Vancouver Chiropractor Explains Scar Tissue -- and How to Get Rid of It

Vancouver chiropractor shares how scar tissue impacts the human body in new online article

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - August 23, 2017) - As the founder of Vancitypro Chiropractic, Dr. Reza Khamneipur works with a wide variety of old and new injuries. To help patients understand the impact of scar tissue on their bodies, Dr. Khamneipur has published a blog explaining how and why the tissue forms -- and how chiropractors can help remove unwanted scar tissue.

While scar tissue is the body's response to healing from injury, the results of the new dense, fibrous tissue can be problematic for many individuals, leading to future pain and injury. Scar tissue will often impede tissues that should be mobile and move freely. As it builds up and impedes movement, muscles can become shorter and weaker. Nerves can become trapped, tension on tendons can lead to pain -- and the result is loss of motion and strength, as well as symptoms like numbness, weakness, and tingling.

It's important to understand that scar tissue is actually created when ligaments, muscles, and tendons are torn or injured -- it is the body's way of gluing itself back together. However, when the healing is done and it's time to remove the unwanted scar tissue from soft tissue, chiropractors can offer two solutions -- the Active Release Technique and the Graston Technique, which uses instruments to scrape the skin gently, along with a specialized form of massage.

By comparison, Active Release Technique uses the practitioner's thumb or hand pressure to remove scar tissue. This is done by putting the specific muscle or tissue in its contracted state, pinning down the muscle and then having the muscle go through an active or passive range of motion. Because the bad tissue is trapped under the practitioner's grip, it is forced to break up during the process.

Once the scar tissue is removed, the body can function properly again, and the results from both techniques can be incredible. As a Sports Chiropractor service in North Vancouver, Dr. Khamneipur has used both techniques. Most patients see a 30% improvement in range of motion almost instantly, and many have gone on to regain their full range of motion.

In conclusion, with the right treatment it's possible to recover from long standing injuries. For people suffering from scar tissue, chiropractic therapy can help. Call Dr. Khamneipur to book an appointment today.
