Section 1: Abdominal Adhesions – Understanding the Condition

Before delving into our innovative therapy treatment solution, it’s essential for you to grasp the intricacies of this debilitating condition. This comprehensive document aims to address any questions or concerns you may have regarding our non-surgical therapy treatment solution.

Abdominal adhesions, a condition often referred to as “Frozen Abdomen,” can arise following a spectrum of abdominal surgical procedures, encompassing appendectomy (appendix removal), cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal), hysterectomy, cesarean section, midurethral/transvaginal mesh insertion, cosmetic lipectomy, colorectal cancer colectomy, and colostomy, among others.

Additionally, they may manifest as a consequence of post-surgical complications as infection, peritonitis, from chronic inflammation stemming from conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and Crohn’s disease, and surprisingly from persistent stress.

Fascia is an extremely robust yet pliable type of connective tissue, predominantly comprised of collagen and elastin fibers, forming the outer structural layer of every organ in the abdominal cavity.

While collagen provides the necessary strength to shield and safeguard these sensitive organ’s internal cellular components, elastin confers the unique capability to stretch and contract, forming each organ’s unique shape, yet permitting the vital oscillating motions necessary to execute their unique functions.

For example, the stomach, small intestine, colon, bladder, and gallbladder all move through their own unique motility, peristalsis, and expansion/contraction functions, yet maintain their unique forms.

Even more, fascial tissue encompasses and protects muscles, ligaments, blood vessels, arteries and veins, not just in the abdominal cavity but throughout the entire body.

Fascial tissue serves as the architectural foundation of the body, binding, protecting, shaping, and enduring the daily forces exerted on the body parts it envelops.

Understanding its role is pivotal in comprehending the complexities of abdominal adhesions and the efficacy of our therapeutic treatment approach.

Abdominal Adhesion Case Study Report

Between 2015 to 2024, Glenn J Cameron RMT. Chronic Pain Therapy at Innovative Therapy Canada conducted an exhaustive study based on 20 individuals receiving extracorporeal shockwave therapy to treat Abdominal Adhesions… here are the conclusions:

Section 2: Understanding Abdominal Adhesions/Fascial Adhesions

Myofascial adhesions, commonly known as adhesions, manifest as regions of severely hardened and adhered fascial fibers amidst otherwise healthy elastic fascial tissue.

Their ratio of collagen and elastin changes resulting in more inflexible collagen fibres, and less elastic, pliable elastin fibres. The result is a phenomenon where normally straight healthy fibres see an influx of new collagen fibres that twist and bind other fibres together like a glue forming an intricate weave of cross-bridged collagen fibers effectively changing the tissue structure.

These adhered fascial fibres form an intricate weave of dysfunctional, inelastic, fibrotic, and ischemic bands or large regions within the organ’s fascial connective tissue layers and throughout the muscles of the abdomen.

The term “adhesion,” commonly associated with glue, aptly describes this phenomenon.


Adhesions & The Organs of the Abdominal Cavity

Adhesions typically form in the fascial tissue layers due to excessive and repetitive strain activity on its fibers. The adhering and cross-bridged collagen fiber influx is the body’s unique method of protecting the structures it encompasses from experiencing damage.

This would explain why abdominal adhesions form in response to repetitive strain on its fascial outer tissue from chronic stress, infection, or chronic inflammatory conditions, but why from abdominal surgery. Science can’t answer this question, but we have developed a theory of why adhesions form based upon our many years’ experience finding and disintegrating adhesions throughout the body responsible for chronic pain. We surmise that whenever a surgeon incises the abdominal muscles to gain access to the abdominal cavity, then incise an organ to rectify a condition, the body’s inherent defense mechanism sees this as a trauma, or shock to the organs in the abdomen.

The same would be true for laparoscopic invasions into the abdomen as well, whether through the abdomen, umbilicus, vagina or rectum.

The solar plexus and vagus nerve networks are constantly monitoring conditions in every organ in the abdomen and react accordingly to maintain homeostasis. Vomiting is this nervous system’s reaction whenever receptor cells report a problem with the stomach, so the system expels the stomach’s contents to rectify a perceived problem.

Incisions, whether they be direct or laparoscopic are seen as a threat to the abdomen and thus adhesions begin to form not only in the incised organ, but anywhere the nervous system wants to protect.

Adhesions manifest differently in everyone, and form at different times following surgical procedures. In any event, adhesions will form to protect the organs and in some form in the abdominal wall to even protect it.

These myofascial adhesions exert considerable and potentially damaging compression/torsion/elongation forces on entrapped abdominal organs, trigger heightened sensory responses, disrupt vascular and lymphatic circulation, compress nerves, and significantly reduce muscle length, thereby impacting the normal function of organs and abdominal muscles.


Some symptoms potentially experienced include:

  • Intense abdominal cramps
  • Pulling sensations in abdominal muscles leading to a flexion contracture posture
  • Inability to eat, resulting in hazardous weight loss and malnutrition
  • Severe bloating and pain following even small food intake
  • Persistent acid Reflux
  • Chronic constipation
  • Pronounced centralized pain at the xiphoid process post-meals
  • Headaches
  • Heart Palpitations/arrythmia
  • Nausea
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Cognitive fog
  • Small intestinal bowel obstruction
  • Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Pelvic Pain Syndrome and Pudendal Neuralgia
  • Lymphatic congestion in the abdomen and/or lower limbs
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Difficulty bending to lift objects
  • Excruciating pain episodes lasting days, confining to bed rest
  • Chronic persistent genital arousal disorder
  • Lower limb paresthesia and neurological efferent motor weakness
  • Persistent point-specific abdominal pain
  • Unrelenting urinary tract infections unresponsive to medication
  • Difficulty breathing

Section 3: Our Research Linking Abdominal Adhesions, Nervous System Dysfunction, and Chronic Pain

Our 8-year-long research study, completed in 2024, verified the efficacy of our non-surgical therapy treatment solution for abdominal adhesions. This study also confirmed our suspicions regarding the role of these adhesions in chronic systemic inflammation and pain.

Since 2008, we have been successfully disintegrating abdominal adhesions and other adhesions throughout the body. In recent years, we have recognized that these adhesions were responsible for chronic systemic inflammation and chronic generalized or specific pain in some patients. We observed numerous painful symptoms that seemed unrelated to abdominal adhesions but were in fact found to be involved. This has led us to formulate an explanation.

The brain and its neurological connections, including the solar plexus and vagus nervous system, communicate with every cell in the abdominal cavity, including organs, blood vessels, the lymphatic system, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Abdominal adhesions cause both solar and vagus nerve axons to report issues with the various abdominal organs and structures. This can trigger a compensatory inflammatory reaction, similar to what the body experiences with any injury or soft tissue dysfunction.

The nervous system can release substances called neuropeptides, which essentially activate the inflammation system, leading to unwanted inflammation in the abdomen and, for some patients, in other body regions. These neuropeptides can also adversely affect blood vessels, increasing lymphatic fluid activity. This disrupts normal nerve and cellular function, builds pressure in tissues, and irritates pain receptors called nociceptors, causing chronic pain.
For instance, many patients treated for abdominal adhesions reported symptoms such as back pain, breathing difficulties, chronic fatigue, and severe episodes of full body incapacitation lasting for many days. These symptoms were completely eliminated once our abdominal adhesion treatment was completed. We observed the total elimination of inflammation in affected body regions, the disappearance of peripheral nervous system symptoms like restless legs, and a significant return of energy, among other improvements.

Eliminating abdominal adhesions restores normal solar plexus and vagus nerve function, prompting the brain to halt its aberrant reactions that cause chronic pain and inflammation in some idiopathic cases.

Our research has unveiled a crucial link between some chronic pain conditions and abdominal adhesions, providing an exciting realization that for many individuals suffering from idiopathic chronic pain, abdominal adhesions may be the underlying cause and thus the focus for effective treatment.

Section 4: Our Treatment Technology

We utilize a unique version of extracorporeal shockwave therapy technology (ESWT) to solve abdominal adhesions.

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy, initially developed in the 1980s to fragment kidney stones (lithotripsy), has evolved over time.

We utilize EMS Swiss Dolorclast acoustic shockwave technology, original developers of the technology that emerged in the late 1990’s.
It produces the most effective and deep penetrating impulses among all acoustic shockwave generators worldwide by propelling a metal projectile with high pressure compressed air (up to 120 PSI) through an exceptionally long cylinder within the applicator to strike an alloy tip. These impulses, akin to those used in diagnostic ultrasound, are transmitted to the body through a conductive gel. They create a distinctively high-pressure wavefront, triggering rapid expansion of blood/lymphatic gas molecules, inducing a cavitation vacuum effect within intricately interlinked fascial fibres, succeeded by a swift cavitational implosion force.

This rapid expansion and implosion wave cycle (shockwaves) results in the creation of beneficial fascial adhesion tissue disruption effectively degrading the collagen bonds of adhered fibres, causing them to disintegrate. Physiologically, healthy tissues such as nerves, smooth muscle of organs, outer fascial layers, ligaments, tendons, blood vessels, and lymphatic channels possess varying degrees of elasticity and can expand without repercussions as shockwaves traverse their cellular structures.

We have been utilizing EMS shockwave therapy technology since 2008 and have safely administered over 260 million shockwaves solving various chronic pain conditions changing the lives of thousands.

Section 5: Our Innovative Therapy Treatment solution

Treatments typically take 75 minutes to complete with between 4-8 in total to fully break apart every adhesion.

We begin the first therapy treatment by targeting only ½ of the abdomen guided by healthcare professionals’ recommendations, predominant symptoms, or our palpation skills.

A gel is applied to the skin allowing acoustic waves penetration into the abdomen. An acoustic wave applicator is positioned on the abdomen over an identified adhesion and a button depressed thus starting the acoustic wave generation and cavitational process.

Treatments begin slowly with low intensity acoustic waves, so you become accustomed to the treatment process, especially important for those experiencing severe pain and dysfunction.

During treatments you will feel slight pressure in the abdomen as the collagen bonds of an adhesion are broken apart, and immediate release of symptoms experienced.

The applicator is constantly repositioned over the adhesions every few minutes as our palpation skills detect its progress disintegrating the adhesions below.

For the first time you will realize where various painful symptoms you have been experiencing originated, as they increase in intensity slightly during cavitation, then decrease as the collagen bonds are broken apart.

As we progress, all sessions target the entire abdomen with increasing intensity and depth.

After the first few treatments, you may experience tenderness, bruising, and swelling as the acoustic waves dissolve the collagen bonds responsible for the adhered fibers. This reaction provides tangible evidence of the underlying issues, often undetectable by standard imaging technologies.

As we approach the end of the treatment cycle, we focus on clearing any remaining fibers in specific regions to finalize the process. Treatment frequency is flexible, depending on your preference for returning to normalcy.

Unlike surgery, our therapy prevents the reformation of released fibers. Relief is typically immediate after each session, with reduced abdominal pressure, alleviated pain, improved bowel movements, or enhanced posture.

Our therapy has empowered numerous individuals to break free from the grip of adhesions, enabling a life without pain and suffering. Many have experienced profound transformations, embracing a future filled with relief and vitality, thanks to our innovative approach.

Section 6: Your Next Step
