Scars & Adhesions


Scars and adhesions can adversely affect the structural and fascial (connective tissue) systems, sensitize the nervous system, and cause chronic pain throughout the body.

Scars are a result of the body’s remarkable power to heal itself. Scars develop when the deeper layer of skin, the dermis, is damaged. New collagen fibers are laid down at the site of the wound to repair the tissue. These fibers grow in random and unorganized patterns, forming adhesions underneath the scar itself. Adhesions can form deep within the body, and attach to muscles, bones, tendons, and even organs.  This is why scars can radiate pain to many structures to which they are connected.

Scars can misalign or cause an imbalance in any number of the systems throughout the body.  The most severe cases are those with burn victims. Doesn’t it make sense that someone with less trauma or injury can develop the same problems?  

We now have electro-medicine devices that can release these scars and adhesions that your body has produced in the healing process.
