According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, three out of ten women undergo Caesarean deliveries every year. Although vaginal delivery is still the most preferred method, C-Section may be necessary due to existing maternal conditions or complications anytime during the pregnancy or childbirth.
While C-section carries a number of risks and discomforts, advancements in the medical field have helped make C-Section deliveries successful and safe. Perhaps one of the major concerns of many women undergoing this procedure is the post-procedure scars.
Dreaded C-Section Scar
During a C-Section delivery, the doctor cuts through the skin of the lower abdomen and deep into the uterus. This is where the baby is handled and delivered out of the womb. The incision is then closed with each tissue layer meticulously stitched. And just like any type of wound, the C-section incision will go through the normal healing process.
Fibrin formation or scarring is a necessary part of the healing process. In fact, its development is a good sign that you are progressing well. However, for some women, the body’s healing process goes into overdrive producing unnecessary scars, such as keloid or hypertrophic scar. Younger, dark-skinned women are prone to scar problem but anyone can suffer from it.
Scar Treatment Options
Problematic C-section scars come with a host of concerns. Aside from being unsightly, it can also lead to chronic pain.
The good news is that there are number of methods to heal your C-section scars and its associated side effects. There are invasive or surgical procedures such as scar revision or tummy tuck, as well as, non-surgical procedures such as laser therapy and steroid injections.
Micro-Current Point (MPS) Scar Release Therapy
Aside from these medical procedures, there is one emerging, highly effective procedure that is preferred by many women suffering from C-section scars. The procedure is known as Micro-Current Point Stimulation (MPS) or MPS Scar Release Therapy. Published research shows how MPS Scar Release Therapy helps reduce C-section pain. For patients suffering severe chronic pain, the pain outcomes reduced by 73% within 48 hours of the procedure. Studies show consistent positive outcome not just for C-section associated pain but as well as in other non-specific soft tissue chronic pain. Unlike other medically assisted and surgical scar treatments, MPS Scar Release Therapy works on the root cause of the problem. It treats the main cause of scars and adhesions deep inside the body.
MPS combines acupuncture’s long proven knowledge with medical science. Bioelectric energy is applied to key acupuncture points to initiate cellular release and electrical re-connection at the target point. As a result, electrical impulses that trigger scar formation are regulated at the cellular level.
This painless procedure has immediate results, such as visible changes in the pliability of the scar and easing out of its appearance. After series of MPS sessions, blood circulation, flow of energy, and lymph drainage in the C-section scar is normalized. Due to its proven benefits, many women who delivered through C-section have sought and found relief from MPS Scar Release Therapy.
