Scar Tissue Therapy

Combines a variety of modalities to effectively help your system integrate scar tissue and reduce the negative and dysfunctional nature scar tissue can have on your physiological and emotional wellbeing.

Scar tissue is made up of collagen fibres that replace normal tissue after an injury or surgery. However, this means it is not as strong as the previous tissue, and it contains less elastin which gives us flexibility. It is neurologically different and therefore, the quality of the scar tissue is inferior to the tissue it replaces.

As a visual, consider an iceberg, what you see on the surface is just the tip of what’s going on underneath. A scar can pull the fascia (connective tissue) in any direction on the surrounding area, taking away stability and function in areas that may seem unrelated (really anything goes here, as everyone will heal differently).

The chaotic orientation of scar tissue creates less than optimal force tensioning and can adhere to other structures – nerves, blood vessels, lymph vessels and nodes, bone, muscle, tendons and ligaments. This adherence will cause us to move differently, feel differently and act differently. The tension created by the scar creates a lot of proprioceptive input into the Motor Control Centre and after all sensory input informs motor output scars can really screw up movement patterns.

It is not unreasonable to experience symptoms far from the site of a scar. The wide spread affect on  the body should not be dismissed lightly and neither should the age of a scar.

For the really in-depth stuff here is a good research article exploring the wider spread connections and implications of scars.
