In brief: Usually abd/pelvis

Adhesions can occur in other locations, but the most common occur in the abdomen and pelvis.

In brief: Abdominal adhesions

Abdominal adhesions can lead to surgical interventions, so they are discussed more frequently.
However, adhesions are part of the healing process and can occur anywhere in the body. Typically scars/adhesions are without symptoms.
