Care of your Scar

Please note, this page is printable by selecting the normal print options on your computer.

It is important that your scar becomes soft and supple.

You will need to massage it regularly with a non perfumed cream or olive oil as follows:

• Apply cream over entire scar or as directed by your hand therapist.
• Rub in using firm circular movements for 5 – 10 minutes, applying more cream as required.
• Repeat the above steps 3 – 4 times a day, before exercises, as appropriate.

If you have any queries about these exercises or your treatment in the Hand Therapy Unit do not hesitate in contacting the unit on (01908) 995411 or speak to your Hand Therapist at your next appointment.
