It May Be All About Your Fascia
Fascia is a type of connective tissue that runs continuously throughout your body. In fact, all the joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons in your body all rest beneath flexible layers of fascia that support their function. Damaged fascia is a common yet often untreated cause of pain and/or restricted mobility.
It may even drive post-surgical discomfort that can follow many common operations, including joint replacements, ligament repairs, bone repairs, and more.
How Does It Happen?
Surgery can be required for many different types of musculoskeletal conditions and injuries. However, in order for surgeons to access deeper structures, they must cut directly through the encasing fascia. This trauma to the tissue may often cause the fascia to become severely damaged, leaving it dehydrated, hardened, and less mobile.
Once in this state, the scarred fascia may start to pull on and restrict the structures underneath it, or compress the nerves within it, all of which can often result in pain and discomfort that persists long after the operation.
How Can RELIEF® Help?
RELIEF® is used to help restore and rehydrate damaged fascia to treat pain and injury without sedation, steroids, or downtime. For post-surgical scarring of the fascia, RELIEF® may be used to help restore the mobility and hydration of the tissue that was damaged during operation. This may help to free any nearby compromised structures, release entrapped nerves, and help patients overcome painful post-op symptoms. The procedure has helped thousands to overcome painful conditions and get back to their best.
