Understanding C-Section Scars

C-section scars, also known as cesarean scars, are the result of a surgical incision made during the birth of a baby. The physical component of C-section scars can can leave behind scar tissue that may cause discomfort, tightness, and limited mobility. Additionally, C-section scars can carry an emotional component related to one’s birth experience, adding another layer of significance to the healing process.

Our Approach to Scar Therapy

At our clinic, we believe in taking a comprehensive approach to C-section scar therapy, addressing both the physical and emotional aspects of scar recovery. Our experienced team of healthcare professionals is dedicated to providing personalized care tailored to your unique needs and goals.

Your journey begins with a thorough assessment and consultation to evaluate the extent of your C-section scar and understand your specific concerns and goals. We take the time to listen to your experiences and develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.

Scar Therapy Options:

Dolphin Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS)

Dolphin MPS therapy is a painless treatment that combines microcurrent electrical stimulation with trigger point therapy to promote healing, reduce scar tissue buildup, and alleviate pain. By targeting specific points around the scar area, Dolphin MPS can improve tissue mobility and overall scar appearance.

Dolphin MPS is currently offered under Chiropractic Services with our Perinatal Chiropractor.

Massage Therapy

Our skilled therapists use specialized techniques such as myofascial release, scar tissue mobilization, and manual stretching to improve tissue mobility, reduce adhesions, and alleviate pain associated with C-section scars.


Acupuncture + Red Light

While traditional acupuncture needles are not inserted directly into C-section scars, our Registered Acupuncturist uses acupuncture points around the body to address underlying imbalances that may contribute to scar tissue formation and discomfort. Acupuncture can help alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and promote overall healing.  

Don’t forget to ask your therapist if Red Light is a good option for your scar healing.
