I have had a tight band feeling now for 7 years 24/7 no pain just uncomfortable with that feeling. One thing I tried and the massage therapy seemed to think it loosen things up was with cupping. she loosened the scars up to where I could move that skin around instead of the stuck down feeling. I bought the cups my self and use for knees and other things too. It hasn't changed the tight band feeling but I think if I would do it to myself a couple times a day maybe I would start seeing improvement. Just don't seem to find the time to do that. I have the kind of cups that look like little domes and you don't have to oil up and move the cups around you just stick them down. they are suppose to help scar tissue.
