Susan will be discussing the role of scar tissue in chronic injuries and how to heal for this month's T.R.E.D. discussion. Scar tissue is most often the culprit in chronic or repetitive motion injuries, instead of the common myth of inflammation. The best way to palpate scar tissue is with specialized tools that start a controlled inflammatory response to cue your body to break down the scar tissue and repair the damaged area. All athletes who use any repetitive motion or have wear and tear on tendons or soft tissues in their body and who particularly experience plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, ITB syndrome, hip bursitis, tennis elbow, patellofemoral syndrome, hamstring tendinopathy will greatly benefit from this presentation.
