Thank you for posting your question on Just Answer.
I would like to help you with your question, but I need a bit more information.
Are you having pain with movement?
How long did physical therapy last, what treatments were done in therapy, and when was your last treatment?
What limitations of movement are you having with your hand?
Are you taking any medications now?
Thank you for answering my questions.
I am relieved that you are going to Physical Therapy. Diligently following their directions in your therapy is what will help you to gain future movement. It is a slow tedious process, but the amount and type of movement encouraged by the therapist is what is critically important in your recovery. PT can often be recommended for 10 - 12 weeks. If the scar tissue is not exercised properly it can become hardened. The exercises should help to elongate the scar tissue if done correctly and will help with increasing your mobility. Perseverance is the key -- don't give up! There are no foods or medicine that can reverse the scar tissue, but you might discuss ultrasound therapy with your therapist if they have it available to see if it might help.
