What is a scar tissue problem?
After an injury, your body immediately starts to protect itself by contracting the muscles around the injury and quickly sending blood to that swollen area. Once the injured area begins to heal, both the soft tissue that was damaged, plus that in the surrounding area, starts to regrow by intertwining. This creates an even stronger area than that existing before the injury. But it is less flexible, resulting in those symptoms of a reduced range of motion and added tension to the joints where the muscle and/or tendon is attached. It can of course mean pain too.
Cross fiber massage to help
This is extremely effective and can be carried out by hand or with the help of an instrument to break up the scar tissue so the body can then re-absorb it. It is common to experience some minor discomfort during this type of massage and even minor bruising afterwards. Another way to help is with a very effective technique called Graston which some chiropractors use. While pain killers and muscle relaxers can bring temporary relief, they are of course just masking the symptoms as with so many other pharmaceutical medications, whether over-the-counter or on prescription. Always better in the long term to find a more natural solution.
