Wounds and ulcers that will not heal can lead to serious complications. Getting proper treatment from an experienced Podiatrist to provide you with the best possible solutions.
Many people who get some sort of wound or abrasion, sometimes take longer than expected to heal or are not responding to home remedies. Also, diseases such as diabetes can impede the body’s immune system and its ability to heal wounds effectively. A non-healing wound or ulcer can lead to serious health risks, along with debilitating foot pain, and even lead to amputations.
Fortunately, podiatrists are able to care for these types of wounds and are current on the most up-to-date treatment modalities. OC Advanced Foot Care has experience in managing and treating a variety of wounds and ulcers, specifically those found on the feet and ankles.
