There are several "soft tissue" techniques which help with loosening scar tissue without the use of surgery. Look into Graston Technique, and Active Release Technique (ART). These are techniques that mainly are used by Chiropractors. It is recommended to consult with a chiropractor or look online for one of these practitioners. Good Luck
