There are many physiotherapists, doctors, athletes and fitness trainers living with prolapse. Many continue to exercise regularly, play sport and compete. If you have recently been diagnosed with a prolapse, are nearing menopause or have recently had a baby, then this is for you (either to manage your POP or prevent one).
An internal assessment with your Women’s health physio will help you assess what degree your prolapse is as well as what you are capable of currently, whether you should consider wearing a pessary during exercise and how your PF is functioning.
There is so much information about what you can’t do with POP but there is not a great deal of information on what exercises you CAN do and HOW you do them. So, I’ll be addressing all that you can do and the strategies you need to manage your POP so you can continue exercising for life.
