Scar Work Therapy | Chiropractor Aberdeen | Scarring

Scarwork Therapy

ScarWork is a light-touch manual therapy, using hands directly on the surface of the skin without the use of lubricants or medical devices, to address tissue damage associated with scarring, including fibrosis, adhesions and contractures, resulting from surgery or trauma. ScarWork is specifically designed to address the changed elastin and collagen associated with pathological scarring. ScarWork is a gentle therapy and treatment is always centred around the client’s comfort levels.

ScarWork helps by...

  • Releasing tightness
  • Improving range of motion
  • Stimulates healing
  • Reduces pain and sensitivity
  • Supports emotional wellbeing

ScarWork can be beneficial on...

  • Post surgical scars (e.g hip/knee replacements)
  • Achillies Repairs
  • C-Section scars
  • Trauma scars
  • Mastectomy scars
  • Drain/porta cath sites
  • Old scars which are healed but remain tight/restricted


What type of scars do you treat?

I treat any scar - surgical or trauma. If you feel any tightness, referred pain, reduced range of movement give scar work therapy a try. I currently treat C Sections, Achilles repairs, total hip/knee replacements, hernia repairs alongside traumas and burns. Even if the scar appears well healed it can still cause issues below the surface

Scars still benefit from treatment even if they are long healed. Cells constantly renew so even old scar tissue will benefit from scar work.

Does scar work hurt?

Scar work should never hurt but you may feel different sensations such as pulling, stretching, or tingling. I will always work within your comfort levels

How many sessions will I need?

Depending on the scar/issues most people will need seen 4-6 times however this varies between clients

How often will I need to come for appointments?

Unlike muscles scars have no memory so if you need to leave time between sessions we should be able to start where we left off

ScarWork Therapy is available in our Holburn Street Clinic with Katy Healy
