Scar Tissue Management
in Sport

  • How much did you already learn about scar tissue, its role in recovery and
    athletic performance?

  • How much did you learn about the treatment of scar tissue? 

  • Are you aware of the far-reaching effects of scar tissue, both physically and mentally?

  • Did you learn about the psychological effects of injury and scarring on an athlete?​

In your years of training as a sports therapist...

If you didn't learn much,
or you need something more effective, read on...

The treatment of scar tissue is a seriously neglected topic. This is due to two primary reasons:

  1. Limited understanding or awareness of the role scar tissue plays in the inhibition of athletic performance and recovery

  2. The lack of a reliable and effective method of treating scar tissue

This course provides the answers to both of those issues and delivers a straightforward method of addressing scar tissue from surgery or a sports-related injury for your patients.

Thanks to the research already undertaken, you will have a proven method of scar tissue reduction, right at your fingertips.

You will, we hope, also begin to appreciate the massive role scar tissue plays in athletic performance and the potential to reduce recurrence of problems and the possibility of re-injury. Your role is to help the athletes in your care return to their chosen sport or competition, as safely, quickly, and effectively as possible.  MSTR® will be an enormous assistance to you achieving these objectives as it plays an important part in the primary care and recovery of the injured athlete.

"If the active scar is left untreated...
it may be the case of therapeutic failure and 

Just think about that statement for a moment and you'll see how important and useful this course will be for you.

What you'll learn...

Not only will we cover the physical effects of scars in fascia and other structures that inhibit sports performance, by the end of this course you will have collected the skills necessary to reduce scar tissue, in a reliable but non-invasive way.

By ignoring or minimising the role scar tissue plays, you run the risk of reduced therapeutic effect from the other interventions you might be using, but also the potential for recurrence and re-injury!

Who is this course designed for?

The course is specifically designed for physiotherapists and sports massage therapists - or anyone involved in physical therapy, and whose work is primarily with athletes and sports people.

We teach physiotherapists, working with professional athletes, through to practitioners working with keen amateur sports people. 

Injuries can be sustained from any sporting activity.  Untreated scars can seriously impede a participant's return to training and their chosen activity.
