Wound care

Wound care involves medical interventions to heal a wound after injury. Specialized treatment is provided for wounds that are nonhealing or refuse to heal on their own. A vital aspect of treatment includes learning how to properly dress and care for a wound.

Conditions that can be treated with HBOT include:

  • Burns
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Gas gangrene
  • Compartment syndrome
  • Crush injuries
  • Necrotizing fasciitis
  • Osteomyelitis

Diabetes is a condition that often causes complications, including diabetic foot ulcers.

Our diabetes program includes educational information on diabetes and includes that in your individualized treatment plans. By learning how to manage this disease through nutrition, exercise and education, you can help avoid future foot ulcers.
