    C-Section Scar Therapy + Rehab

    Healing from major abdominal surgery can be a lot when you are trying to take care of your baby at the same time. We make it easier by treating your scar to help reduce any symptoms you might be having.

    C-Section Rehab starts prenatally and continues at six weeks postpartum. Whether you have a scheduled c-section or are trying for a vaginal delivery and it ends up being a c-section, starting core rehab during pregnancy can help reduce and minimize issues postpartum. 

    During pregnancy we assess the back, hips, abdomen and potentially even your pelvic floor, as these muscles work with your deep core muscles. We set you up with a good home exercise program that you can continue on your own.

    Postpartum, at six weeks, we assess the abdomen for diastasis recti (ab separation) and check on, above, and below your scar for any restrictions. Treatment may include massage therapy and scar mobilization techniques at various tissue depths and pressure. We would also teach you how to take care of your scar at home as well.

    Reducing scar issues can help you go about daily life and return to physical activity without pain.
