Olivia’s Hips and Bowen

Bowen therapy prevented my 3 month old daughter Olivia from having hip surgery.

Olivia was diagnosed with non clicking hip dysplasia which wasn’t relocating, therefore wouldn’t respond to conservative treatment (bracing). The surgeon told us she would need surgery at 5 months old to cut the tight tendons and ligaments, to allow the hip to relocate. This would be followed by 3 months of plaster and 3 months of bracing. The surgeon also said it would be a miracle to avoid surgery, and to return in 2 weeks for a follow up.

In that two weeks I began treating Olivia every day with the basics, pelvic and illacus. To our (and the surgeons) great surprise and relief it made the difference. Olivias hip was relocating and a conservative approach would now work. Olivia is now in a brace and her hip is improving every day.

The magic of Bowen.
