Scarring is a natural healing process following injury and/or surgery. Scars are areas of fibrous tissue (collagen) that replace normal tissue following injury or surgery.
In some cases, the body can overproduce the collagen fibres used to form the scar, which causes it to grow excessively or adhere to internal structures.
The aim of scar treatment is to ensure smooth gliding of internal structures to maintain range of motion over the affected joints, as well as improve the aesthetic appearance. All HULC therapists are experts in treating scarring. Scar management treatments include scar massage, moisturising, desensitisation, compression and the use of silicone products.
