What are Chronic & Non-Healing Wounds?
A chronic or non-healing wound is defined as a sore or wound that has not shown improvement from conventional treatments – such as over the counter medications and home remedies – in four weeks.
Common causes of non-healing wounds are often associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins, reaction to radiation therapy, traumatic injury, and immobilization. Additionally non-healing wounds of the feet among people with diabetes are among one of the most common non-healing wounds, and one of the most significant complications of diabetes.
When left untreated wounds may become infected, and non-healing wounds could lead to lower quality of life or even amputation.
