New neuromuscular treatment for Hiatus hernia shortens intervention times for Healthcare Professionals and patients

Swedish Associate Professors Thomas Franzén and Mary Hägg have written a book chapter for IntechOpen, the world’s leading publisher of Open Access books. The conclusions are that reflux is most commonly caused by Hiatus hernia and that this can be treated successfully with neuromuscular training. The treatment also shortens intervention times for Healthcare Professionals as well as patients.

IntechOpen is the world’s leading publisher of Open Access books. Their community includes key opinion leaders from the international academic and scientific community, including several Nobel Laureates.

The recently published book chapter is written by Associate Professor and Senior Consultant Surgeon Thomas Franzén, Linköping University, together with Associate Professor Mary Hägg, Uppsala University. The chapter discusses reflux-based diseases and their current treatments and presents IQoro – a new neuromuscular training device – as an effective non-invasive treatment as an alternative to either long-term medication or surgery. Prior to publication, the book chapter was peer-reviewed by IntechOpen’s prestigious panel of clinicians and academics.

Reflux can be treated successfully with neuromuscular training

More than 20% of the population suffer with symptoms of reflux. The main conclusions of the publication are that reflux-based conditions are almost always caused by an underlying Hiatus hernia in which the stomach intrudes into the chest cavity through weakened musculature in the diaphragm; and that this can be successfully treated by neuromuscular training with IQoro.

– Our book chapter shows that smooth muscles can be stimulated via the autonomic system in the same way as voluntary commands can train skeletal muscles. The key is neuromuscular training that reaches and provokes the brainstem, says Associate Professor Mary Hägg.

Time-saving treatment performed by the patient

– Patients self-training is the most effective treatment that we can hope for in terms of use of clinical resource. The treatment can start immediately, before full internal examinations can even be scheduled. This is especially relevant in the current pandemic where waiting lists for referrals for internal examinations or possible surgery are impossibly long. This means there is valuable time to be saved, for both Healthcare Professionals as well as for patients, says Associate Professor and Senior Consultant Surgeon, Thomas Franzén.
