Benefits of Scar Tissue
Scar tissue massage after back surgery can be very beneficial to patients. Whether you’ve had a laminectomy, microdiscectomy, spinal fusion, vertebroplasty, or kyphoplasty, scar tissue is part of recovery.
Scar massage, during the proliferative stage, has a beneficial role in collagen synthesis, as it prevents adhesions and helps in collagen synthesis. Also, this mechanical stress when applied to the intermolecular bonds helps in realigning collagen.
