What if your scars were the cause of your pain?

Whether caused by trauma or surgery, scars are always an aesthetic nuisance, depending on their location.

Today, advances in surgery mean that surgical scars are finer, more supple and more functional. However, a scar remains the mark of a skin lesion. Tissues regenerate and the healing process is initiated naturally, but the injured area retains a traumatic memory and can be the source of persistent functional disorders.

How do you know if your pain is related to your scars, how should you manage it and what can you do to rehabilitate old scars and release the tension they generate? We explain!

Article summary

How does wound healing work?

In the event of a cut, burn or injury, skin tissue is damaged and must be rebuilt. This process is called healing. In a natural way for the smallest wounds, or through surgery, the edges are reconstructed and leave a more or less visible trace, the scar.

The skin, made up of three distinct layers, protects our body by forming a semi-permeable envelope. The visible part of the skin is the epidermis, the superficial layer in direct contact with the outside world. Next comes the dermis. Variable in thickness depending on the region of the body, the dermis is a connective tissue. Finally, the hypodermis is the deepest and thickest layer of the skin.

In the case of a major injury, the healing of the deeper layers always follows the same process:

  • The wound suture the riverbanks meet
  • The coagulation
  • The infectious (it is necessary to let the bacterial cycle take place)
  • The inflammation reaction exudation and fleshy buds
  • The resolution with epidermal regeneration

Why do scars cause disturbances?

At every stage of the healing process, braking or acceleration may occur. If the area becomes infected, the scar may have difficulty closing. Scar fibers can also hypertrophy, causing thickening and redness on the surface.

Physiotherapists, osteopaths, occupational therapists and doctors regularly observe disorders linked to disrupted scars. Even old ones, they almost systematically retain a traumatic memory related to the injury or surgical procedure. This condition can lead to mechanical or painful discomfort, sometimes at a distance from the injury.

Disturbances are observed on :

  • Locomotor functions following operations, fractures, tears on knees (menisci, cruciates, prostheses), hips (prostheses), ankles (fractures, plates, torn ligaments), quadriceps, ischios and calves (tears) ...
  • Standing up following back operations, caesarean sections and celioscopies,
  • Hand and arm movements following fractures and operations on upper limbs, shoulders, elbows, wrists and hands.

A scar, even an insignificant one on the belly, which seems totally integrated, very often continues to cause disturbances at various levels.

How to deal with the various scarring problems?

STIMCARE patches are the natural, effective solution for releasing tension and rehabilitating scars.

The patches function like mirrors, reflecting over 95% of the infrared light emitted by the human body. This concentration of endogenous infrared activates blood microcirculation, stimulates oxygen supply and promotes scar recovery.

Non-transdermal, the patch is chemical-free. It stays on the skin for at least five days, and its beneficial healing action lasts for up to two weeks.

For effective action, cover the scar with 1 or 2 infrared patches.

Today we can see :

  • 90% of positive results in the relief and, above all, the functional release of gestures and movements disturbed by scars, with patches applied for a total of 1 month.
  • 60% improvement in the aesthetic coloration of scars with patch wear exceeding two months.
  • After a few minutes, the release of scarred movementsThis is deactivated by the action of the patch. By sending back endogenous infrared rays, the patch stimulates the dilation of micro-capillaries and the reactivation of nerve endings. This returns normal information to the brain, automatically restoring the body's natural patterns.
  • If the scar is swollen, keloid, red or adherent, the activation of microcirculation thanks to infrared radiation will gradually reactivate all healing phases. After 2 to 4 months of daily use of the patches on the scar, we observe a reduction in coloration, a reduction in thickness, a release of adhesions - in short, a return to a healthy, supple, white and normal scar.
  • To amputate them, patches of scarring allow them abolish all painful sensations of phantom limbs. Keep for at least 1 month.

It is possible to revive scarring processes and rehabilitate scars that are decades old. Patches can be applied as soon as scars close, 30 to 45 days after the injury or operation. What's more, the patches totally block UV rays, protecting the scar from the sun, thus avoiding burns or disturbances during the scarring phases, which last at least 18 months from scar closure. Don't wait any longer to complete the treatment of your old scars!

Understanding musculoskeletal disorders

Musculoskeletal disorders, also known as MSDs, are common multi-factorial diseases of the musculoskeletal system (legs, arms, back, neck, etc.).

Professional and extra-professional activities can trigger, aggravate and maintain the onset of these disorders.

MSDs affect all soft tissues (periarticular) such as muscles, joints, tendons and nerves. This functional discomfort, responsible for persistent pain, has repercussions on a variety of bodily regions and, ultimately, on quality of life. We take stock of the situation in this article.
