How to approach the problem of scar tissue

In considering how to relieve constriction, pain (due to nerve impingement), numbness and possible muscle atrophy resulting from scar tissue, I use Manual Lymphatic Drainage. Scar tissue forms over the site of a wound or cut as part of the body’s natural healing mechanism. Scar tissue is connective tissue that is made of fibroblasts in newly forming scars and dense bundles of collagenous fibers in older wounds. Scar tissue becomes hard and can adversely affect the use of muscles and joints.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a slow, rhythmical, massage technique that enhances the natural flow of lymph and fluid drainage around the injured site. When used in combination with Swedish massage and applying vitamin E oil directly on the scar tissue the muscle’s normal movement is improved. Pain and numbness are reduced or eliminated and you are feeling better.
