Post Covid Pelvic Floor Dysfucntion
The most common symptom of coronavirus infection is a continuous cough which can last for several weeks after the initial infection. Coughing is known to put pressure on the pelvic floor muscles and increase the risk of developing stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and vaginal prolapse. There is much talk about the need for rehabilitation in people recovering from coronavirus, but so far very little on pelvic floor muscle rehabilitation specifically.
