A hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus. Depending on the case, the surgeon may elect to leave the cervix and/or ovaries.
Removing an organ from the pelvis causes internal and external scarring and changes the dynamics of support and pressure for other organs. Pain may result from adhesive scar tissue pinching nerves or affecting the mobility of nearby structures. Common complaints include lower back pain, pain at or inside the incision, pain with intercourse, bladder problems, and digestive issues.
Fortunately, scar tissue after hysterectomy can be successfully treated using myofascial release. Core stabilization can be relearned using neuromuscular reeducation of the affected muscles. Function and comfort can be regained to help you recover your quality of life.
