Fixing An Inguinal Hernia

I don’t know why “pop and pray” is considered normal and acceptable.

We see it all the time, even in medicine. Evidence-based medicine turns into “suck it and see”, “trial and error”, “we will reassess you in 12 visits”, which we all know it has to be because even statistically significant doesn’t mean that everyone gets better.

We wouldn’t allow our mechanic or structural engineer to get away with “suck it and see”, so why do we let our healthcare provider?

It doesn’t have to be this way, not when you can have a method of systematic evaluation that can come up with the right result, every time.

This patient had acute low back pain getting steadily worse for one week, walking with difficulty, pain in right testicle and right SI/gluteus maximus (buttock) region. Watch this video (above) and observe as I work out exactly what the problem is and how to fix it in five minutes. I’m not saying it’s always this straightforward, but the Afferentology principles on which this kind of muscle testing is based never fail.

  1. Hi Simon, hope and trust all is well. I wanted to ask if I would still get access to the webinars when I join up? Im unable to make the live ones due to being in clinic at that time but would like to refer back to them as and when needed.

    Kind regards

  2. fascinating video thank you. I wqs wondering if you could clarify the rational behind the thinking that the treatment is directed on the hernia. I cant see your contact but would it be plausible that the changes seen are due to a myofascial release of the psoas?

    1. You’re welcome. It’s quite a long way from the psoas to the inguinal ligament, with the psoas being very deep. I know it’s difficult to see but I can assure you I was nowhere near the psoas. I was only on the inguinal ligament, starting just lateral to the pubic bone, and quite superficial.
