Scar Release Therapy
Do You Need Scar Release Therapy?
Have you ever: had surgery? Broken a bone? Sprained a ligament? Strained a muscle, needed stitches? Knee or hip replacement? If you are female have you had a C-section? If you have said yes to any of these scenarios then you have scar tissue in your body. Scars are universal and come in many different shapes and sizes from all over the body.
What Is A Scar?
Scar tissue is an inflexible fibrous tissue that is part of wound healing process that replaces normal tissue after injury or wound. Initially it is very tender to the touch and can be very painful during movement. Most wounds leave a scar and appear after healing is complete. The quality of the scar tissue varies depending on its location on. As previously mentioned scar tissue tends to be less flexible and less pliable than normal tissue and it tends to carry many pain fibres.
Do you have scar on your body? Take a moment to touch it and compare to the tissue next to it.
The appearance of scars can vary and is dependent on your age, heredity, genetics and the severity of the injury.
Here are a few different types of scars:
- Hypertrophic Scars are raised and red and do not extend beyond the boundary of the original injury.
- Keloid Scars are raised and red and extend beyond the boundaries of the original injury.
- Atrophic Scars leave depressions in the skin caused when the underlying structures supporting the skin (muscle, fat) are lost.
- Contracture Scars are often caused by burns. They are flat, tight scars that constrict movement and may go deeper, affecting muscles and nerves.
- Acne Scars are pitted, caused by the stretching of pores.
- Stretch Marks are also a form of scarring and can develop when skin is rapidly stretched (during pregnancy, significant weight gain, or adolescent growth spurts) or when the skin is put under tension during the healing process (usually near joints).
The truth is that you accumulate scars throughout your life and they impact the body in negative ways.
How Scars Negatively Affect You and Your Body
- Form Adhesions – internal scarring – puts organs in to a straitjacket effecting their function
- Cause Chronic Pain – scar is tender to touch, pain with contact
- Activates Stress – raises cortisol levels – systems over time breakdown
- Activates Trigger Points– reduces range of motion and creates pain
- Injures Fascia – restricts movement
- Impedes Circulation – increase recovery time – slows blood flow at a micro level
- Impedes Lymph Flow – decrease toxic substance removal from the body
- Impede Energy Flow – subtle decrease in overall wellbeing and mood changes.
All of this leads to an increase in stress that fires ups your sympathetic nervous system activity. This part of the Autonomic Nervous System that is responsible for your arousal of “Flight, Fright or Fight.”
Furthermore this type of “Stress” leads to:
- Decrease Libido
- Decrease Vagal Tone
- Increase Cortisone Level
- Increase Heart Load
- Decrease Muscle Recovery
- Decrease Immunity
- Increase Muscle Tone
- Increase Blood Pressure
Scars Cause Chronic Pain Throughout The Body.
The above restrictions and blockages negatively affect the body in many ways and the biggest influence is on pain. Fortunately, releasing the scar using Scar Release Therapy with Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS) can produce potent pain relieving results, which can increase mobility, reduce complications and lessen pain often found far removed from the scar site!
What Is Scar Release Therapy?
Scar Release Therapy (SRT) applies Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS), a patented solution that is based on the scientific concept of increasing skin’s inter-cellular metabolism, protein synthesis and healing functioning to re-awaken the skin’s ability to self generate. By targeting direct cellular stimulation of microcurrent waves through the scars, this simple procedure works by reducing tissue trauma, adhesions and fascia restrictions.
