Scar tissue formation is part of the body’s natural healing process
that forms stronger and thicker replacement tissue.
This less-pliable tissue often limits muscular or cutaneous (skin) flexibility
and thus range of motion.
During the first 8-10 weeks post-injury is when the scar tissue can most easily be reduced with massage therapy through edema management and myofascial release techniques to prevent scar tissue buildup and improve mobility.
