“Traditional treatments for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) assume weak pelvic tissue as the cause. Pelvic floor muscle training has been shown to improve POP symptoms but not prolapse stage and does not reduce rates of referral for future treatment (eg, pessary or surgery). An alternative hypothesis is proposed that excessive tissue stiffness causes tension and pulling, which disrupts pelvic organ arrangement.”
Read the study of the biotensegrity focused therapy for POP to better understand the potential benefits and limitations of this therapeutic approach.
