Have you been experiencing pain in your pelvic region? Did you recently give birth or strain yourself from lifting something too heavy? The pain and pressure you feel could be a prolapsed organ. Organ prolapse is a condition that can occur in both men and women due to a weakened pelvic floor. A prolapse involves organs of the pelvis including the bladder, bowel, and uterus. While there are several treatment options, one of the best ways to correct the problem is with prolapse surgery at Ogden Clinic in Utah.
Prolapse of the pelvic organs can be caused by aging, childbirth, chronic coughing, constipation, inappropriate exercise, menopause, obesity, pregnancy, previous pelvic surgery, and strain from heavy lifting.
