Who do we treat?
We will assess and treat scars anywhere on the body, whether they are new or older scars. See our bodymap for our most commonly treated scars.
New scars can be ‘unstable’ and need a helping hand to settle.
Scars are a normal response to healing, after a wound has closed. Several factors can cause scars to remain immature and result in symptoms such as the scar becoming: Red (Hypertrophic) Painful Itchy Sensitive to touch Increase in size (Keloids)
As qualified Occupational and Physiotherapists specialised in conservative scar treatment, we can best advise you how to manage your scars with scheduled follow up and assessment.
