Scar is a part of typical wound healing. However, sometimes scar may become a problem when it restricts movement, feels painful/itchy or impacts upon a person’s ability to participate in self-care, school, work or leisure activities. Scar management may include:

  • Silicon Therapy

  • Desensitisation
  • Splinting
  • Compression Therapy
  • Cryotherapy
