finish was nothing short of professional, warm and understanding. After my third pregnancy, I had lots of dull, heavy tugging pain low in my abdomen. I had also been suffering for years with urinary hesitancy. Went to so many different doctors and specialists to find out what was causing it, with no luck. It was only when I chanced upon embrace’s blog did I get some insight (or even awareness at all) into women’s pelvic health. I wrote in to enquire, and my worries were met with assurance and suggestions, at no cost. Preet is friendly, approachable and made me feel comfortable throughout what could have been an embarrassing therapy. It was so comforting to finally be heard, understood and not dismissed as “this is normal” the way all the doctors had. No amount of reading up compares to having real time feedback with kegels by a trained professional. 6 months in and I feel a world of difference! If anyone out there feels any less about her body after pregnancy or feels pain or discomfort in any way, or resorted to accepting “this is my new normal”, trust me you’re not alone. If you’re living in the east, I’d recommend embrace physiotherapy. They don’t pressure you to commit to regular sessions at all. No harm giving it a shot!

Really glad to have Alex as my therapist! She helped me tremendously in resolving my pelvic pain issues after delivery. I sought help from a couple of places, but they were of little use. Thankfully, I met Alex who has the experience and patience to accurately diagnose the issue and treat my pain. On top of that, Alex and the staff at Embrace are very friendly, and it was a great experience overall. I would highly recommend anyone who is suffering from postpartum pains to visit Alex at Embrace!
