Years of activism have made women’s health a topic of everyday conversation. The mechanics of mammograms and the pros and cons of cervical cancer vaccines are familiar, but one common health problem that affects millions of women remains virtually unknown. Time, gravity and childbirth can weaken a woman’s pelvic floor muscles and stretch out the ligaments that hold up her uterus, bladder and/or bowel, causing the organs to sag and bulge into the vagina—or even protrude from it—a disorder known as pelvic organ prolapse (POP).

The symptoms depend on which organs are bulging and how much. Gynekologinen verkko repi virtsarakkoa ja virtsatiehyen – Ovatko lantionpohjan laskeuman hoidossa käytetyt verkot terveysriski?

That is why I am angry with this board.

I had a headache that lasted for years. It was there when I woke up and there when I went to sleep.

I got so used to it that one day, when my husband, bemoaning a rare headache, asked if we had any painkillers, I realized that for me the exceptional day was not having a headache.

PERINEOLOGY - Groupement Européen de Périnéologie. Diagnosis and Management of Piriformis Syndrome: An Osteopathic Approach. Abstract Piriformis syndrome is a neuromuscular condition characterized by hip and buttock pain.

This syndrome is often overlooked in clinical settings because its presentation may be similar to that of lumbar radiculopathy, primary sacral dysfunction, or innominate dysfunction. The ability to recognize piriformis syndrome requires an understanding of the structure and function of the piriformis muscle and its relationship to the sciatic nerve. The authors review the anatomic and clinical features of this condition, summarizing the osteopathic medical approach to diagnosis and management. A holistic approach to diagnosis requires a thorough neurologic history and physical assessment of the patient based on the pathologic characteristics of piriformis syndrome.

Piriformis syndrome is a peripheral neuritis of the sciatic nerve caused by an abnormal condition of the piriformis muscle.1 It frequently goes unrecognized or is misdiagnosed in clinical settings.
