Adhesions form anywhere in the body, including the abdomen and pelvis – the area between the ribs and the pubic bone. Like adhesions elsewhere in the body, abdominal adhesions can act like a straight-jacket, binding organs to other structures when they should be able to move freely around each other. Adhesions can also squeeze parts of organs or entire organs, decreasing function and sometimes causing pain.
Adhesions can slow, or totally stop the movement of food through our digestive tract, creating a life-threatening condition called a small bowel obstruction (SBO). Adhesions can trap excess bacteria sometimes found within the intestine – (SIBO, or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) – decreasing or eliminating the effectiveness of medications.
SBO treatment: When published studies showed we could open fallopian tubes blocked by adhesions, we began developing therapy to clear the adhesions that cause bowel obstructions. We have had success with these cases for almost a decade. You can read about our success in this area in published studies, and at our Bowel Obstruction website page.
SIBO treatment: We found we could help SIBO when physician-experts in the condition came to us, asking for our help. They said “We can treat the excess bacteria with effective medications, but if there are adhesions in the intestines, the SIBO just returns.” They began referring patients with SIBO, and the results have been excellent. The combination of clearing bowel adhesions along with pharmaceutical and/or natural ingredients to stop the overgrowth turns out to be ‘just what the doctor ordered’ for many patients with SIBO.

The hands-on therapy at Clear Passage focuses on decreasing the adhesions (internal scars) that form when the body heals. Published studies show strong results, without the need for surgery or drugs.

Experience – We have been treating adhesions in the body since 1989. We hand-pick each therapist based on years of manual therapy experience, courses attended before we train them, reviews from referring physicians and patients, and compassion. We train each extensively in the therapy we have researched and developed over the course of two decades. Our therapists average over 26 years of manual therapy experience.
Procedures – We have developed our treatment over 26 years with two goals: safety and effectiveness. We screen each patient for contraindications to therapy. We have treated hundreds of complex cases and conditions; we often consult with physicians and scientists throughout the treatment process to ensure the positive outcomes. Our procedures are safe and tailored to each patient’s needs.
Risks – We avoid risks due to our thorough screening process. The major risk is temporary soreness. Side-effects of therapy are generally positive, including increased function and decreased pain.
Success rates – Our success rates are peer-reviewed and published, and our success with long-term outcomes is encouraging. View our success rates here.
With published studies and citations in a dozen respected medical journals, Clear Passage is the Gold Standard in the world for decreasing abdominal adhesions non-surgically. Study data authored by independent physicians support our credibility, efficacy, and success rates.
