SHELBYVILLE WOUND CARE SERVICES
Quality local care for non-healing wounds
A wound that won't heal can be a constant source of pain and frustration.
It can also be a serious medical problem for patients who do not get the
treatment and support they need. Nearly 6.7 million people in America
suffer from non-healing, chronic wounds. Conditions such as diabetes,
pressure ulcers, circulatory issues or injuries can put a patient at risk
for hard-to-heal wounds. At MHP Wound Care, our local care team can help
you get better, so you can get back to everyday life.
What is a non-healing wound?
A non-healing wound is a chronic wound that doesn’t heal within five
to eight weeks, even though you’ve been following your provider’s
instructions to take care of it. Non-healing wounds can cause deeper skin
erosion, infection and further complications. These conditions can be
very serious because they can lead to an additional illness or even the
loss of a limb. There are many different types of non-healing wounds,
but the most frequent is an ulcer.
Types of non-healing wounds:
- Pressure sores or ulcers
- Surgical wounds
- Radiation sores
- Venous leg ulcers
- Surgical, trauma wounds
- Arterial Ulcers
- Foot ulcers due to diabetes, poor blood flow, or swollen legs
