Suffering from the Effects of Abdominal Surgery?

By:

Vidhi Shastri, PT, CFMT

After abdominal surgery, it is very common for patients to have symptoms like heart burn, acid reflux, constipation, bloating, incontinence, core weakness, low back pain or neck pain.

While it may seem unrelated, these symptoms may be a sign of restrictions in the organs...Usually a side effect of surgery.

Every surgery (even “minimally invasive”) can lead to restrictions within the connective tissues. This can cause myofascial restrictions which can create musculoskeletal problems, nerve symptoms and even visceral symptoms (Acid reflux, breathing issues, bloating, constipation, etc).

Hands on (manual) therapy is a very powerful tool that can clear restrictions, not only in the myofascial system, but also in the organs themselves.  This treatment can help prevent scar tissue, muscle and joint issues, nerve problems and fluid imbalance. Manual treatment also has the ability to help prevent the need for certain surgeries (like hernia repair, gallbladder removal) by improving the mobility and motility of the organs by reinforcing homeostasis.
