The first form of scar therapy I have experienced is Neural Therapy, a German pioneered technique of injecting an anesthetic in multiple places around the scar. I have done this with three scars. The first scar I treated twice because I was SCREAMING in pain at me. This felt like being struck by lightning randomly throughout the day at the location of that scar. The first treatment failed, but the doctor who did it felt he didn’t manage do the whole length of the scar because it was partially hidden. However, the second treatment was completely successful. It stopped the pain. The other two areas I have had treated cause intermittent mild but annoying pain; neither of them had any results even though one of them has been treated multiple times. The doctor who performed this for me says he has seen miracle results with it though clearly not in every case. It did not impact my autoimmune problems at any noticeable level, but I was very grateful for the pain relief.
The second form of scar therapy I have done is cold laser therapy. This is a new treatment for me that I have only done once as I just recently started working with the chiropractor who owns the cold laser. In this case, we ran the cold laser back and forth over my scar for ten minutes. This is the scar which I had previously successful treated for pain with neural therapy. About nine minutes into the treatment, I felt an energetic shift in my body. The lights in the room became much brighter to my vision which is something I have experienced before during other successful treatments. What exactly the cold laser did with that scar I can’t explain. It didn’t immediately cause any changes in my health. However, it did do something on an energetic level that I could feel in my body. This chiropractor says he has treated many scars over the years including but not limited to accidental scars, surgical scars, and tattoos. It has made a significant difference for many.
So while I don’t think that for most people these therapies will be a miracle cure, they are definitely options to be considered, especially if your scars are causing you pain. They should also be considered if your autoimmune problems started after a surgery, accident, or other event which left a physical scar on or in your body.
