When I hurt my back there was a ton of pain and all the other stuff that comes with it. It got extreme and backed off, worse and less. This went on for Years. Anyway in the last few months before surgery I noticed a significant decrease in pain. I was told because of the amount of scar tissue build up in my low back it actually was interupting the pain and so it did not bother me. As all you know when pain is high and then when there is some relief you feel like 100 per cent better. Even though the pain even at its lowest, if it was with anyone else they would be in bed. SO I was wondering has anyone heard about Scar tissue blocking the pain?
