Most mom's don’t realize with C-section scars there is the scarring that you see on the outside at the incision site and the scarring you can’t see on outside.

A C-section is powerful because of its geographical location on the body. The essence of life resides there.
The scarring you can’t see on the inside is called adhesions. Adhesions are the primary culprits for much of the chronic pain and dysfunction faced by women who’ve undergone a C-section. Adhesions can cause pain, distortions, skeletal misalignment & organ dysfunction.
Women who have had a C-section sometimes develop Small Bowel Obstruction, a condition where the intestinal tract is kinked and twisted by adhesions. They also connect to our fascia, the web-like structure that connects all organs and tissues in our bodies. When they connect to our fascia, they can distort it, pulling muscles and pinching nerves. This limits our ability to move freely, and heightens the sensitivity of the autonomic nervous system, which controls our pain.
Millions of abdominal surgeries are performed every year, such as C-sections, appendectomies, hysterectomies, and tummy tucks. The biggest problem is that not many women are aware of the risks that adhesions pose until after they’ve gone under the knife.
How can MPS Microcurrent Point Stimulation Therapy help?
The Dolphin Neurostim™ is a focused DC Microcurrent device that stimulates tissue healing. It is applied to each side of visible scars, transferring gentle, DC microcurrent deep into the tissue of the skin.
When the microcurrent enters our body, it helps electrically to “repolarize,” or release, the thickened scar tissue, as well as release fascia and muscles impinged by the scarring.
Circulation is also increased, which, in turn, helps the lymphatic system remove dead cells from the body and encourages blood flow and healing to the area. All of this helps return mobility, improve appearance, and decrease pain both at the site of the scar and anywhere else in the body that scar may be affecting.
In general, this treatment is completely painless. The duration of treatment will depend on how long you’ve had the scar, how deep it is, and the severity of any pain you may be having. There is no expiration date on scar release.
The Dolphin is Health Canada and FDA approved for over the counter use and it is often covered by extended health plans.
