Wound Care

Rehabilitation professionals play an important role in wound care by expediting healing, restoring normal function, and educating the patient and families on wound prevention.

Many non-healing wounds and sores are actually caused by other illness or underlying medical conditions that the patient may not be aware of. Diabetes, smoking, other causes of poor blood circulation, heart problems, poor nutrition and conflicting combinations of medications can often cause wounds to develop-especially in the legs and feet-that simply will not heal using conventional medicine.
