At Arch Medical Group, our vision for our practice is “Heal and restore.” Our entire team is dedicated to delivering treatments to successfully treat stubborn wounds to help our patients live healthier, happier lives.

Types of stubborn wounds

There are several types of wounds that can prove to be challenging to resolve. Some of the common types include:

  • Diabetic foot ulcers: These are open sores that occur on the feet of people with diabetes. They can be difficult to heal due to poor circulation and nerve damage.
  • Pressure ulcers: These are also known as bedsores and occur when a person stays in one position for a long time. They can be difficult to heal due to the constant pressure on the affected area.
  • Venous ulcers: These are open sores that occur on the lower legs due to poor circulation. They can be difficult to heal due to the underlying circulatory problems.
  • Surgical wounds: Some surgical wounds may be difficult to heal due to their size, location, or due to an underlying medical condition.
  • Burns: Severe burns can cause extensive damage to the skin and underlying tissues and may be very difficult to resolve.
  • Traumatic wounds: Wounds caused by accidents or injuries may be difficult to heal if they are deep, involve multiple layers of tissue, or the patient has an underlying medical condition affecting the natural healing capacity of the body.

The stages of healing

The body, when functioning optimally, will heal quickly and naturally. It goes through several stages to rebuild the tissues:

  • Hemostasis: This is the first stage of healing, where the body stops bleeding by forming a blood clot at the site of the wound.
  • Inflammation: This is the second stage of healing, where the body sends white blood cells to the site to fight off any infection and remove any debris.
  • Proliferation: This is the third stage of healing, where the body begins to rebuild the damaged tissue by producing new blood vessels and cells.
  • Remodeling: This is the final stage of healing, where the body strengthens and reorganizes the new tissue to restore its function and appearance.

During the healing process, the body also produces various growth factors and hormones that stimulate cell growth and repair. The healing process can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks, depending on the severity of the wound. A patient may be in a condition in which the ability to heal is not functioning as it should, leading to a stubborn, unhealing wound.

At Arch Medical Group, our whole-body approach to medical care allows us to identify the underlying condition that has caused the body to fail to heal and treat that condition to trigger natural healing. The treatments applied to a stubborn wound may include:

  • Pulse wave therapy
  • Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF)
  • Red light therapy
  • Whole-body vibration
  • IV Therapy
  • PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)
