I'm considering/I have had abdominal surgery

Any abdominal surgery you have had or are considering causes significant trauma, resulting in loss of sensitivity and necessitating healing. MUTU System core restoration exercises are gentle, restorative and will aid healing initially, then progress to strengthening with improved function and tone. Whilst surgery can ‘fix’, it won’t give function or strength, so pre or post-surgery are both a beneficial time to begin with the core elements of MUTU System.

Obviously, you should follow the instructions of your surgeon and medical caregivers regarding when and how to exercise before and after surgery.

All intensive or high impact workouts should be avoided following surgery (as instructed by your doctor), but the gentle progression of core exercises, followed by a slow transition to no and low-impact exercises with an emphasis of alignment and core stability, will benefit your recovery and return to strength.
