Scar Tissue Management

If you have surgical scar tissue or scar tissue formation from an injury, you may benefit from physical therapy to help reduce the scar. Your physical therapist can use various techniques, like massage, taping, or stretching, to decrease scar tissue adhesions and formations so you can restore normal functional mobility.

Scar tissue forms after an injury to the normal collagen cells in the body. If you cut yourself, have surgery, or tear tissue in the body, scar tissue will develop.

The development of scar tissue is part of the normal healing process in the body.
