Defining Massage Techniques used for Burn Scars (Spanish)


Published on: 01.19.2016

Experienced burn therapists from six countries in North and Central America met to define massage techniques used on burn scars. Consensus was achieved on ten techniques commonly used by burn therapists in clinical practice. The techniques were labeled and the specific procedures were described. They were categorized in terms of whether they mobilize the tissue (move/ release the tissue) or create friction with the tissue (create resistance between the tissue and the surface of the provider’s hands). Parameters of scar evaluation important to assess prior to massage treatment were described. The massage techniques can be used alone or in combination.

Surgical excision of burned skin and prompt coverage is the standard of care for burns that are deep partial thickness or full thickness in depth. Early excision and grafting of large burns in children and young adults will decrease the number of infections and improve survival rates compared to delayed excision. The first stage of operative management of deep partial and full thickness burns is removal of burned skin, or eschar. This videotape illustrates different techniques for excision of burn wounds.

When burns occur circumferentially, patients with these burn patterns are at risk for serious complications due to compromised blood flow to the extremities or restricted respiration caused by edema. Escharotomy procedures performed at the appropriate stage of treatment can help alleviate these life-threatening conditions and decrease mortality and morbidity. The most commonly performed escharotomy procedures are discussed and demonstrated in this video.
