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,

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
