Abdominal surgeries in women are often invasive and can lead to extended periods away from work or other responsibilities. The pain and lack of function that can follow abdominal surgery can sometimes be debilitating. It is important to care for yourself during your recovery, and physical therapy at Sovereign Rehabilitation can aid in restoring function and getting you back to your normal life as quickly as possible.
Benefits of Post-Abdominal Physical Therapy
Whether you have undergone a C-section, a hernia repair or a hysterectomy, physical therapy can make a remarkable difference in your recovery. These procedures can often weaken abdominal muscles and the pelvic floor, leading to pain, urinary incontinence, digestive issues and bloating. Weakened abdominal muscles can result in poor posture and back pain as well. Physical therapy focuses on strengthening the abdominal and pelvic muscles, different movement techniques designed to lesson pulling on the incision site and proper training of movement techniques to adopt as you continue the healing process.
Physical Therapy and Scar Tissue Relief
For many women, scar tissue that forms after abdominal surgery can lead to pelvic pain, painful intercourse and bowel or bladder obstructions. Adhesion or scar tissue can cause internal organs to bind to one another. Physical therapy has been shown to break down this scar tissue, which will aid in increased mobility of the muscles and connective tissue.
