Pelvic prolapse and back pain

Posted by Darlia @darlia, May 6, 2022

I'm trying to find out if having bladder, rectal and vaginal prolapses is what's contributing to back pain including pain that feels like sciatica. Looking for some facts.
Thank you

Hello @darlia. I am actually wondering if the correlation may stem from weak pelvic floor muscles, as prolapse and low back pain are known to both stem from that. Here is a link to the Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Program that may give you more information that could be helpful.

– Mayo Clinic Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Program in Minnesota:

Have you researched pelvic floor muscles previously?


I have read up on this because I am supposed to have surgery to fix it. One of the symptoms of this condition is lower back pain


I had pelvic/rectal prolapse a yr ago and had to have surgery to fix it but there are many different options yo have it fixed just depends on how severe it is. I seen a urologist for it and the recovery was 6-8 weeks. Then I did some pelvic floor physical therapy.
