Post C-Section Recovery: What You May Not Know

Posted by on Nov 27, 2017 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

These individuals did not often make the link between their back pain and abdominal surgery. However, the abdomen is the front of the back, and there are numerous direct and indirect links between our abdominal cavity, pelvis, lumbar, and thoracic spines. Many of these links are through ligamentous and...
