What is “Scar Tissue” and How we can help!

Home » Blog » What is “Scar Tissue” and How we can help!

Scar tissue can form in two ways; either by injury or hypoxia (a lack of oxygen to the area) and can be present anywhere in the body.

Scar tissue can occur when a muscle is torn or crushed; however, a more common way for scar tissue to form is by the soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments) not receiving enough oxygen (Hypoxia) which causes micro-tears.  The body creates scar tissue to ‘glue’ the torn pieces back together.

Any athletic pursuits, poor posture, repeated use, or sustained pressure (sitting) increases muscle tension, and restricts blood flow. When blood flow is reduced, oxygen cannot be brought to the tissues (i.e. Hypoxia). Hypoxia leads to free radicals accumulating in muscles. Scar tissue cells start to form over these free radical cells, and will eventually lay down enough to affect surrounding muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves.

At our office, Dr. Xiao uses a Chinese Acupuncture Scar Tissue Release Technique (STRT) to directly release the tissue that is binding the tissue, and causing pain. Thereby increasing blood flow and allowing the soft tissue to regenerate.
