Repair and remodelling of scar tissue is critical when attempting to overcome muscle and soft tissue injuries. Failure to do so results in a constant cycle of injury and re-injury.
Scar tissue is weak and brittle tissue, very susceptible to re-tearing and straining with certain motions and movements. When one "over-works" an area containing a build up of scar tissue, the resulting damage to the tissues further causes more build up of the weak, fibrous scar tissue.
To end the cycle, a focus on nourishing the injured tissues with a healthy supply of blood flow is critical. It is through the blood the body carries the oxygen, nutrients, and antibodies needed to generate new, healthy collagen. This just happens to be the premise behind the development of our T-Shellz wraps.
The following article describes in detail the phases of the healing process and references approaches to help influence the process in a positive way. In other words, helping to minimize scar tissue build up and maximum production of healthy Type I collagen.
