What We Treat For Abdominal Problems
Treating Abdominal Problems
The hands-on therapy at Clear Passage®️ focuses on decreasing the adhesions (internal scars) that form when the body heals. Published studies show good results without surgery.

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 an internal glue or a straitjacket, 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 from larger tubes, the intestines. We have had success preventing repeat bowel obstructions for over 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. When you decrease the adhesions, the treated bacteria can finally exit the body.” They began referring patients with SIBO, and the results have generally 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.

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, their palpation and treatment skills, their focus, and their compassion. We train each extensively in the therapy we have researched and developed over the course over three decades.
We have developed our treatment over 30+ years with two goals: safety and effectiveness. We screen each patient for contraindications to therapy. We have treated several thousand complex cases and conditions.We often consult with physicians and scientists throughout the treatment process to ensure the positive outcomes. Our procedures have been documented as safe. They are tailored to each patient’s needs.
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, increased range of motion, and decreased pain.
Our success rates are clear. They are peer-reviewed and published. Our success with long-term outcomes is encouraging. View our success rates.
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.
Clear Passage®️ constantly strives to measure our results scientifically and share them with the public – as reported in peer-reviewed medical journals. We have been researching and developing our therapy since 1989; our success rates are documented and housed in the U.S. Library of Medicine. Over the course of 30+ years, we have worked with physicians, surgeons, and scientists to develop a therapy that has been shown to be safe and effective.
