Soft Tissue Therapy for Scar Tissue

Head of Soft Tissue Therapy, Rachael Giordani explains how scars can be effectively treated using Soft Tissue Therapy.

Soft tissue treatment is an effective technique to reduce scar appearance and formation. Many of our patients sustain scars after surgical procedures and it is our job to reduce the soft tissue tightness, restriction or pain that they often experience.

Soft tissue treatment for scar tissue can often be overlooked by health professionals, however, treating the scar tissue at the correct stage of soft tissue recovery can reduce its ability to restrict movement and function. Scars are best treated within 18 – 24 months.

Scar tissue occurs when collagen fibres form over an injury site during the healing process. The previous healthy, pliable tissue is replaced by fibrous tissue that is less malleable. 

Unfortunately, scar tissue is never as functional as the original tissue. However, soft tissue treatment can help make significant and long lasting changes by incorporating scar tissue release in to their treatment.
