Are You Feeling Old? Muscle Adhesions Could Be Why!

Jan 31, 2008
Do you get up in the morning and find it harder to move your arms, legs, and back than you used to? Do you feel more tired when taking long walks in the park, at amusement parks, or shopping in the mall? Do you find yourself having more aches and pains than you ever did before, and just knock it up to old age? Well, unless you are an elderly person feeling old like this due to aches and pains in your body is not normal--at all. If you are feeling old, it could be due to old scar tissue and muscle adhesions in the tissues of your body that are causing you to feel this way; luckily a massage therapist can do something about it.

What are Muscle Adhesions?

The concept of muscle adhesions is pretty advanced but in laymen's terms, muscle adhesions are your body's way of repairing damaged muscle tissue in your body. If you have ever pulled or even torn a muscle, hurt your knee, hurt your back, or severely injured some other important muscular group in your body chances are that you have muscle adhesions in that area of your body underneath your skin and inside your muscle tissue. Since it is your body's natural muscular band-aid, muscle adhesions are not a bad thing but they can cause pain and discomfort as your body gets older and more worn, and that can be what has you feeling so old. Along with other scar tissue under your skin, muscle adhesions can be a nasty culprit for something that once did your body such good.

The Problem with Muscle Adhesions

There is some problem with muscle adhesions, even for those who have not yet reached the point where it can make them feel older and stiffer. Muscle adhesions are like bandages that can lie across the muscles and tendons and hinder the way that they are able to stretch and move. This normally is not a problem, but a serious athlete who takes pride in being strong and flexible will find that although they may feel more powerful, they are less flexible.

What to Do About Scar Tissue and Muscle Adhesions

Muscle adhesions and scar tissue in your muscles can be a nasty problem for an athlete, and a nasty problem for a person who is just beginning to feel their age--or older than it. It can reduce the quality of life for an active person, and outside surgery it can seem like there is nothing to be done about this painful problem. There is one way of treating this issue, and it is an issue that many people fail to consider when they have an ache or a pain in their body. Soft tissue massages are great for helping to ease out muscle adhesions and bring back strength and flexibility to a pained area! Trained professionals that are licensed and a massage therapy certifications know everything about the muscles that there is to know, including how to repair and ease the pain of scar tissue and muscle adhesions in the body.

If you are starting to feel your age and you aren't sure what to do about it, it could be those muscle adhesions calling your name and punishing you for years of football, track, softball, swimming, or whatever it is that you did to stay healthy and have fun. They can certainly prevent you from having fun now, but not if you do something about it. Your local licensed massage therapist is trained to take care of this problem, and they have the power to help you overcome the obstacles that muscle adhesions can put in your path.
