Scars & Adhesion Relief

Any surgery is traumatic and if there is lingering pain and swelling, recovery may be prolonged. Inflammation is part of the healing process after surgery but swelling that doesn’t resolve can be problematic for recovery.

Every surgery will result in some degree of scarring. Scars are areas of fibrous tissue (fibrosis) that replace normal skin after surgery or injury. Scars can also create lesions (adhesion) which can cause pain and movement restriction even years after surgery.

It is important to seek early advice for management of scarring to eliminate potential adhesions. Scar treatment involves an assessment for adhesions followed by gentle releasing techniques. A functional assessment to observe any range of motion restrictions that may be limiting activities is also conducted.

Scar Tissue Release Therapy

Scar Tissue Release Therapy is a gentle and effective technique used to decrease discomfort, adhesions, or congestion of scar tissue that impacts the fascia. Fascia is that ‘Glad wrap’ looking tissue that binds, connects and holds the individual components of the body together.

Your treatment will combine manual therapies such as myofascial hold techniques, stretch and lift and cupping to release the fascial restrictions. You may feel such sensations as a slight tugging or pressure as the scar tissue is released. Your therapist will communicate with you throughout your session to ensure that you are comfortable.
