The Effects of Scar Tissue
a collaboration with
Join our conversation and learn self-help techniques for resolving
the Connective Tissue Network
Scar tissue forming is an amazing process involving the cells found in our connective tissue. The primary cell of connective tissue is called a fibroblast. When we injure our skin (or any part of our body really) these amazing cells transform into myofibroblasts. When a wound needs healing, these cells deposit collagen fibers and create stress to the tissue. The intracellular contraction these cells create pulls the tissue ends together, aligning the collagen fibers with something called integrin-mediated pulling onto the collagen bundles.
This isn’t magic. You can help yourself and reduce the risk of a scar adhesion or what’s called fibrosis (no matter how old the scar is) from causing more problems later. As initial scar tissue forms, the continuity of the tissues adjacent to the scar can become affected and over time, although unnecessary in healing, the scar tissue expands to healthy tissue slowly growing in size.

Meet My Guest:
Sue Hitzmann, MS, CST, NMT, is a nationally recognized neuro-fascial manual therapist and teacher whose studies and explorations have culminated in the creation of the MELT Method®. A revolutionary approach to pain-free fitness and longevity, MELT is a self help technique for working with the connective tissue system called fascia to help restore movement efficiency and overall health span. Because the Psoas is deeply embedded in the sympathetic neuro-core, hydrating connective tissue is an important key for resolving Psoas inflammation, pain, and tension.
NeuroCore is a termed coined by neuro-fascial therapist Sue Hitzmann creator of The MELT Method® (2006) first heard during a conversation (2010) with author Liz Koch discussing the deepest “fascial bags” that enfold spinal cord, psoas, kidney, adrenals: The NeuroCore System is comprised of a Reflexive Core – the 3D cylinder and the Rooted Core, the head-to-toe neurofascial connection that allows our brain to sustain more efficient balance of our masses and spaces (another MELT Term) for the bony and joint parts of our body.(2018)
