Fibrosis or scar tissue can build up over time in and round joints causing stiffness and pain. In order to break it up, a protocol of stretching was developed by medical doctors in their efforts to reduce fibrosis or scarring in and around the spine in chronic degenerative conditions, or after surgery was unsuccessful. Sometimes this procedure is performed under anesthesia to allow greater range of motion. Dr. Allen will use this technique without anesthesia to patient tolerance when indicated to help prevent or reduce any fibrosis around spinal nerves, and Dr. Allen has seen similar results without the risk of general anesthesia.
