If you’re injured, you face the possibility that you might be scarred. Scars come in many sizes, shapes and forms, and result from many more types of injuries or damage to your body than are easily seen on the outside.
You can be left with scars if you’ve been bitten by a dog, stabbed or shot. Burns from a fire or chemicals can leave unsightly, debilitating scars. And surgery inevitably results in some scarring. Even the best plastic surgeons cannot eliminate all scars. The best and most creative methods of treatment for hiding the scars do not make the damage they cause go away.
Scars can mar our bodies permanently. And they rarely, if ever, get better.
Some scars are invisible. Damage to your muscles, bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and vital organs leaves scarring that can go completely unnoticed, even to trained eyes. You cannot see the damage caused by a torn ligament or muscle that heals on its own.
A surgical procedure that is necessary to repair damage to your bones must violate the layers of muscle and tissue, leaving permanent scarring that cannot be seen. Surgery involving the vital organs, such as our heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, stomach and intestines also leaves invisible scarring. Even though you cannot see these scars, they are still there. And these scars can cause you problems.
And what about emotional scarring? Traumatic experiences and injuries can leave a person struggling for many months and years to recover from the fear and emotional stress they were forced to endure. Specialized medical care and attention is necessary to help a person find a way to return to living a normal lifestyle without fear and anxiety.
