I was wondering what the general treatment is for a surgical incision . I saw one physical therapist that would massage my incision scar and make it hurt. I switched to another physical therapist and she agreed massaging the scar was good but she doesn't do it herself to me. I can't rub myself hard enough to cause pain as the first PT did but I do rub it. My dermatologist recommended I rub it in the direction of the scar though, but not side to side as my first PT did. It has been 8 months since my surgery and it still itches almost all the time. I was told remodeling takes up to a year to 2 years.
I'm not sure what is best methods to use to minimize scar tissue and decreased mobility. I was hoping to hear what some others have done that they find helpful. I would love to hear from you all!
