SCAR TISSUE THERAPY CALGARY

Does your scar restrict movement or causes an uncomfortable pulling or other uncomfortable sensations?

Fibrous tissue, commonly known as scar tissue, is formed as a result of tissue damage caused by injury, surgery, or the destruction of normal tissue.

For example, scar tissue forms when a wound heals after a cut, sore, burn, or other skin condition, or when an incision (cut) is made into the skin during surgery. Thus scarring is a natural part of the healing process. 

It may also form inside the body when certain conditions, such as cirrhosis, cause normal tissue to turn into fibrous tissue.

Scar Massage Therapy

Scar massage therapy can start when the wound is fully healed, approximately 6-8 weeks after surgery.

The purpose of scar tissue massage is to alleviate the adverse effects of scar tissue formation and promote healing. Through targeted massage techniques, scar tissue can be effectively manipulated to improve its texture, flexibility, and appearance. Scar tissue massage helps to break down adhesions, increase blood circulation, reduce pain, and restore optimal function to the affected area. It can also help to minimize the risk of complications such as restricted movement, stiffness, and ongoing discomfort caused by scar tissue. Overall, scar tissue massage aims to enhance the healing process and promote better recovery outcomes.
