Marjorie Brook Scar Tissue – Scar Tissue Effects – What are Adhesions?
In this lecture, Marjorie Brook explains what scar tissue is, and how it affects movement over a lifetime. She gives several examples of long-term scar tissue effects, and tells the stories of success with those clients.
“Scar tissue and adhesions are the results of the body’s natural healing process, and it occurs both internally and externally. This process, if working correctly, should eliminate scar tissue and adhesions once the wound has healed, but in some cases, a person’s body does not break down the scar tissue. The adhered tissue continues to spread, which can trigger a cascading effect of compensations involving the kinetic chain throughout the body.” ~Marjorie Brook
