Scar tissue is a collection of cells and collagen, created by the body when it is trying to repair damaged tissue. It is usually thick and fibrous. While scar tissues may not be painful in the beginning, they can become painful over time when nerve endings regenerate.
Shockwave therapy is a non-evasive solution for dealing with scar tissues. Shockwave therapy for scar tissues helps increase blood circulation to the targeted area, consequently enabling the body to break down the fibrous scar tissue.
Is it important to treat scar tissues because, unlike normal elasticated tissue, the scar tissues aren’t as elastic and end up hampering normal movement. Not just that, they can also weaken the healthy tissue around them.
Shockwave therapy stimulates cell regeneration and supports the body’s healing process. The MASTERPULS® Ultra series, from Storz Medical, available at Shockwave Canada, helps treat scar tissue injuries.
