contracture scar
Explanation:
A contracture scar is a permanent tightening of skin that may affect the underlying muscles and tendons. This can limit mobility and damage the nerves. Contractures develop when normal elastic connective tissues are replaced with inelastic fibrous tissue. This makes the tissues resistant to stretching and prevents normal movement of the affected area.
