Abdominal adhesions are bands of fibrous tissue that can form as the body begins to heal after surgery, if the scar tissue joins two internal body surfaces that are not normally connected and prevent these organs from moving freely they can lead to chronic pain, bowel construction, infertility and more
In most cases, abdominal adhesions are not problematic but specialists recommend massaging the scar area as a way to break up scar tissue.
Belly bands highly encourage all our customers both men and women to be proactive in their recovery and to talk to your health specialist regarding the long-term prevention of post surgery adhesions. For old or painful scars seek treatment from a trained professional.
