How to Get Rid of Scar Tissue

Any time you have a surgery or injury, the area scars up. Scar tissue is great for healing, but then it has nowhere to go and can cause problems in the long run. This video will show you how to get rid of scar tissue with scar tissue mobilization. Make sure to talk with your doctor or PT before doing this because you want the incision or injury site to be completely healed before you start.

To help break up the scar tissue, you can start with “warming up” the tissue in the area first. You can use a massage cream or lotion, but you don’t have to. Start off by pushing very lightly and make small circles directly over the scar. Then you can go up and down and side to side. Once you have done that about a minute, you can start pushing harder. This might be painful now, and you might feel some pops underneath. That is the scar tissue breaking up. It is normal and necessary.

Now you can actually take the top layer of skin and start twisting it up and down, side to side, and in circles. You are just trying to move that top layer around to break up the scar tissue from the layer below. Try doing this 3-5 minutes 1-2 times a day.
