Today we’re focusing on scar massage. The good news is that more and more doctors are teaching their patients about scar massage — yay! — which helps improve the mobility of your core tissues so that they function optimally. But, maybe your doc didn’t, which is why we’re including this topic here. Once you’ve had a followup visit around 6 weeks and been told that your incision has healed well, you’ll want to start practicing scar massage for a few minutes every day.
