The secret of successfully treating chronic pain problems is identifying the exact source of the pain and then correctly matching the appropriate treatment required to eliminate the pain. Unfortunately, this process is rarely accomplished.
In most cases of chronic pain the real culprit is Adhesive Scar Tissue Formation. The body responds to soft tissue injury by producing scar tissue wherever muscles, tendons or ligaments are located which includes the low back, the neck, the shoulders, knees, ankles and so forth. When adhesive scar tissue forms, all movement that pulls, stretches or compresses the injured and inflamed tissue causes pain.
