What Constitutes a Non-Healing Wound?
A non-healing wound is a wound that does not heal within the expected time frame, despite proper treatment and care. Chronic non-healing foot wounds can have significant physical, emotional, and financial consequences if they remain untreated. At our practice, we determine the root cause of your wound so that you can start healing quickly and safely before any further damage occurs.
Non-Healing Wounds Causes
Non-healing wounds can be caused by a variety of factors, including underlying health conditions, poor circulation, and infection. Some common types of non-healing wounds include diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, venous stasis ulcers, and surgical wounds. These wounds can be especially concerning for patients with diabetes, as they are at a higher risk for developing complications from non-healing wounds. It is vital to have an assessment done by a specialist, like Dr. Jason Spector at Florida Foot and Ankle Specialists, to determine the underlying cause of the wound and develop an effective treatment plan.
Our treatment plans also focus on prevention measures such as changing footwear regularly and keeping feet dry to reduce the risk of further infections or re-injury. First, we conduct an initial examination where we assess the size, depth, and location of the wound to determine its severity. Then our team will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This may include antibiotics, topical ointments or creams, wound dressings, and possibly surgery if necessary. Regular care visits with your specialist will be scheduled so that progress can be monitored closely. When a wound is healing properly it may need additional support such as compression wraps or special shoes to keep them protected while they heal.
