Serious or slow healing wounds can make traveling for care difficult. Fortunately, we have wound care specialists right here in Hereford.
When wounds don’t heal properly, they can develop into serious acute wounds or chronic wounds that take months or longer to fully heal. Underlying conditions such as poor circulation can cause wounds to heal slowly, and it’s important to know the signs of poor circulation that can lead to improper healing.
Signs of poor circulation include:
Swelling in the legs
Discoloration in the legs or feet
Pain in hands or feet
