When an incision is made through the tissues, many layers are affected. Even if the superficial scar heals well and looks neat, underneath this layer lies the connective tissues which may be more deeply affected. Scar tissue in this fascia is much thicker than undamaged fascia and can cause restriction in your movement, visible pinning or even pain and dysfunction.
Sometimes you will find lumps, bumps, gaps, restrictions, ‘sticky bits’, thicker bits in this fascia in or around the scar – often times far wider than at the incision site, especially in the case of key hole surgery which can look so minor on the outside.
