What Is Scar Rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation and healing can be a daunting process alone. Our experienced lymphoedema and remedial massage therapist can help rehabilitate scars from a range of surgeries and can start once the wound is healed. Scar rehabilitation helps to address numerous post-surgical challenges which include: scar sensitivity and pain, numbness and tingling, inability to return to regular exercise and loss of strength and endurance.

Benefits of Scar Rehabilitation

In the care of a specialised therapist, there are a number of benefits provided by professional scar rehabilitation. These include:
• Reduced scar sensitivity and pain
• A decrease in numbness and tingling
• Decreased inflammation and swelling
• Softening fibrosis
• Improvements in strength and endurance
• Techniques to support a sooner return to regular exercise
