[Chronic wound] patients have a significantly poorer quality of life compared to healthy people. The loss of independence… can lead to several, sometimes subtle, changes in overall health and well-being. These changes include altered eating habits, depression, social isolation, and a gradual reduction in activity. The presence of these factors, along with immobility, not only influences the occurrence of further wounds, but also exacerbates their severity and jeopardizes their ability to heal.
How can I prevent chronic wounds from worsening?
Being at risk for chronic wounds does not mean you are powerless, though. You can opt to be proactive in your health care, live a healthy lifestyle, and implement the plan you develop with our team at the Wound and Vascular Center. These things will greatly reduce your risks, improve your overall prognosis, help you prevent infection, and empower you to live a fuller life.
