Diagnosis And Treatment
If physical therapy and exercise are not able to control contracture scars, surgery will likely be required. Common surgical remedies for contractures include skin grafts and flap procedures. Newer techniques such as a Z-plasty, in which two triangular flaps of skin are transposed to increase soft tissue length, may also be used.
