Soft Tissue Adhesions

Soft tissue adhesions are fibrous bands that form after prolonged poor posture or body mechanics, or after an injury or surgery. They can form between tissues and organs that are normally not connected. Adhesions are internal scar tissue, and the term “adhesions” is used when the band extends from one tissue to another. Adhesions are part of the body’s natural healing process.  It usually forms due to an injury sustained on adjacent surfaces. 

Most soft tissue adhesions will cause any immediate issue, but they can create issues further down the road. The two separate surfaces that are connected by the adhesion may be limited in their movement and may cause organs to become twisted of pulled.
