Orthopedic Body Work

Orthopedic BodyWork is precise manual therapy focused on (non-surgical) scar tissue rebuilding in ligament tendon and muscle tissue. Scar tissue replaces original tissues in the aftermath of some degree of injury. For various reasons, scar tissue can form like a cotton ball with fibers in all directions, with no real organization to them. This poorly formed tissue does not transmit fluid or force well, is vulnerable to repeated injury, and often contributes to persistent patterns of tension and pain, throughout the body. Focused and appropriate manual therapy helps scar tissue transform from that cotton ball to something more like a handful of straws with fibers, largely going in one direction. This new and improved scar tissue is the closest to the original tissue, and should allow most people to enjoy improved mobility, strength, resistance to injury, and reduced or eliminated scar tissue related pains.
