Webinar - Pelvic Organ Prolapse and The Female Athlete

About The Webinar

Hi – it’s Antony Lo The Physio Detective here.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse (known as POP) is not often talked about.

But it is actually fairly common for women who have had a child to have some level of prolapse, and this can also be accompanied with other pelvic floor disorders such as incontinence.

When the bladder bulges into the vagina, this is called cystocele, and is the most common form of POP. Rectocele is when the rectum bulges into or out of the vagina. There is also uterine Prolapse and small bowel prolapse (enterocele).

Prolapse can have a substantial effect on a woman’s quality of life and as health and fitness professionals, it is important that we are aware of what it is, and what help we can give our clients who experience POP, especially our female athletes that want to get back into the activities that they love.

This 1.5 hour webinar is about POP in female athletes and will cover the following:

  1. The definition of Pelvic Organ Prolapse
  2. What is “normal” and what isn’t
  3. What the POP Symptoms are and what they MEAN
  4. The contributing factors to POP
  5. How POP changes over time
  6. Assessment of POP – physical, functional, and psychosocial
  7. Management of POP – PFMT, Pessaries, Manual Therapy, and exercise/activity/pressure
  8. Q and A section as well as a section for you to ask your question in the comments at any time.

If you are interested in helping female athletes with pelvic organ prolapse, then this webinar is for you.

Sign up today to get started at challenging the status quo about POP and Female Athletes!
