Breaking up Scar Tissue: Definition, Healing Cycle & Treatment
What are scar tissues?
Fibrous tissue that forms when normal tissue is destroyed by disease, injury, or surgery. For example, scar tissue forms when a wound heals after a cut, sore, burn, or other skin condition, or when an incision (cut) is made into the skin during surgery. Scar tissues can be internal as damage in tendons and ligaments and can be external due to cuts and burn.
Scar Tissue Healing Cycle
Scar tissue can form from many different reasons. When the body gets injured, scar tissue will form as part of the body’s natural healing process. Once the body is done healing, the scar tissue should be re-absorbed into the body, but sometimes the scar tissue is not properly re-absorbed. This excessive scar tissue can cause the formation of knots within the muscle. With this excess scar tissue, the muscle’s functionality can be extremely limited due to loss of flexibility, loss of range of motion, and tenderness/pain. In order to restore the functionality of the muscle, the scar tissue needs to be broken up.
