Scar Treatment in Krakow – Physiotherapy treatment for Scar

Scars, although a result of wound healing, can be a source of health problems. However, scar therapy can bring many benefits. If you’re looking for a way to reduce pain, improve appearance, and increase mobility after a scar, we invite you to use our services.

What does scar therapy with a physiotherapist look like?

Scar therapy is a gentle manual work that gradually activates successive tissue layers through repeated delicate rubbing and pulling or compression, up to deep adhesions inside the body. By pulling individual depths of tissue layers at the appropriate pace and direction, the therapist smoothes areas of restricted tissue glide. In this way, the shape of individual layers in space changes, and the therapist’s touch, combined with the warmth of their hand and the appropriate direction of action, has enough force to dissolve all collagen clumps that formed during the healing process and limited mobility period. This preserves the correct anatomical structures.

You can start working with a scar from the moment it becomes dry, does not weep, and is not warm. We also work with scars that are years old, and still achieve very good changes and effects of our work.

What effects can you expect?

The effectiveness of therapy depends on the type of scar, tissue reactivity, and type of damage. However, scars usually change under the influence of touch, becoming smoother, softer, and more even. It is often possible to change their appearance by changing the color or shape, e.g., the width of the tissue spread or the bulges or indentations of the scar tissue. In cases of sensory disturbances, restoring the movement of tissues surrounding the scar can restore sensation or alleviate pain in the scar area. Working with a scar can also affect the body’s biomechanical balance and help treat ailments in other areas of the body. Common complaints associated with scars in the chest area are neck and spine pain, upper limb joint pain, and pelvic, hip, and thoracolumbar transition pain.
