Chronic and non-healing wounds can result from a number of factors, including diabetes, poor circulation, trauma, vascular disease, and immobility (which can lead to pressure ulcers, commonly known as bed sores).
People with diabetes are at particular risk. If you have a wound that won’t heal, you are not alone. Approximately 3 to 5 million Americans experience this condition. The good news is that you no longer have to suffer. The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center not only uses among the most advanced therapies available for healing, but it also addresses the underlying cause of the wound—for example, nutrition, lack of exercise, hygiene, ill-fitting shoes—to help eliminate recurrence.
