If you really are proned to adhesions, my opinion is massage therapy and or Physical therapy will possibly make things worse...Everyones body is different of course.. I've tried a little of everything, but what worked the best for me is finding a Surgeon who knew about Adhesions and was up on the latest barriers.  Taking it easy for a fair amt of time after surgery also worked... You will hear a lot of advice from this siite.. use what's good for you~
