"How To Get Rid Of Hardened Scar Tissue...?"

Someone recently posted a question to me and asked “What do I do for hardened scar tissue?”

Hardened scar tissue can form on your body for lots of reasons. For instance, you could have a knee surgery where the sutures (for a variety of reasons) don’t hold the wound closed while it is healing (after the surgical cut). If you don’t have a tight suture on the scar, or the sutures come loose during the first week or so of healing, that wound will open. The body is going to try to heal that wound, but what it’s going to do is work to close up the wound as quickly as possible. A lot of times what can happen is that you can end up with these thick bands of hardened scar tissue.

These can become so thick and hardened that they can become very difficult to work with.

I even got an email from a lady one time who got so tired of her own scarring on her finger, and got so fed up with her doctor, that she took a butcher knife and scissors and cut out her scar tissue herself at home. (She said she had to stop when the pain got to be too much to bear.) This was hard to read about. My heart goes out to people when they feel they have no other options.

Here are a couple of ideas of things that you can do when you have hardened scar tissue.

There are a few different methods we recommend for dealing with hardened scars. I’m going to go through a couple of them today so that you can get a good idea of these techniques.

When you have a hardened scar, it’s like this bulb that builds up on top of the skin to connect one side of skin to another. If you have a hardened scar that came from some kind of cut or some kind of injury, one thing you can do is to work across that scarring.

What you want to do is take something like a twist tie or a pair of tweezers, or something that has a point on it. Make sure though that you are being careful and taking care of yourself while you use pointed tools on and around your scars.

If you take the point of the tweezers, you can work across the scar, perpendicular to how the scar lays on the skin.

On my own fingers, I have scars that could have developed into hardened scar tissue. On my ring finger on my left hand. I had an accident while playing high school football. The tendon detached from the last knuckle and I had to have surgery to re-attach the tendon. (My middle finger has scarring because (I believe), they cut the wrong finger – but that’s another story.)

I have 100% feeling now though in my scars, even though for a long time I had a very zingy sensation, which eventually went numb. I then learned how to work with these scars and got back the feeling into the tissue.

While the scars themselves are still somewhat hardened, the tissue is now so much looser and has so much more feeling.

So what I do is take a pair of tweezers, twisty tie, or something else with a point on it, and work across the scar. You want to make sure you are working at a point that is uncomfortable, but not painful.

Working across the hardened scar is going to do a couple of things.

You’re causing micro-tears along the scar. What this does is encourage nerve connections and circulation re-growth in the area, helping the nerves and blood vessels to work their way back across the hardened scar.

You can use your own fingernail, but I like something with a small point that is pretty firm, which is why I like using a pair of tweezers.

What happens over time is that you actually get this scarring to break down and become more pliable. This happens because as the blood vessels and nerves grow back into the tissue, the scars will return to and rehabilitate themselves into normal tissue.

When you’re working to get rid of scar tissue, it’s not really “getting rid of” scar tissue so much as it is taking the hardened scars and causing them to become normal tissue once again.

The goal of this is to get the skin more pliable, and to cause the skin (through these micro-tears) to return to normal skin tissue.

There are a few other things you can do with hardened scar tissue as well. I share some more suggestions for getting rid of hardened scars in the book “How To Heal Scar Tissue”.

Dear Jonathan,
I tore a muscle when I was in Jr. High when my coach was introducing me to weight training. Doing bench presses, he added weights with each pump. I felt something pop in my right shoulder and I had to have the spotter take the bar bell away before I dropped it. It hurt initially but I had not used that muscle much so I don't notice it much. Once in a while when doing push ups or lifting above my head. More recently I have been working with weight more and I have started to notice a tightness and pain in my shoulder. It makes it difficult to do minor work using those muscles only. A while back I had heard my dad mention scar tissue in muscle injury and that prompted me to find your site. 

I have read your book and I agree with the physiology of it and the nature of scar tissue. I will massage my shoulder and try to (if anything) loosen up the tendons as well as stretch, as that is when it has the most sensation...but bottom line is I have increased my range of motion[...] So thank you for writing How To Heal Your Own Scar Tissue, it was very informative and changed my outlook on my ability to heal.

While browsing the Internet on scar tissue - I came up with your site. I've been searching for a few months and this was the first time I saw your site.  

I had knee replacement 8 months ago and I can still feel the implant. The surgeon said that everything is fine and is it probably scar tissue.  He said other than moving the knee - (he didn't give any more specific exercises) - there was nothing to be done.

I was so upset when he said this. He is a top doctor in my area and I was shocked that there is nothing he can do.

I did Rehab, PT (as much as insurance would allow) and exercised at home. I don't do much now but ride the bike a little. Walking hurts my hip (which he said was probably caused from my back?)

All other sites I've seen on scar tissue just talk about the inability to bend the knee - which I can do to some degree.

Your book has been so great.  At least I know there is some hope with massage therapy which I was never told to do, and your book has taught me how to do this for myself, which again, has been so great.  I'm hardly noticing any pain from my scar now.

Thanks so much for your suggestions!
