    Default Supp for healing a torn quad?

    I tore my quad last year playing soccer. It doesn't hurt anymore, but I occasionally feel painless sensations, and sometimes I feel pain. I believe it's caused by the scar tissue.

    Are there any supp's that will help get rid of the scar tissue?

    A good rolfing, or a visit to an ART specialist might help you.

    This. You need to get someone to break up any adhesions in the tissue.

    Ok, I'll check this stuff out. Right now I do p90x. If my form is correct I rarely get pain, so I assume it's healthy because I'm strengthening and stretching myself. Am I correct in assuming that this type of light exercise is healthy?

    And any ideas on how long it will take to break up the tissue? And around how much it will cost? Also, will I ever get back to 100%? All I really want is to be able to sprint my ass off and kick reasonably well.

    ART/Graston techniques worked great for breaking up the scar tissue in my forearm after surgery.

    a couple art sessions breaks up scar tissue pretty quick, the roler depends on how deep the tissue is, and the frequency, and how much you enjoy pain.

    Black Rumble Rollers work for me for a back/shoulder injury so it should help with leg injuries too:

    he blue rumble roller is more firm than a standard black foam roller, and the black rumble roller is substantially more firm than the blue. No experience using a PVC pipe, but the nubs on the rumble roller, combined with the high durometer material, makes for a pretty brutal experience. I find the blue to be preferable for most back work, and the black to be preferable for leg work (particularly hamstrings).

    massaged the trigger points on the front of my shin last night and the injured quad muscle twitched on average 5x/second for 30 minutes. (i injured it kicking a soccer ball so the shin muscle was involved in the movement that resulted in the injury) afterwards there was a dull pain, and it felt cold (thought that might be because i took my pants off and stared at it for a while). today i've noticed less twitching. i'm gonna continue on this routine for a while and see how far i'll get. i'll decide on ART at that point. don't want to massage it with a roller because i've tried manual massages and they haven't helped and sometimes seemed to make it worse.

    from some reading i did a while ago, i think the twitching is the muscle slowly relaxing after the trauma. if this is true, the scarred and surrounding muscle is relaxing. that should open them up to a great range of motion and strengthening, and more exchange of nutrients.

    i also do stretching and light exercise daily (p90x) and that's gotta be helping too. not sure if the TPM would have caused twitching if the surrounding muscles weren't stronger, more flexible, and my neural maps open to new movements.
