Scar management

Scar management

Scar formation is part of the natural healing process. 
Scars may heal beautifully or may look unsightly, 
create tugging or pulling sensations, 
or restrict range of motion of an arm or chest wall. 
They may also be associated with cording or 
trapped pockets of lymphatic fluid. 
Surgical scars are the most common scars that I work with. 
Myofascial release is my preferred way of working with scars. 
Recently I attended a workshop on the McLaughlin 
Scar Release Technique and learned a different way
of using myofascial release for scar work. 
Scars that were more than thirty years old were treated 
and resulted in improved ability to lift the arm.
