Scar Tissue Management

Scar tissue forms from all types of trauma to the body, and sometimes we don't even know it is happening until its too late.

Scar tissue forms after an injury to our soft tissue structures (ligament, tendon, muscle or fascia) which could result from a tissue tear or after surgery.  The formation of scar tissue is a part of the normal healing process.  It begins to form within days after the injury but the scar tissue fibers are arranged in a disorganized pattern initially which will not transmit forces or stress to the tissue effectively and may be a source of pain and limit activity.  Surgical scars may adhere to the soft tissue structures underneath and limit mobility and be a source of pain. 

Scar tissue can be remodeled to align appropriately in the line of force or stress by stretching and stressing it with appropriate soft tissue mobilization techniques and exercise.  At Peak Sports and Spine Physical Therapy we offer a variety of soft tissue mobilization treatments and corrective exercise to help manage scar tissue remodeling, reduce pain and return you to your desired level of function.
