Wound Care

General foot care involves regularly checking the health of the feet in regards to circulation, ulcers, high-pressure risk areas. We will provide education on how best to care for wounds that are located on the lower extremities, (from the knee to the foot). Having an open wound increases the chances of infection. If you have a non-healing wound on your lower extremity, it is essential that you act to get it healed as quickly as possible to prevent infection and further complications. If you have diabetes, you are especially at risk for complications. The sooner a wound is treated the greater the patient's chances are of healing. JCRHC also has a wound nurse available to assist also.
