Post-Surgical Complications

Are you suffering Post-Surgical Complications? From time to time, surgery can becomes necessary when other options or alternatives have been unable to provide results. Sometimes surgical procedures prove to be beneficial, while other times the problems still persist despite numerous surgical attempts to solve them. Either way, surgery is a very invasive procedure that alters the normal structure and function of the body. With every surgery, scar tissue formation is inevitable. This scar tissue changes the normal movement patterns of the body which not only reduces range of motion, but also places excessive stress on muscles, joints, ligaments, and even bones. So whether the surgery was successful or not, the new scar tissue must be addressed to avoid faulty movement patterns and stress to surrounding soft tissue structures. If nothing is done to restore normal function to the area then further injury can always occur.

Symptoms include:

  • Excessive scar tissue;
  • Reduction in range of motion;
  • Continuation of pre-surgery symptoms;
  • New pains in surrounding areas;
  • Loss of normal function;
  • Failed surgical resolution.

Due to back pain, I was referred to Performance Health & Wellness and Dr. Chris Barney. Thanks to Dr. Barney’s thorough and gentle manipulation and his suggestions for physical exercise I have been pain free for over two years. Elinor Conroy, Irvine, California
