The contracture is developed due to the elastic tissue replacement by non-elastic or non-stretchy fibre-like tissues and makes it hard to stretch the area and prevents normal movement.
Contracture particularly occurs in the skin, the tissues underneath, and the muscles, tendons, ligaments surrounding a joint. The contracture affects the movement of the body parts as well as function in a certain body part that also causes the pain in the affected areas.
The Causes behind a Contracture

The Burn Scar Contracture
The burn scar contracture is referring to the tightening of skin after a second or third-degree burn.
When a skin is burned, the surrounding skin begins to pull together, resulting in a contracture. It must be treated promptly as the burn resultant contracture blocked the movement around the injured area.
The Surgical Treatment is Allowed
The burn scar contracture doesn’t go away on their own, but can improve with a passage of time if the physiotherapy and splinting is followed by the patient.
If the scar and tightness of the affected skin persisted for a long then the surgical procedure is performed to correct the contracture deformities. The technique may include the local skin Flaps (Z-plasty) or skin grafting (full thickness or split thickness).
