Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a common condition that affects many women, particularly those who have given birth or gone through menopause. It occurs when the pelvic organs, including the bladder, uterus, and rectum, descend into the vaginal canal, causing discomfort and pain. Symptoms of POP include a feeling of pressure or heaviness in the pelvic area, difficulty urinating or having a bowel movement, and discomfort during sexual intercourse.
There are several treatment options available for POP, including lifestyle changes, pelvic floor exercises, and surgical options such as slings or mesh. Non-surgical options are also available, including laser treatment and the magnetic chair.
Laser treatment for POP is a minimally invasive procedure that uses laser energy to stimulate collagen production and promote the growth of new tissue, strengthening the tissues that support the pelvic organs. The procedure typically takes around 30 minutes and does not require anesthesia. Patients can return to normal activities immediately following the procedure.
The magnetic chair is another non-surgical option for treating POP. It uses magnetic energy to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles, strengthening them and reducing symptoms of prolapse. The treatment is non-invasive and painless, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
