A C-section scar is a reminder of the strength and resilience of a woman’s body postnatally. However, it is important to take care of your C-section scar.
During C-section recovery, it’s important to massage the scar and mobilise the tissues in order to assist the natural scar healing process and prevent potential adhesions which can lead to a variety of issues such as local, pelvic, and lower back pain, and urinary problems.
Often the scar can feel tight and may develop adhesions in the underlying tissues which affect the movement within the pelvic area. Manual scar therapy, with a trusted and trained practitioner, is an important step to address these issues and avoid complications. Aesthetically, C-section scar massage is also a gentle way to help your scar heal and improve the appearance of your scar over time.
