Scar Management - Scar
tissue is made up of collagen fibers. Collagen fibers are fibrous
connective tissues that have many functions within the body. The main
function of collagen fibers within scar tissue is for the repair of
damaged fibers within the body. Scar tissue can become very restrictive
as the elasticity of the tissues is smaller than the body's natural
muscular tissues. Outside of surgical procedures, there are many products available including; massagers, ointments, taping, compression wear and others designed to help break down scar tissue to help decrease
pain, increase range of movement and relieve restriction.
