Abdominal scar tissue and back pain
Many people have had abdominal surgery such as appendectomy and caesarean section. Abdominal scar tissue and adhesions have been shown to cause further symptoms many months and even years post-surgery or injury affecting both digestion and elimination. However, abdominal scar tissue and adhesions can also be implicated in back pain where lack of tissue mobility anteriorly can affect posterior function and stability. Once compromised, the thoracolumbar fascia affects gait and creates further strain patterns between the upper and lower body. This masterclass will provide insight into the anatomy of scar tissue, adhesions and the thoracolumbar fascia. It will also provide effective myofascial techniques to help restore function as part of a clinical treatment approach.
