Healing from Injuries

Time heals all things…that is a misunderstood truth. The fact is that your body is healed with time, but the way it heals can cause more pain over time. The body heals with scar tissue and that doesn’t function like normal tissue. Scar tissue causes the normal tissue to be bound up in a ball putting stresses on other structures in the tendon or joint. So while the tissues appear healed, they will cause other injuries in the body. This undue stress on the other tissues appear as pain. Painful areas should be addressed quickly and not wait until the pain is so severe it restricts your normal function. Seek treatment from your physical therapist at the first signs of pain in order to keep your body functioning at the highest level.
