I have found in my clinical practice that the LPF hypopressives are an invaluable tool for patients to help themselves. The program helps to reset the “core connection” improving the recruitment and tone of the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles. I treat a number of women with pelvic health issues and find the Hypopressives to be very helpful in treating urinary stress incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. With regards to prolapse, women will often report that the heaviness or bulging in their perineum has improved if not resolved, and on internal examination, the findings are verified.
I have also found that Hypopressives are very effective in the treatment of lumbo-pelvic-hip & thoracic dysfunctions. A photograph of a before and after picture of their posture can produce the “Wow Factor” as it can significantly improve posture. Clients will also often report feeling stronger in their “core”, allowing them to move and function with greater ease. In addition to helping their primary condition, patients often report an overall feeling of well being and increased energy—some clients have indicated they use this as their “perk up” in the morning, instead of a cup of coffee.
