Episode #38: Pelvic Organ Prolapse 101
In this episode of The Women's Pelvic Health Podcast, I am joined by Kara Mortifolgio, a NYC based Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist. I always LOVE having Kara on the podcast, as she is such a wealth of knowledge, has the most soothing voice, AND is my pelvic floor pt as well : ) In this episode we talk all things Pelvic Organ Prolapse; what it is, what the risk factors/causes are, how it is diagnosed, the main symptoms you would have, which doctors you should see for treatment, and of course, the role that pelvic floor physical therapy plays in all of this.
Did you know that 1 in 10 have pelvic organ prolapse? That 200,000 surgeries are done in the United States every year for prolapse? And that 80 billion dollars a year is spent in the USA for managing this condition. So let's get educated on what prolapse really is and how we can prevent it, diagnose it when need be, and most importantly, treat it correctly.
