ProHealth Care Wound Healing Program
A wound that won’t heal is a health risk
While the human body usually does a great job of healing its own wounds, an estimated six million Americans suffer from chronic wounds that won’t heal. Chronic wounds can be caused by diabetes, circulatory problems and other conditions. Those who seek treatment at a facility specializing in wound care can reduce the risk of additional medical problems including serious infection and amputation.
If you have a wound that has not started to heal within two weeks or is not completely healed within six weeks, you should seek medical attention.
