Scar tissue treatment is a critical component of eliminating pain and optimizing physical performance. When you have an injury or surgery that creates a scar, the communication between the brain and that region is altered. Even long after an injury or surgery, when the scar itself appears fully healed, the site of trauma is still sending faulty information to the brain. The brain responds accordingly by creating pain or dysfunction in muscles and joints. For example, women often report that after a c-section, they never feel like they regain the ability to use their abdominals, and they complain of chronic low-back or hip pain. After identifying and clearing the specific sources of faulty information in and around the scar, the client is instantly able to use the abdominal muscles again, and normal, pain-free movement is restored.
In addition to neurological corrections, we also treat scars using The STRAIT Method™, a manual therapy technique that releases fascia by separating and realigning the adhered tissues of the scar. This technique not only improves the function of the muscles and other tissues around the scar, but can also result in a dramatic improvement in the appearance of the scar itself.
At Denver Pain and Performance Solutions, we use a number of advanced techniques to eliminate pain, improve performance, and restore healthy movement.
