In between the skin and muscles, there’s a layer of fibrous tissue called the fascia. This spiderweb-like tissue adheres your skin to your muscles and acts as a support system promoting healthy movement. Normally, your muscles can glide and slide freely; however, when there’s an injury to the area, the body produces an increase of fibrous tissue, severely restricting and impeding the gliding motion. This can create pulls, tensions, and painful pressure.
What We Do
At Higher Elevations Chiropractic, we use a tool that allows us to scrap the surface tissue, breaking and stretching the fibrous adhesions, restoring the muscle movement, reducing scar tissue, and promoting neurological stimulation.
