A chronic wound–or non-healing wound–is a sore, ulcer or other skin condition that has not responded significantly to conventional treatment within a 30-day period. These wounds can be associated with immobility, poor circulation, or poorly functioning veins. If left untreated, it could lead to serious complications, or even amputation.
If you require continued wound care, we have physical therapists and occupational therapists who are certified in wound care management. This is common amongst people with spinal cord injuries, due to a higher risk of pressure ulcers. Our treatment team will quickly address the issue in order to promote healing and work with you on future wound prevention.
