About Scar Release Therapy
Scar release therapy should be an integral part of the healing process.
Our nervous system is comprised of 2 parts, the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system.
The sympathetic nervous system is often referred to as the fight or flight response and prepares our body for a perceived threat.
The parasympathetic nervous system, also known as rest and digest , relaxes our body and maintains balance.
Every cell in our body is controlled by our nervous system. Cells in our body normally communicate and travel freely throughout our body in order to maintain balance.
Scars disrupt biocellular communication, cause the sympathetic nervous system to become more dominant or upregulated and leads to a reversal of the normal bio electrical state of our tissue. This inhibits healing as healing occurs in the parasympathetic state.
Scars may develop as a result of many conditions some of which are surgery, injury, stitches, fractures, keloids, childbirth, episiotomy, or infection. These scars should be treated to maintain tissue mobility, prevent adhesion, and to optimize healing. Scars lead to nervous system imbalance, tissue tension, Limited range of motion, internal adhesions and disrupt circulation. This can lead to dysfunction and pain throughout the body. At Pelvicore rehab we use the Dolphin Neurostim system. This is a low amplitude DC microcurrent, it restores the polarity of scar tissue and improves bio cellular communication.Scar release therapy promotes a balanced nervous system, release of fascial restrictions and internal adhesions and improves circulation. Resolving these restrictions can improve range of motion, circulation, decrease pain, and improve overall function.
