Wound care is a specialized branch of rehabilitation concerned with healing in long-term wound issues.
Structured wound care is often prescribed when wounds become chronic – going a long time without proper healing. Many factors contribute to chronic wounds, including diabetes, circulation, infection and lack of mobility in the physically disabled.
