Incorporating exercise as an integral part of wound management
Today's Wound Clinic
Technological advances spanning the last few generations have simplified many things in our everyday lives while creating a faster paced way of life. Unfortunately, as everything around us has seemingly gotten quicker, our population as a whole has become more sedentary. Society in general has become less active, and, not coincidently, the prevalence of diseases related to chronic wounds continues to rise as improvements to healthcare also continue to occur. That is not to say that the rise in complications, such as diabetes and obesity, solely can be attributed to these factors. Widespread improper nutrition and larger segments of the population that are struggling economically have played roles as well.
