Scar Therapy

Scars form as part of the natural healing process that follows surgery or an injury. Scar tissue forms when collagen fibres develop over the site of trauma to protect and strengthen the wound. They may build up in a haphazard pattern and the tissue becomes more fibrous and less flexible than the original tissue. Adhesions may occur where the scar tissue becomes attached or stuck to adjacent structures or underlying tissues, leading to these tissues to become distorted.

Scars continue to change and mature over the course of up to two years, and during this time sometimes the scar may become tight, painful or restrict the mobility of the surrounding tissues and therefore affect joints, posture, and function.

Whether scars are large or small, deep, or superficial, they can have a profound effect on a person’s quality of life, but they can be treated to optimise the healing and improve the quality, strength, and mobility of them.

The aim of scar therapy is to decrease any adhesions or stuck down tissue, decrease pain or discomfort and create a strong, healthy and mobile scar.  Both old and new scars can benefit from treatment. Scar therapy can help to stimulate and boost healing by increasing the blood flow which helps to nourish the area and assisting with the flow of lymph fluid. It can also reduce sensitivity and numbness in the area and often improve the visual appearance.

ScarWork is a gentle, painless manual therapy that uses light touch to soften and release scars and by doing so, create improved movement between the skin, fascia, muscles, organs and skeleton. It is a holistic treatment that identifies if there are any further reaching impacts or complications from a scar, and works to integrate the scar into the surrounding tissue to gain the best possible result from any scarring. Several sessions may be required to achieve the best results and our ScarWork therapist can advise on self-treatment and products that will also help to improve the outcome.
