Muscle adhesion, also commonly referred to as scar tissue, is the most common, most mis-diagnosed and most overlooked condition in musculoskeletal healthcare. Fortunately, with proper training it’s also the most fixable and reversible condition in the human body.
Adhesion acts like a collagen glue within the muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, fascia, and other connective tissues. This makes you less flexible, weaker, and leads to a variety of symptoms. If left untreated, adhesion leads to huge problems, like degeneration, tendon and muscle tears, cartilage damage, osteoarthritis, disc problems, and a road that leads to surgery. Have you ever strained a muscle before? Have you ever noticed any muscles or areas of your body that were tight, that you felt like you had to stretch all the time, just to have it tighten back up again? You likely have adhesion!
