While we think of scars as occurring on the surface of the skin, scar tissue also forms underneath the skin. When this happens, it can cause what we call a “fascial adhesion” — tiny threads of connective tissue that attach from the scar/skin/surface onto the body structures below. When the scar occurs over the abdomen, like in the case of c-section surgery, the symptoms that develop from scar adhesion can be quite complex. These adhesions restrict motion and cause significant issues, including persistent pain.
By treating the scar, we can correct and eliminate pain post-c-section surgery — even when surgery, PT, chiropractic, massage therapy, acupuncture, and other post-partum modalities have failed. Most patients experience 80–100% relief within just a handful of treatments.
