Occupational Therapists play a vital role in burns and scar tissue management. We can help to flatten, soften and lighten your scar.
Scars are often unwanted reminders of injury, surgery or events. They can result in a physical impact such as decreased movement and discomfort. Scars can also have a negative impact on well being, and limit achievement and happiness. The question "how can I get rid of my scar", is therefore something we frequently hear.
At Adelaide & Hills Hand Therapy we understand the impact that scars can have on people at different developmental ages and stages. And provide understanding and give care in time during our treatment sessions for scar management. We respect your privacy, and as such all of our sessions are held in private, not shared treatment rooms.
Our hand therapist has extensive experience in the specialist field of burns & scar management, having practiced with leaders in this field in large hospitals in Swansea (Morrison Hospital supra-regional Burns & Plastics Unit in Wales), London and Adelaide.
We can help manage scar appearance on all different parts of the body; - face & neck - chest, breast, shoulder and back - hand, arm & leg
We can help manage different types of scars, including; - hypertrophic (thick, raised and darker scars) - keloid scars (raised scars extending beyond the original scar border) - acne scars (chest, back, shoulders, face) - scar contractures (over joint spaces often from burns).
We supply our scar management products from a local South Australian supplier here in Adelaide. And continually following the latest evidence for scar management techniques. We work with several Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeons in Adelaide, and happily work with people's treating GP and surgeon to achieve clients optimal scar minimisation.
