MSTR (McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release)
Hands-on Therapy for Scar Tissue
Surgeons and doctors already know that scar tissue can be problematic in the months and years following surgery.
McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release® is an amazing advancement in the treatment of scar tissue and is changing people’s lives. This technique is used by healthcare professionals for:
- Cesarean section scars
- Hysterectomy scars
- Spinal surgery scars
- Trauma scars such as those typically found on the knee
- Head wound scars
- Mastectomy scars etc…
- Amputation scars
- Underlying scar tissue from laparoscopic surgery
Bio-tensegrity Model – The interconnected and continual ‘webbing’ of the fascia may be interrupted by a scar. The fibrous and tightly bound collagen fibers of the scar inhibit free movement in the same way a tight shirt can restrict your movement.
The scar can even be remote from the problem area and asymptomatic. For example, a scar from appendix surgery can cause shoulder restrictions or low back discomfort. A scar on the toe or foot can affect the hip, knee, and low back function. A wide range of bio-mechanical restrictions can be caused by scars and unlocked with MSTR® work.
Emotional and psychological effects – Some scars (especially those from trauma) can be particularly distressful to some people. They may not like their scar. They may not want to even touch it. Their scar represents the event that created that scar.
The scar may bring up feelings of fear, anger, hate, disgust, self-image problems, and so forth. Even feelings of worthlessness can be associated with that scar. One of the most outstanding things that MSTR® treatment can provide is the eradication of those long-held feelings. How does that work?
It seems that as the scar itself normalizes (as feelings return to the scar, fibrous tissue softens and it begins to feel ‘natural’ again) then those negative emotions also start to recede. We have many examples and experiences where all those feelings simply start to disappear as the scar feels to integrate and become a part of the ‘whole’ again.
All these reasons – and more – mean that you really shouldn’t ignore the effects of scars.
