Causes and Symptoms of a Non-healing Wound
Non-healing wounds can be very serious and cause not only physical discomfort but an increase in mental stress. These wounds are also referred to as chronic wounds, which means they do not heal at the same pace one would normally expect, typically within 4-12 weeks.
Infections and medical conditions such as diabetes can cause non-healing wounds as well as several underlying health issues that may have previously gone unnoticed or untreated.
The causes of a non-healing wound could include:
- Poor circulation – without proper blood flow, the body cannot effectively remove bacteria from the area. Diabetes, high blood pressure, and peripheral vascular disease can all hinder proper blood flow, slowing the healing process.
- Infection – whether an infection is bacterial, viral, or fungal, if it is in or around an existing wound, healing time is greatly slowed.
- Medication – radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or corticosteroid drugs prescribed to reduce inflammation can slow the immune system and increase the risk of infection and non-healing wounds.
- Diabetes – diseases like diabetes affect the skin’s ability to heal itself; higher glucose levels weaken white blood cells, disrupting the natural ability to fight bacteria and heal.
Regardless of what is causing a chronic or non-healing wound, the good news is that there are ways to safely and effectively treat them without the need for risky procedures that may cause more damage.
Regenerative medicine has made tremendous strides, which include the Zenith Amniotic Membrane. This line of products is made from human amniotic membrane and fluid. These allografts provide the same protection and support as the body’s natural tissue.
Our Advanced Wound Care Treatment
Treating wounds with our advanced techniques starts with the amniotic membrane, which is the deepest layer within the placenta and is responsible for providing proper nutrition to an unborn baby while in the womb. Studies show that this membrane is made of essential molecules that can regenerate the body naturally, resulting in faster recovery and reducing pain.
The collection of this tissue requires no harm to the mother or child and is gained only through the mother’s consent. For decades, the amniotic membrane has been utilized for treatment to repair lost or damaged cartilage in joints.
The tissue is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-fibrotic, making it highly beneficial for repairing non-healing wounds.
