Mobility is a very important part of daily life that many of us take for granted. It can be diminished in an instant based on many different lifestyle choices, your past or current working environment or from injuries.

Scar Tissue

After a period of time, if not treated correctly scars and adhesions can further restrict your function and movement, making it extremely painful task to participate in things you used to be able to do with ease. When these wounds are not treated correctly, they can not only reduce your mobility, but they can have negative effects on your overall health. It is best to have them seen by a professional that can refer you to the appropriate place that can best handle your affected area.

This isn’t an uncommon issue, and many people are left dealing with these problems on a yearly basis.

An adhesion bands two parts of scar tissue or organs together. Scar tissue or adhesions develop when your body is responding to disturbances to the tissue. Adhesions can occur anywhere on the body, but can be most commonly found within the abdomen, the heart, and the pelvis.

All about three of the most common types of adhesions:

Abdominal Adhesions – usually from a complication during surgery, but can occur in some people who have never had surgery.

Pelvic Adhesions – usually occurs after C-section, hysterectomy or other infections.

Heart Adhesions – scar tissue can form around your heart which can limit its function.
