Adhesions and Myofascial release

Hi everyone! I had myofascial release done on Weds for adhesions on the intestines in left pelvis. I was wondering if anyone else has tried this and how long it takes to feel better. Really any information anyone has on this would be appreciated. I understand what it does but am not sure how long it is supposed to take to work, or how you know it worked, etc? I was very nauseous all afternoon and in pain the day I had this done. I did drink lots of water and just tried to relax as my massage therapist advised. Thurs. and Fri I was still hurting, but today it seems to be some better.

I've not had this done, but did find a few threads here regarding this method of treatment for adhesions.
Physical Therapy/Myofascial release
Pelvic Rehabilitation
Pelvic Myofacial tension

Good luck with the therapy. I hope that you will see good results and will soon find some relief from your pain.

Adhesions and Myofascial release


Thanks for these threads. I read them and now I don't know if the myofascial release will really work for me because I know my pain is from adhesions. The way this sounds they are two different things. I certainly need to speak more thouroughly to the massage therapist who is doing the myofascial release on me to see what the difference is. I will do that tommorrow. I am still hurting from our session the other hurts when I move. I am just so unsure of everything right now and I think it is because I don't have much knowledge in these areas and sure need to gain some.

Thanks so much for replying are a doll!

Adhesions and Myofascial release

I've had myo'fascial release bodywork done twice a month for a year now (at $100 session I had to limit the number). The first few were dramatic in results-I could sit comfortably for hours rather than minutes, lay flat for the first time in months, etc. It always hurts me for a day or two after but is so worth it. You'll know if it's helping you.

Thank you Health! This is good news that is has helped you so much. I have only had it once and at this point do not feel it has changed anything for me, but I know I probably need to have it done again and again for the help I am looking for.

Sherry, I have done MFR to stretch my adhesions or "restrictions" as she calls them. I am happy with the results so far, though it has taken many more sessions than I had expected. Hang in there! Shelley

Adhesions and Myofascial release

I tried it for a few months last year - unfortunately it did not workfor me - my pain continued to get worse and I needed additional surgery. I have no regrets about trying it first - I was really trying to not have more surgery and it seemed like a good therapy to try. I hope it works for you.

Didn't work for me either

I just finished a round of PT for my adhesions and unfortunatly it did not do anything for me (except hurt me more).
I had high hopes, because I had heard that it can make a world of difference, but my PT lady said she thinks that my adhesions are too thick and may need to be surgically removed...bummer.
