The Wurn Technique for Infertility, Pain, and Adhesions
After injury, infection, or surgery, patients may experience pain, dysfunction, or increased tissue tension in their body. Symptoms may appear in muscles, joints, connective tissues, and organs. According to Wurn, problems can occur in the body due to the adhesions formed following the original trauma. Pain and dysfunction can also occur months or years later, due to the body’s compensations in response to the injury, surgery, or infection.
Adhesion formation occurs after trauma to the tissues, as a response to the tissue damage. After an injury, infection, or surgery, tiny yet strong collagen fibers form as part of the body’s response to the trauma. These collagen fibers form adhesions by laying down “cross-links” in random patterns, which form the building blocks of scar tissue. “Adhesions can be tough and wiry, or filmy and thin,” says Wurn. “They may be large enough to be seen by diagnostic tests, or so small that they are microscopic. Either way, they can exert tremendous tensile forces on the tissues where they form.”
Adhesions and cross-links may remain in the body long after the original inflammation or trauma has healed. “They may adhere the injured tissues to nerves (causing pain) or to neighboring structures (causing dysfunction),” Wurn explains. “As the body’s tissues heal and adhesions are formed, the tissues begin to shrink somewhat, resulting in decreased movement in the injured area. Thus, the healing process can actually create more mechanical irritation and more cross-linking of collagen fibers, perpetuating the cycle of adhesion formation.”
The treatment focuses on the adhesions in the soft tissues, such as muscles, organs, and connective tissues. The latter may become shorter, restricted, or adhere to neighboring structures after surgery, injury, infection, or inflammation.
Wurn points out that when adhesions or tiny micro-adhesions form around and between structures (including the reproductive organs), the organs may, in turn, adhere to other structures. This restricts the organs, causing them to potentially become painful and/or lose their ability to function properly.
Pain complaints may include back, hip, or neck pain; headaches at the base or top of the skull or temples; cramping, painful menstruation, or pain with intercourse. Functional problems include constipation, loose bowels, poor digestion, or infertility.
