The #1 cause of musculoskeletal pain is Adhesion, otherwise known as fibrous scar bands. Adhesion develops in the muscles and areas of the body we use the most. It acts like glue causing muscles, nerves, tendons, and ligaments to stick together. This leads to decreased flexibility and weakness. As a result, this process speeds up aging by creating increased compression on your joints and cartilage.
Conditions commonly caused by adhesion are arthritis, disc degeneration, disc herniation, disc bulge, facet impingement, cartilage damage, neck pain, headaches, meniscus tear, labral tear, annular tear, nerve entrapment, shoulder impingement, sciatica, IT band syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, and the list goes on.
This concept is not new, but the treatments for it are. Doctorate and therapy programs do not offer the abundance of training needed to learn this specialty. This is why there are very few doctors around that can successfully treat these fibrous scar bands without cutting someone open. Surgery for this problem only creates more scarring during the healing process. Sounds counterproductive doesn’t it?
