Had ACL reconstruction 8 months ago. Due to pain, I now need to get scar tissue reduced. How can I prevent rebuild up of scar tissue in the knee?

In brief: Scar tissue

Scar tissue develops as a result of injury to affected area, infection or surgery.
Performing surgery for the sake of scar removal is often time not very helpful. It's possible that the knee has been re-injured which is causing the pain. Surgical technique is the best way to reduce scar tissue but is still a literal and figurative "double edged" sword.
