SCARS: More Than Skin Deep
Scars tell the story of our lives, and everyone has at least one. But for many people, the appearance of these scars can cause them to feel uncomfortable or unhappy with their appearance. It’s not just cosmetic…scars can affect your skin, connective tissue, organ function, brain and emotional state. Both old and newer scars (including tattoos and piercings) can be a contributing factor to pain and impaired movement. Addressing the physical and emotional components of skin trauma is an important step in the prevention and treatment of chronic pain.
