Scar Tissue

Do you think scar tissue is bad for you? – Yes and No

No, because it is needed for the proper repair after a tear, strain or a sprain (only bones heal with the original tissue – calcium) everything else takes collagen (scar tissue) to repair.

Yes, because collagen does not have the characteristics of the muscle tissue (contractility, elasticity and so on). So, it is rigid and restricts the range of motion as well as weakens the muscle.

The good news is we can control the way the collagen tissue behaves. We can stretch it out, we can help it align properly and we can restore you range of motion and strength with tissue remodelling.
