Scars and scar tissue.
What it is and what we can do with it?
Something that comes up time and time again in the webinars are questions about scars and what these look like in surgery.
The obvious effect of any surgery or even injury is going to be scarring, even if it’s not noticeable or obvious. In webinar 16 I’m going to be looking at exactly what scars are, how they get there, what they’re made up of, what they look like and actually happens during the process of laying down a scar.
I’ll be showing pictures of scar tissue in the body and talking about what this feels like and how it might affect our movement and function. There are a lot of ideas out there about how we can treat scar tissue or perhaps ‘release’ it and I’ll examine some of the evidence around this and see if we can dispel a few myths along the way.
