How Does Physical Therapy Help After Pelvic or Abdominal Surgery?​

Physical therapy works to restore normal function to an area following surgery.  It can break up scar tissue to make sure the scar doesn't adhere and cause pain or restriction.  Scar adhesions are an extremely common source of pelvic and abdominal pain or dysfunction.

Working with a PT can also help regain strength and range of motion in the area and making sure muscles are working properly and in concert.

Physical therapy is routine after every other type of surgery to promote full recovery.  Why would pelvic or abdominal surgeries - in such a sensitive area of the body - be the exception?

Why are Scar Adhesions such an Issue Following Surgery?

Without treatment, scar tissue can adhere, or stick, to the tissue underneath, causing restrictions that can result in dysfunction and pain.  Scar tissue should move and feel just like the skin around it.  But for more than half of surgeries, scar tissue does adhere and can cause symptoms ranging from pain to constipation to incontinence.

How Soon Can we Work Together After Surgery?

We'd love to begin working with you as soon as possible after surgery, but we also work with patients who had their surgery decades ago.  Our specialists have extensive experience in working with post-surgical issues, including those from C-Sections, hysterectomies, endometriosis surgery, appendectomies, prostatectomies, vaginal tears during childbirth, and more.  

Can I Safely Return to Activities and Exercise?

Absolutely!  We want make sure you're able to safely and without pain return to exercises, activities, or anything else you want to do.  We'll help you build a solid foundation in pelvic health to ensure you can get back to your life!  


"I had been to other PTs, but they didn't have the experience or training to help me.  I highly recommend giving yourself a chance and allowing PelvicSanity to help you!"

"Within just a few PT sessions I started feeling better...Finding PelvicSanity has made a huge impact helping me attain a much lower level of pain than I thought possible."

"If you are looking for answers, you've come to the right place. After just a few treatments, I have finally gotten relief of symptoms that flew under the radar of my urologist and MDs for over 10 years!!"
