A gentle technique that can be applied to any scarring caused by surgical procedures. It can be effective on both: recent and older scarring.
Scar tissue is a natural response to the surgical procedures, injections, biopsies and drain interventions.
Collagen is laid down in the repair process, which results in a thickened fibrous mass impeding the proper circulation of blood and congests lymph flow.
A scar is non-elastic and fibrous and will have a 'dragging' and pulling effect on the surrounding tissues, including joints. Which may result in a restricted range of motion, where greater force must be applied in order to move the affected joint.
The effects of post-surgical scars on the human body cannot be underestimated. Over time, scar tissue shrinks thus creating unequal tensions within the body, which may affect blood flow, restrict movement and create inflammation. For example, A scar resulting from abdominal surgery has a dragging and pulling feeling deep in the abdomen, which may inhibit flexion, extension and rotation of the spine. Abdominal muscles work synergistically with spinal muscles, this may have a major impact on low back pain.
