The body forms scar tissue as a natural response to trauma, when the skin is damaged, lacerated or punctured, either by accident or by elective intervention, such as; piercings or surgery. Collagen laid down during the repair process results in a thickened, fibrous area which can often create a dragging or pulling effect, not just within the surrounding tissues, but also throughout the whole system, which may lead to altered function being referred elsewhere, such as; an appendix scar leading to back pain.
However, as all scars are a lasting representation of a traumatic episode there also tends to be an on-going emotional impact bound up in any scar, no matter how seemingly innocuous. MSTR is an amazing advancement in the treatment of scar tissue which has been shown to improve the function of the scar, potentially release the trauma bound within it and possibly, under some circumstances, even change its appearance, to a greater or lesser degree. This technique can be used to address scars as a consequence of; caesarean sections, hysterectomies, spinal surgery, traumatic injuries, head wounds, keyhole surgeries, amputations, body piercings, burns and in some cases may also be helpful where dense fibrous tissue is present, such as in; plantar fasciitis, frozen shoulder, tendon tears, axillary web syndrome and dupuytren’s contracture.
