At my age is it even possible to reverse my prolapse?
By: Dr. Brianne Grogan, PT, DPT
Yes, reducing symptoms (and possibly even reversing your prolapse) is possible at any age! Prolapse management comes from learning how to relax and gradually strengthen your entire team of core muscles. It also requires learning lifestyle tools/techniques that help you live and move in a way that’s SAFE for your pelvic floor.
Research has proven that strength gains can be made at any age. And, in fact, it’s essential to keep moving and strengthening your body in order to maintain the health of your muscles and the integrity of your connective tissues as you get older.
Furthermore, brain science has proven that neuroplasticity occurs throughout life. In other words, the brain keeps changing as long as you continue to provide it with new input; it’s not “set” or permanently fixed at a certain age. Therefore, you can always keep learning and growing mentally, as well.
Therefore, using the exercises and educational information in the Lift program, you can substantially reduce (and possibly reverse) your symptoms no matter your age, or how long you’ve had your condition.
