October is breast cancer awareness month, and for women who have had breast surgery, coping with issues that arise from surgery scars can be trying and difficult. It is important to know that although the development of scar tissue is a part of the normal healing process after breast surgery, it isn’t necessary to suffer with scars that cause pain or reduce function.
Scar remodeling is a gentle physical therapy technique that can help decrease pain, improve range of motion, and restore normal mobility and function. Scar remodeling therapy is especially helpful for women who have had breast surgery, such as breast reconstruction, reduction, mastectomy, biopsy, or lumpectomy.
New Heights Physical Therapist Gema Sanchez specializes in scar remodeling for women who have had breast surgery. Women who are concerned about the appearance or mobility of post-surgery scarring, or who have limited shoulder shoulder motion, will benefit from receiving therapy with Gema, who has over 25 years outpatient therapy experience.
Gema is passionate about helping women return to their full, normal lives without pain and with the best appearance and mobility of reconstruction and surgical scarring possible.
