In brief: No sympt? do nothing
See your doc. If you have no symptoms, e.
g. Recurring pain, or blockages, then no need to do anything. Got symptoms? Individualized evaluation and treatment. Sometimes surgery is done for obstruction due to adhesions. The surgery cuts (lyses) the problem adhesions, but the surgery causes new adhesions which may or may not become a problem in the future..

In brief: Nothing
You do nothing for abdominal adhesions unless they are symptomatic.
The type of symptoms you would have is nausea or vomiting, abdominal bloating and pain from a small bowel obstruction caused by an adhesion. If this happens you need to go to the er for nasogastric decompression or surgery to lyse the adhesions.
