Jimmy,

PT can sometimes do a type of deep tissue massage that is helpful. With your Dr's authorization, they can also do therapeutic ultrasound to help break up that scar tissue. And if that doesn't work, your Dr. can inject certain steroids (and maybe Wydase) into the scar tissue area to help get rid of it. I would certainly want to explore these other options before even considering another surgery...
