Rehabilitation for Gilmore’s Groin

Gilmore’s Groin & Hernia Clinic

Our team of experts have established a rehabilitation programme for Gilmore’s Groin. Your consultant may recommend this programme as an alternative to surgery. Although if you do need surgery your consultant will advice the program as part of your post-operation recovery process.

When doing the exercises, it is important that you activate your “core stability” muscles which consist of stabilising your abdominal muscles and some of the lower back muscles. Our team will help guide you on how to do this and our practice nurses are available for advice if you have any concerns.
