What is scar tissue and why must we get rid of it??

By Dr. Brenda Mondragon, DC

I know you have all heard me say, "Just working through the scars!" "Breaking up the knots!"....and you all moan and try to breathe through it asking yourselves why is this necessary?!
However, after your chiropractic treatment, you feel much better and feel more flexible.
Because scar tissue is more resistant than normal tissue to movement. Scar tissue that developed through repetitive, improper joint movement, has extra collagen that is not as elastic as the surrounding, normal tissue. This leads to incorrect joint dysfunction, more scar tissue, swelling, and pain.
It is a vicious cycle that needs intervention.....i.e. the chiropractic adjustment, massage, myofascial release, green roller, stretches, etc. Increasing blood circulation to scar tissue and thus removing metabolic waste leads to healthier tissue. This combined with the chiropractic adjustment, restores proper joint motion and prevents inflammation---less pain and more flexibility!!!

  1. If you want to recover the injury and take control of your body then hire a personal trainer. A personal trainer completely knows what type of exercise and treatment is best for you. So it's important to know that hiring a personal trainer is beneficial for you.

    According to the injury recovery personal trainer Newport Beach, you should trust in yourself first and then set your targets and take actions and you will achieve your goal. Your article is very helpful for those who are suffering from a dance injury or any other injury.

    Heat treatment is very helpful for injuries. But you should use this treatment after the consult with a trainer. There are many different effective exercises for injuries. I like to read your post. Thanks for sharing nice information.
