Effective Scar Treatment Brisbane

Scars can often cause greater damage than a superficial mark on the skin. Scar tissue can run deeper into the dermis and other tissues, especially when we undergo major trauma from surgery or injuries. Without the correct treatment, this scar tissue can lead to decreased mobility and a loss of strength in the muscle.

Scar Treatment Graceville Physio

The tissues underlying the skin are scarred and it is more important to release the adhesions in these layers. They are the muscle and organ layers below the skin. By doing this the appearance of the scar gets better also.

Graceville Physio offers some of the best options for scar treatment Brisbane residents can get. This means effective, risk-free services for surgical or injury scars.

What types of scars are treated by our Graceville scar treatment specialists?

Surgery scars:

Surgical scars are a common issue that we deal with when administering these scar treatment services. The impact of surgery often lingers long after the procedure.

The problem may have been fixed, but there is still a reminder of the trauma on the skin. Graceville Physiotherapists offer the best scar treatment services for those keen to improve the look and sensation of the skin.

C-section scar treatment from Graceville Physio:

Many women will take on great physical fitness regimes to get themselves back in shape after giving birth. Yet, some will still struggle with the issue of their C-section scar.

Some will worry that this scar will be a permanent reminder of their surgery. This isn’t the case at all. A physiotherapist can use scar massage to help the incision scar to heal.

Women need to wait until around 8-12 weeks post-surgery then they can book an appointment. Some new mothers may also benefit from the use of a belly band to create this pressure at home.    

Scars from accidents and injuries:

Then there are all the incidents of internal scar tissue from accidents and injuries. For example, sportsmen that strain or separate muscles may develop abnormal scar tissue as the injury heals. These massages and other methods can help to manipulate the scar and promote healthier tissue growth.    

What scar treatments are on offer?

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation:

This service uses a series of stainless steel tools in a form of blading. This isn’t as painful or destructive as it sounds. In fact, our IASTM methods are much safer and more effective than the Graston Technique used by other therapists. The tools break up adhesions in the scar tissue to re-mobilise the area and improve its function.    

Scar massage:

Scar massage is a great alternative for those that don’t like the idea of this instrument-assisted approach to scar treatments. Here, therapists will stretch the skin and use pressure to correct the tissue and promote the growth of healthy cells. It is simple and pain-free. One of the great things about choosing a Graceville scar massage therapist is that you can benefit from a deeper massage. Our specialists go down into the organ layer and can also apply lymphatic drainage, which reduces the swelling around the site.  

Scars from accidents and injuries:

Then there are all the incidents of internal scar tissue from accidents and injuries. For example, sportsmen that strain or separate muscles may develop abnormal scar tissue as the injury heals. These massages and other methods can help to manipulate the scar and promote healthier tissue growth.    

Kinesiology Tape:

One popular tool right now is Kinesiology tape. This tape is applied to the area of the injury and create a permanent stretch of the scar in an optimal direction. This can create space between the skin and muscle for better blood flow to the damaged tissue. It is best to have this tape applied by a professional therapist so they can determine the best position and direction for the strips.
