Therapeutic Massage for Burn Scars


Course Description

Burn scar tissue that plays a role in persistent pain, inhibits quality of life, interferes with structure and organs can be safely addressed by skilled manual therapists.

This course includes interviewing techniques and clinical decision-making for working with burn survivors’ traumatic scarring. Scar management treatment can help with range of motion and improve their quality of life.
