new member with back problem

[Hello to all.
My wife was injured in an industrial accident in June of 1999. She suffered a burst fracture of the T12. After about 4 yrs of discussion with the Worker Comp. she retired.
She has not had surgury. The vertabra above and below grew over and connected. This was after the T12 collasped. She has been to several theraphy sessions and they have done a world of good. She now has a problem with scar tissue in and around the T12 area, and several other places both above and below the injury.
The problem that we have now is How do we get rid or break up that scar tissue? I have done some study on this and am looking for the correct way to do this. I think I can do it if I can learn how. I need some advice on where I can locate this type of training and what equipment is available for this type of theraphy
Thanks

Road....

Welcome to the board...sorry it took so long for someone to respond!

I am reallly sorry to hear of your wife's injury. I am interested in how you know that scar tissue is the current cause of your wife's pain? Did she have an MRI? What have the DRs said.

Now for scar tissue. Most medical professionals will tell you that if they try to remove the scar tissue the result will be more scar tissue. Unfortunately this can be the outcome of such surgeries. Now there is a group doctors in Florida who take on scar tissue issues. Google for MicroSpine.

Good luck and my prayers go out to you both,

Mark

Re: new member with back problem

Hello Road, welcome aboard!!! I'm so sorry, but I can't help with your question 'cause I don't know anything about scar tissue or surgeries!! I suffer with CP, but surgery isn't an option for me!! I just wanted to be sure and welcome you and your wife to a wonderful board full of wonderful people!! I'm sure someone that can answer your question, will be along shortly!!
I wish you luck and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Take care!
