Your Cesarean scar can cause symptoms of:
urinary frequency or urgency
pain with lifting/carrying
shelf like appearance (tummy pooch)
difficulty engaging your abdominals
contribute to orthopedic pain as low back pain, hip pain and pubic bone pain
Scar mobility can improve coordination and function of your abdominal muscles and reduce pain and pulling sensation
