ScarWork was introduced by Sharon Wheeler. The principle aim of scar work is to aid more movement and reduce pain around the site of the scar increasing joint mobility and more functional movement. ScarWork can be offered alongside physiotherapy or as an individual intervention. Single treatments can often show improvement but it is more common to have a course of treatment sessions.
ScarWork involves gentle hands on mobilisation designed to help loosen and move scar tissue, adhesions and release fascia around the scar area following surgery or an accident. This form of therapy is very gentle and should not cause discomfort.
