Scars can form as a result of many different injuries to the connective tissue of the body. After the damage occurs, new tissue composed of a protein called collagen, forms to fill any gaps caused by the injury. Depending on the location, shape, or size of the scar tissue, there can be lingering symptoms such as pain, tenderness, itchiness, contractures, tightness and more. In order to treat and prevent these symptoms, proper management and wound care is crucial. We treat a wide variety of scars including: burn scars, trauma scars, surgical scars, scalds, hypertrophic scars and keloid scars. Soft tissue treatments and proper wound care help with pain, pigmentation, pliability, pruritus (itchiness), surface area, and thickness of scar tissue.
Some scar tissue may need manual physical therapy to achieve normal range of motion and flexibility around the area of the scar. Scar tissue, injuries, surgical sites, as well as spots that are going to scar in the future can be proactively treated through wound care. Every patient, injury, and healing process are different depending on the situation. However, every patient should try to achieve 100% healing as early as possible.
