Yoga for Tight Thighs? in New To Yoga Posted February 2, 2017 @Muniko When did you get your stomach muscles cut? If they are still painful or uncomfortable, your muscles may have healed improperly. One of the things doctors worried about when I had hip surgery as a child was that happening or excessive scar tissue build up, which was why getting me mobile, but in a safe and orderly way was important. If it's limiting your mobility, you may want to go back to your doctor (kudos if you can get back in with that surgeon because he/she will know what they are looking at) and have it looked at. You may just need a referral to a physiotherapist or perhaps need therapeutic (deep pressure) massage or myofascial release therapy to put your muscles and fascia out of their funk.
