How to Restore Flow in Your Body | The Fascia Masters, Season 3 – Episode 3

Do you know the difference between scar tissue and adhesions?

Scar tissue and adhesions are often used interchangeably, but they are distinct entities with unique characteristics and formation processes. Scar tissue typically forms as a result of injuries or surgeries, where the body initiates an inflammatory response to rebuild damaged tissue. However, conventional methods like icing and immobilization can disrupt this natural healing process, leading to the accumulation of collagen around the injury site. The result is scar tissue, which lacks the elasticity and mobility of healthy tissue due to an imbalance in collagen and elastin.

On the other hand, adhesions develop gradually in response to poor posture and breathing habits. Collagen within the fascial system migrates to create false walls and floors to compensate for imbalances in the body. Adhesions tend to form in areas where collagen accumulates, particularly in the front of the body due to the natural aging process, which occurs in a forward rotational direction. These adhesions restrict movement and can contribute to a loss of height and internal space within the body.

So, what can we do to support our bodies and mitigate the effects of scar tissue and adhesions? The key lies in understanding and supporting the body's inflammatory process. Instead of impeding inflammation with conventional methods, we should focus on facilitating it through proper techniques like decompression through fascial compression and supporting proper breathing patterns.

Proper posture and breathing are crucial to prevent the formation of adhesions. By maintaining optimal postural foundations and breathing patterns, we can reduce the need for collagen migration within the fascial system. Techniques such as fascia decompression and proper breathing can help release and mitigate the effects of scar tissue and adhesions, ultimately restoring mobility and balance in the body.
