To combat the problem, John Pallof, a physical therapist at Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning in Massachusetts, has been working with Lauzon and using something called the Graston Technique.

"Basically he takes a metal tool and digs at the scar tissue to break it all up," Lauzon said. "So I can legit feel all the scar tissue breaking up and getting smaller and smaller.

Holy fuck that sounds rough. And I know a thing or two about scar tissue.

Lauzon has become one of my favorites and can't wait til he's back in there! Phone Post

I've had something similar done after an ACL reconstruction, it is not a pleasant experience.

I was stupid and did not listen to our athletic trainer and my skin had become attached to the patella.

He's gonna be better off getting this taken care of. Phone Post

I've always liked Joe and admired his tuffness. But god damn that seems painful. I hope all his hard work and sacrifice is rewarded even after he stops fighting. Phone Post

Joe's a smart cookie, and I'm glad he's got the common sense to realize taking it slow could make a huge difference.
