Massage for Scar Tissue Adhesion
Last year at the Third International Fascial Research Congress in Vancouver, 800+ participants silently listened and watched as Raul Rodriques PT DO, played a video of him treating a bullfighter with a nasty scar through the thigh. The audience gasped as they watched, through real-time sonoelastography imaging, layers of cross-linked fibrous connective tissue give way as Dr. Rodriques’ trained hands manipulated the adhesive layers allowing them to once again glide on one another. Although many clinicians in the audience had experienced the sensation of restoring local elasticity to injured tissue, seeing the process for the first time was spellbinding.
Manual therapy methods such as Myoskeletal Alignment Technique (MAT) may be effective in helping restore function to inflexible tissues, thus normalizing cellular metabolism and organ function. Much like the tractioning, compression, shearing, and torsioning maneuvers used by Dr. Rodriques with the gored bullfighter, MAT utilizes varying degrees of pressure and depth to release adhesions and soften or “functionalize” tough, fibrous connective tissues.
