Adhesion Awareness Giveaway Offers Over $9,700 in Prizes

By on Aug 30, 2011
Virtually all people have adhesions (internal scars). If you scrape your knee, have a fall, undergo surgery or develop an infection, adhesions form to surround the injured area. As the body heals, adhesions often remain at the site of the trauma, surgery, infection or inflammation.

Unfortunately, they can spread to nearby organs, muscles, or nerves, causing unexplained pain or dysfunction. Small but powerful adhesions can act like nylon ropes or straight-jackets, and can cause a myriad of health problems.

Adhesions are often an underlying cause of chronic pain, female infertility, endometriosis pain, and bowel obstructions. Because they are invisible on most diagnostic tests, such as x-rays, CT and MRI scans, they often go undiagnosed by physicians and health care professionals.

Clear Passage Physical Therapy has developed and researched non-invasive treatments for adhesions for over twenty years. Their non-surgical, hands-on therapy (Wurn Technique) uses techniques that feel like a deep massage, to release adhesions that bind structures within the body. In published studies, most patients reported significant pain relief, and a return of function.

In honor of Adhesion Related Disorder (ARD) Awareness Month this September, Clear Passage will donate over $9,700 in treatment and lodging, to three prize winners. Patients who suffer from an ARD can enter this giveaway on the Clear Passage website or on their Facebook page.

The grand prize winner will receive 20 hours of free treatment at Clear Passage’s national headquarters in Gainesville, FL and five days of lodging at a lovely Florida waterfront cottage (a $6,100 value). The second prize winner will receive 10 hours of free treatment (a $2,600 value), and the third prize winner will receive 20 percent off a 20 hour treatment program (a $1,040 value).

“Diagnosing adhesions can be confusing, because they often cross body systems,” says Clear Passage National Director Belinda Wurn, PT. “Many people go from specialist to specialist, sometimes for years, simply searching for a diagnosis. Their problems increase when they learn that the surgery to remove adhesions can often create more adhesions.”

“We are pleased to offer a non-surgical alternative to patients” she said. “It’s very gratifying to give adhesion sufferers back their lives.”
