Scars need to move


When assessing your scar we care about how well the scar moves, what it feels like to you, and how those limitations influence the things you need to be able to do. Things like:

  • Twisting

  • Bending

  • Standing up tall with arms overhead

  • Hanging from a bar (pull ups, gymnastics movements like kipping)

  • Laying on your stomach

  • Bladder filling or emptying (YES, scars can influence how this feels)

  • Menstrual cycle related pain

  • Dry Needling
