Scar Tissue

Scar and Adhesion treatments in Green Bay and Appleton without surgery or drugs. 

Internal scar tissue, also known as adhesions can greatly reduce movement and function after trauma or surgery.

Adhesions form when the body heals from trauma like a fall, surgery, accidents, inflammation, infections and chronic conditions like endometriosis.   Adhesions are simply internal scars.  Internally they can cause significant discomfort.  They can squeeze joints, organs and nerves.  When that happens, this can cause pain, dysfunction and inhibit movement.

The treatment Valley Chronic Pain provides is non invasive, so non-surgical, avoiding any risk of creating new scar tissue or internal adhesions using microcurrent frequencies to dissolve the adhesions.

Do I have adhesions?  

What are the symptoms?

Almost everyone will develop some type of internal adhesions in their life time. Most adhesions do not appear on MRI’s, xrays, CT scans, or ultrasounds. A visual inspection during surgery is the only way to diagnose adhesions. However, almost all surgeries cause adhesions.

Adhesions can “glue” body structures to other structures in the body. A hysterectomy, for example, can cause adhesions in the ovaries to adhere to the hip flexors or small bowel, causing groin pain. Maybe not right away, it may be 20 years down the road. When the body’s tissues heal after trauma (surgery, injury, infection, chronic inflammation) adhesions form. The tissues shrink and pull resulting in restricted movement in the area. That pull often creates mechanical inflammation, thus over time, creating more adhesions.

What Causes Adhesions?

Surgery

The most common cause of internal adhesions is surgery. 55% of women develop adhesions after pelvic surgery. Approximately 90% of all abdominal surgeries cause adhesions according to a recent study.

Common abdominal surgeries causing adhesions:

  • Hysterectomy
  • Hernia Repair
  • Gastric Bypass
  • Abortion
  • Appendectomy

Other Surgeries that can cause adhesions:

  • Hip and knee replacements
  • Back surgery
  • Thyroid surgery 
  • ANY surgery

Inflammation and Infections

Chronic inflammation and infections can also lead to adhesions. The same way the body heals after surgery, adhesions form as the body is healing after an infection or chronic inflammation.

  • Appendicitis
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
  • SIBO
  • Colitis
  • Diverticulitis
  • Endometriosis
  • IBS
  • Peyronie’s Disease

Accidents or other trauma

Adhesions after a traumatic physical event, or even treatments like radiation for cancer, adhesions can form around the site and even spread to surrounding organs and tissues. This may cause restricted movement, pain, digestive disorders. Trauma to the body from things like

  • Car Accidents
  • Whiplash
  • Radiation for cancer
  • Concussion
  • Torn tendons after they’ve healed
  • Chronic sprains
  • ANY surgical procedure 
  • Biopsied tissue/organs

The treatments used are considered safe and effective.  The methods used are used in places like professional sports, Cleveland Clinic’s Pediatrics, even Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
