Wound Care Recovery
Unfortunately, wounds can become one of the dangers of an aging body. Skin slowly loses the ability to regenerate itself. Thin skin, complications from diabetes, compromised immune systems and more means wounds must be professionally treated. We know you don’t want yourself or your loved one in pain, so we also work on pain management and infection reduction.
When Wounds Don’t Heal
Some wounds start out as “acute” meaning they happen suddenly and can be treated at home. But, if they fail to heal properly, they can develop into a “chronic” wound. Unfortunately at this point the body is not delivering what the wound needs to heal – blood, oxygen, and nutrients. Now the wound requires professional attention before it gets any worse. Potential side effects include:
- Severe Inflammation
- Mobility Issues

There are a number of reasons you should seek our professional wound care specialists. You will be receiving the best care which means your wound will heal faster and more effectively.
