  • To mobilize scar tissue that has spread to surrounding tissues and causes limitations of movement and pain
  • To make keloid scars fade and return to normal skin size

Treatment

  • Massage, mobilize, and stretch keloid scars
  • Stretching to deep spreading scars in the abdomen
  • Mobilize and stretch scar tissue around orthopedic sites and use orthopedic techniques to strengthen, increase range and decrease pain around the surgical site
