I have hernia/prolapse
No exercise program can or should claim to cure or ‘fix’ a hernia or prolapse. These conditions should ALWAYS be diagnosed and treated according to your medical Doctor’s recommendations and advice. Please read our full medical disclaimer here.
MUTU System’s Core workouts and breathing exercises, progressed gradually, mindfully and over time, are gentle, restoring and healing. They are likely to be an ideal complement to your Doctor’s recommendations but you should always get their approval before you begin your MUTU System program or any other exercise program/regime.
It is likely that your doctor will recommend you avoid all intensive exercise should you be diagnosed with a hernia or prolapse. Should this be the case and you have permission from your doctor to begin MUTU System, you should follow only the Core workouts, food guidance and breathing cues in each module (omitting the Intensive workouts).
You should of course seek and follow your medical caregiver’s advice regarding diagnosis and options for treatment for these conditions. Severity and necessity of medical intervention vary widely and should be discussed with your Doctor. We cannot provide medical advice or opinion on anybody's personal medical condition.
Hernia, prolapse and diastasis recti are all results of excessive intra-abdominal pressure. This means that your abdominal and pelvic cavity cannot withstand the pressure within, resulting in pushing away, out or down at the weakest points – such as your pelvic floor or the midline of your abdominal muscles. By adjusting your alignment to allow your body to support itself more effectively and your muscles to work optimally, along with learning to connect with and engage the deep muscles of your core and pelvic floor… you can enable your core to become stronger and more stable. You can read more about hernia here. You'll also find information about Pelvic Organ Prolapse here.
If you suspect you have a hernia or prolapse please see your Doctor before commencing any exercise program. You may be referred to a specialist physiotherapist. The core sections of MUTU System is likely to be safe for you, but should be conducted only with your health care provider’s knowledge and blessing.
If you are suffering with hernia, pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or any pelvic or abdominal discomfort or pain, MUTU Holdings Limited expressly recommends you do not start this, or any exercise program without individual medical diagnosis and advice. You can find out more about referring to a specialist women's health physical therapist on this page of our website.
