Find recovery after pelvic and abdominal surgeries by restoring normal movement and reducing pain after surgery at Inspira Physical Therapy.
How Does Physical Therapy Help After Pelvic or Abdominal Surgery?
Physical therapy can help restore normal function to an area following surgery by breaking up scar tissue so it does not cause pain or restriction. Working with a Pelvic Physical Therapist strengthens and expands the range of motion in the area.
Why are Scar Adhesions Important?
Without treatment, scar tissue can stick to the tissue underneath, causing restrictions resulting in dysfunction and pain. Scar tissue should move and feel just like the skin around it. Oftentimes after surgery, the scar tissue does adhere and can cause symptoms ranging from pain to constipation to incontinence.

Their visceral manipulation work significantly helped ease my symptoms almost immediately. In addition to her well honed skills, Dr. Melanie Carminati was committed to connecting me to the right doctors and resources to help find the root cause of my issues. Full of empathy and compassion, I always left her office not only feeling physically better, but mentally prepared to figure out my next step. I give Melanie and Inspira PT the highest recommendation!
I went to Inspira Physical Therapy for pain in my pelvis that I'd been having for a year after long hours standing at work, and she was so helpful working with me to figure out what it was. I learned a lot about my posture and how my past injury has aggravated that pain. After a few sessions, she really helped me to understand my body better and ways to prevent the pain from coming back. She is very patient and informative and I would highly recommend.
Dr. Carminati (Melanie) and Dr. Lahonda (Luidmila) both treated me successfully where others had failed, so thank you for fixing my legs. After discovering my aching legs were caused by nerve pain and not sore muscles, Melanie studied my symptoms and restored the nerve pathway by manipulating muscles and fascia and teaching me site specific exercises. I saw her 1x week for about 8 weeks.
Dr Carminati quite certainly saved my life. After years of back pain and every surgeon in the city telling me I needed surgery, Dr Carminati worked with me to almost completely reduce my pain. She also has the best bedside manner of any Dr I've ever seen and is an absolute joy. The other physical therapists and pilates instructors at the practice are also all incredible. I would give more stars if I could.
I went to Inspira every week for about four months to help resolve lower back pain.I have been to a few other physical therapy locations and this one is worth paying for to make sure you focus on improving the right areas. I will definitely go back here again for any future issues but she set me up very well for recovery.
The entire process from start-to-finish was seamless and professional. The treatment was extremely gentle and thorough. I walked in with a 40 degree angle in my left arm and she got me all the way to 25!
I highly highly recommend coming here.
I cannot sing enough high praises for Melanie at Inspira Therapy. I've had lots of PT over the years and she is , Hands Down, the best PT I've ever encountered.
Mila is amazing! So knowledgeable, sensitive and responsive...and the office staff is also great. Excellent communication and appointments are always on time.
