As the NHS report ‘rationing’ hernia operations due to policy updates I can’t help but wonder if even half of these potential surgical patients have been recommended non-invasive treatments such as yoga, pilates, or hypopressives before considering the going under the knife.
Hypopressives is fantastic for posture, back pain and general wellbeing but also has proven results with prolapse, pelvic floor dysfunction, hernia prevention, incontinence and diastasis amongst other core and pelvic floor problems.
Help us spread the word of non-invasive treatments for back pain, hernias, prolapse and more by sharing stories like this. The more we share about alternative methods the less burden on the already stretched NHS resources and less invasive surgical procedures our family and friends will go under. You can try hypopressives for yourself with Philippa Oakley DC MChiro, a qualified Doctor of Chiropractic and certified Hypopressive trainer.
Hypopressives is a core and pelvic floor training method used in Spain, Spanish speaking countries, France and across some of Europe as a method for post natal recovery, but can benefit anyone who suffers from poor pelvic floor control. It works on a system of breathing and posture work to reset the core and gain stability in this area.
Hypopressives can help not only post natal healing, its applications are wide and varied. Clients consult us for a range of issues, including:
– Stress incontinence ( leaking when you exercise, cough or laugh)
– Back pain
– Urge incontinence
– Pelvic organ prolapse
– Sexual function
– Poor posture
– Muscle pain
Philippa is hosting a group session on Monday 30th July at 2pm-4pm where you can try hypopressives yourself. Please call reception on 01243 379693 to secure your place @ £40pp.
