Burn Scar Massage Therapy
There is a clear and consistent relationship between the effects and benefits of massage therapy and burn recovery. The importance of touch to recovering burn survivors cannot be overestimated. Over ten years of research has shown the importance and relevance of therapeutic massage for burn scars. Research has indicated not just psychological benefits but reduction in pruritus, improvement in range of motion, and significant reduction in pain.
Massage therapy can improve mobility, decrease pruritus, improve skin status and assist in the overall recovery process for burn survivors.
Therapeutic Massage assists in recovery by increasing blood flow, softening tissues, releasing scar tissue, and improving lymph drainage in the scarred tissue.
Current research on burn-related scar tissue indicates that therapeutic massage is effective in increasing mobility of previously immobile or restricted tissue.
Research recommends Therapeutic Massage as part of an optimal scar modification technique.
