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
