What are we talking about when we say “Post Abdominal Surgery”?
Now, this is a big one. We will be generalising a little bit, but we’ll try to cover pretty much any type of surgery where a knife has cut things, key-hole, open-cut, stitched inside, taken out. All of this is relevant, so let’s get started.
We’ve noticed first-hand when trying to recover from our own abdominal surgeries there isn’t a great deal of rehab in the UK. When you come to think about this it doesn’t really make sense. Why is something termed “the core” meaning the core of the body and everything else which follows its lead, in need of less re-hab post-surgery than a knee for example?
We believe there is a missing link in the chain here and many women are wandering around lost of what to do next or just accepting that “things never felt quite right since my op”.
With any abdominal surgery – whether a hysterectomy, mesh removal, myomectomy or appendix operation just to mention a few – tissue has been cut, things expected by the body to be there have been removed (e.g. womb), things that shouldn’t have been there but have been present for some time so the body has adjusted to them have been removed (e.g. fibroids), and scar tissue has formed.
Now, when you think about it this way, the body has taken a bit of a battering. We’ve been told to recover but not how to get our alignment and correct function back to reduce additional complications, how to rebalance the musculoskeletal system to reduce ongoing pain by mobilising the body and freeing up muscles and tissue around the scar tissue for a better functioning body.
This is why we feel so passionately about this topic. There is so much missing information we’re planning to fill in for you. We want to help you where we can and show you that there is a way to help yourself.

Fitter Floor and Core – Online Course, Downloadable PDF and Video Access
Learn Hypopressives and how to use them to improve your Core weakness.
This technique is changing so many women’s lives, by focusing on our breath work and posture to help reduce abdominal pressure, strengthen the pelvic floor and improve prolapse
We use the Hypopressive technique as the base of the course alongside Pilates for prolapse and core issues to start to build strength through
the whole core safely.
When you start to feel stronger and your symptoms begin to improve the course then moves onto general functional fitness that doesn’t increase abdominal pressure but starts to get you working a bit
harder ready to get back to the exercise you love.
This course is unlike any other Core programme.
