WHAT IS SCAR TISSUE AND HOW IS IT RELATED TO CHRONIC PAIN?
Scar Tissue is normal tissue that has undergone derangement on virtually every level that tissue can be deranged. Bottom line; this means that Scar Tissue is dramatically different from normal tissue on many different levels. Scar Tissue is different than normal tissue in these distinct ways.
As you can see, Scar Tissue is dramatically different than normal tissue on almost every conceivable level. Now let's add to this the fact that much ---- if not most --- of the Scar Tissue that plagues people on a day to day basis is in the FASCIA. Throw in the fact that Fascia cannot be seen with current MRI technology, and it makes for the PERFECT STORM of Chronic Pain. Ultimately, Scar Tissue can cause numerous CHRONIC PAIN SYNDROMES that all too often leave doctors scratching their heads, accusing patients of malingering, being drug seekers, or both.
The really cool thing though, is that for many of you reading this there is hope. SCAR TISSUE REMODELING is a great way to effectively deal with many of the problems mentioned throughout this post. This becomes an almost "Code Red" situation once you understand that the INFLAMED LIFESTYLE you've been living is either causing or heavily contributing to your problem (HERE). If you feel that Scar Tissue might be part of your Chronic Pain issue, I would suggest you take a few moments to learn more by watching some of our VIDEO TESTIMONIALS.
