Scar tissue is fibrous tissue that forms when normal tissue is destroyed by disease, injury or surgery. It is made of collagen, a protein that helps hold the body together.
Problems caused by scar tissue:
The difference between our normal, healthy collagen and scar tissue is that scar tissue is laid down in random, haphazard ways with reduced elasticity rather than in directions that help give your tissues strength.
Fibrous internal and external scar tissue can also reduce blood and lymph flow to the area, prolonging healing time further.
Scars can cause pain or discomfort, dragging sensations, fascial pulling and altered sensation due to adhesions and possible nerve damage or entrapment.
They can also have an effect on the whole body, limiting movement or causing compensatory issues in other areas.
