Manual Tissue Work for C-Section Scar Improvement


When your incision heals, the scarring isn’t just on the skin surface.

Remember that just because your incision looks healed, doesn’t mean issues under the surface aren’t there or starting to compound. There is scarring to the tissue underneath the incision, and through 7 layers all the way down to the uterus.

These scar areas have restricted blood flow, and can be very sensitive to touch, but also can cause everything from pain with sex to digestive issues, even impacting how your gut health functions and how well you absorb nutrients from the food you eat.

Fortunately, scar tissue and the complications associated with it can be improved, or even corrected, by making the scar tissue more flexible. This is done with scar tissue release therapy.

As promised, here's your FREE C-Section Scar Tissue Work tutorial video, instructed by Kelly Kempley - one of our resident doctors of physical therapy, that works with us at Nancy Anderson Fitness and inside The Birth Recovery Center!

In this video, we use strategic scar tissue protocols on all three layers: skin, muscle and organ layer. Kelly guides you through an on-demand routine, that can be done right at home to help you safely manipulate your adhesion build up to become softer, which reduces tightness. These protocols will also help break up any adhesions and scar tissue, allowing you to better recover and correct issues that are stemming from one root cause post c-section: internal adhesions.

(Complete the following exercises at your own risk and always talk to your doctor beforehand)

Have you had a C-section and are now struggling to figure out how to get your stomach looking flatter, your incision looking better, and your "mommy pooch" above or below your scar to go away?

Looking for a Program that is a true, long-term SOLUTION?!

Whether you had a baby 2 months ago, or 12 years ago, my 12 week Post Pregnancy Ab Rehab Program can be effective to help you heal, flatten and strengthen your core unit (the right way), as well as improve not only the appearance of your c-section scar, but also the pain and associating issues.

The 12 week Post Pregnancy Ab Rehab Program is a full body, comprehensive approach to healing your core. Unlike other programs out there, our full body comprehensive approach includes reprogramming breathing patterns, improving posture, improving alignment, and teaches proper activation. We address mechanical restrictions like rib flare, pelvic floor dysfunction, hypertonic pelvic floor, hypotonic pelvic floor, prolapse, and correcting motor skills. Clients work privately one on one with our resident post natal experts throughout the course for assessments, form checks, feedback, customizations to their program and unlimited support.

"The scar tissue massage is life changing. I have 2 separate c-section scares and one is way worse than the other, but it's already better on Day 1!" - Tiffany R

 

"The c-section protocols & custom coaching were invaluable in helping me understand how to adjust for my unique situation and get the best possible results. I've never felt so strong and connected to my core."

-Jen T.

**BONUS: My Ab Rehab Program includes my complete C-Section Recovery Guide for FREE! ($69 Value)**

We go in depth about how your incision, scar tissue, and adhesions can impact your entire core musculature, and why having a healed scar doesn't necessarily mean you're in the clear of related issues like low back pain, urinary urgency, bladder leakage, impaired digestion, painful sex, and the pooch. These things can manifest right away or in other cases take YEARS to develop!

If You're Ready to Start Feeling like 'Yourself' Again Postpartum, Healing your Body & Confidence from the Inside Out is a Great Place to Start!

Diastasis Recti: Separation of the muscles along the midline of the abdomen and weakness of the linea alba.
 
Mommy Pooch: A result of diastasis recti or result of core dysfunction of the lower TA's
 
Improving Ab Definition and Strength: Whether you're 6 weeks post pregnancy or 16 years, your core can't heal without proper training and activation. No matter your time post partum, it's never too late to heal, improve and fix core dysfunction and weakness.
 
Incontinence: Leaking isn't cool. And although it's common, it's certainly not normal. We work to fix this in the Ab Rehab program, while also taking a look at the root cause (hint: it's not always just your pelvic floor causing the issue).
 
Back Pain: This can be caused by many things: weakness, diastasis or even c-sections. Yes, really! We cover all of that and more in this program. Ridding back pain and educating you on where this may be stemming from.
 
Confidence: This is listed last, but not least. Your body matters, and if you aren't happy with yours, we need to change that. Feeling comfortable in your own skin and confident in your appearance, strength and function has a trickle down impact on everything from our mood, our relationships and sex life. My goal is to help you feel on top of the world with your ideal Mom bod. It's 1000% ok to want your body back post baby!

Frequently Asked Questions about the 12-Week Ab Rehab Program:

 
I get A LOT of questions about this program, every day. Here are the answers to some of the most common ones to help you decide if this program is right for you!

1. WHAT EQUIPMENT IS NEEDED?

The following equipment is necessary for the course:

 

✔️ Small Exercise ball (can be a kids play ball)

✔️ Resistance Band - light to medium,

✔️ Hip Circle (circular resistance band)

✔️ A bench or an object in your home that serves as a bench (like a chair).

✔️ Foam Roller

 

[The following additional equipment is optional for the course]

 

✔️ Light-Medium dumbbell weights

✔️ TRX Band/Row


2. HOW MUCH TIME DO I NEED TO COMMIT EVERY DAY?
 
You will need to commit between 25-45 min a day for most phases. This time can increase depending upon the additional resources and supplemental workouts you use to tailor the course to your specific needs. You can also decrease the amount of time spent on the exercises once you learn the exercises, and can even the Ab Rehab Moves as you pump, drive, or watch TV.

3. WHEN CAN I START POSTPARTUM?
 
You can start the 12 Week Ab Rehab whenever you feel ready after delivery. The ACOG has updated its guidelines and now recommends that if you had a normal vaginal delivery and healthy pregnancy then a woman can start exercise after delivery when she is ready. Typically this is somewhere between 2-6 weeks post delivery. If you have had a C-Section or other complications, check with your doctor.

4. CAN I DO THIS PLAN IF I'M CURRENTLY PREGNANT?
 
You can! Actually, I recommend it. You will only work up through Phase 3 (omitting phase 4), and will be taking Full Breaths (no half breaths) during the AB Rehab Moves. I would, however, HIGHLY suggest implementing the breathing exercises daily throughout your entire pregnancy. Those are the bread and butter of the program and will help the most for conditioning your body for labor, delivery, and recovery. If you have any concerns, feel free to speak with your doctor.

5. I HAVE A TIGHT PELVIC FLOOR, IS THIS PROGRAM FOR ME?
 
Yes, most definitely! You will be working on the control aspect of your pelvic floor during the program. This means you will be working on releasing and relaxing your pelvic floor. We have additional resources for you to help you connect to your pelvic floor and learn how to relax your pelvic floor, while still reaping all the benefits of the program.

6. CAN I DO THIS IF I HAVE A HERNIA?
 
Yes, it is safe to do the program and in fact really beneficial to be able to strengthen everything around the hernia as well as make sure your core is strong and functioning optimally to help ensure the hernia does not worsen over time.

7. I HAVEN'T HAD KIDS, CAN I STILL DO THIS?

Yes! The 12 Week Ab Rehab is for anyone that experiences core and pelvic floor dysfunction ( low back pain, weak core, lower tummy pooch, leaking, pelvic pressure, diastasis, prolapse, hypertonic pelvic floor, hypotonic pelvic floor.) Whether or not you have had a baby, the plan will help to strengthen your core, flatten your tummy, strengthen your pelvic floor, and restore core function.

8. IT'S BEEN 'XYZ' MONTHS/YEARS SINCE MY LAST DELIVERY, IS IT TOO LATE FOR ME TO DO THIS AND SEE GOOD RESULTS?

Once postpartum, always postpartum. The plan is for everyone at any point in their postpartum journey. The plan is a comprehensive course that will help to strengthen your core, strengthen your pelvic floor, heal diastasis, and restore core function. Our clients see and feel results whether they are 2 weeks postpartum or even 20 + years postpartum.
 

Which brings me to my biggest question.... What are YOU waiting for?!

I built this course because EVERY mom deserves to feel like ‘home’ in her own body. To some, that has very little to do with 'looks,' and for others it has a lot to do with it. Neither is wrong. EVERY Mom is entitled to achieving and living her life as her best version of herself. That best version is determined by what’s important to HER. And healing mom from the inside out is a great place to start on that journey!
