Scar Management:

It is important to try and improve the tensile strength and flexibility of the collagen fibres as they are being formed by techniques such as scar massage. This also helps to prevent the scar from 'sticking down' where it shouldn't. Sometimes silicone gel sheeting is used to help flatten scars and keep them hydrated.

Swelling Management:
The use of pressure gloves, compression bandaging and digital sleeves can be useful.

This can be helpful to encourage healing of ligaments/tendons and is also often beneficial for scarring.
